For a steel string acoustic guitar I would never put any other brand but Elixir on the thing - unless I just happened to be about to perform live or make a recording, and in those kinds of cases, I could still confidently use the Elixir strings.....they just last a really long time, and sound new seemingly forever.
Now there are two different kinds of Elixir now, Polyweb and nanoweb. The polyweb has a thicker coating than the nanoweb, so those will last longest. The nanoweb are coated much more thinly, so those strings will sound a bit brighter, last a good long time - but not so long as the polyweb.
I would have to agree with Mr. Shaw, Elixir strings last a long time, but they're kind of pricey. D'addario EXP strings are less expensive and last as long, but they don't feel quite as good as the Elixir strings.
Personally, I just use D'Addario light phosphor bronze strings and wipe them down after playing.
For my regular acoustic guitar I use Ernie Ball strings ~ inexpensive and long lasting ~
Acoustic..John Pearce and coated strings ..Elixir are very good. Ball strings are very good also.
