NASHVILLE, TN, November 13, 2007 — Leading studio bassist Glenn Worf, whose vibrant career has seen him perform and record with such top artists as Aaron Neville, Toby Keith, Larry Carlton, Tammy Wynette, Marty Robbins, Lonny Mack, Bob Seger and Mark Knopfler, is among the latest professional players to string with
Elixir Strings, Worf confides, have become his perennial favorites. “What struck me from the beginning upon first playing with Elixir Strings was its amazing sound right out of the box,” explains Worf. “There was no need for any break-in period. They were immediately ready to play the minute they were strung onto my bass. To my ear, they always have the exact sound I am looking for.”
While Worf says he spends a lot of time outdoors facing “very demanding conditions for strings,” he adds that Elixir Strings deliver an additional benefit to its exceptional sound. “When first trying out Elixir Strings, I had no idea that they could last so long. That’s the other reason why I became such a fan. They always sound great immediately and last for an incredible amount of time.”
Worf is playing his Elixir Strings alongside several artists. He is recording new albums with country greats Alan Jackson and George Strait as well as with new artist Charlie Pate.
About Elixir Strings
Elixir Strings is the pioneer in coated string technology and is available in two string ‘flavors.’ Ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating provides the bright tone and punch of uncoated strings, yet keeps their lively tone three to five times longer than ordinary strings. The thin coating is nearly undetectable — providing the feel of traditional strings. Elixir Strings with original POLYWEB Coating also sound great three to five times longer than ordinary strings, have a balanced tone with smooth response, feel comfortably smooth, and reduce finger squeak. Elixir Strings are available in a full range of gauges for acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, banjo, and mandolin. Today, Elixir Strings are installed as original equipment by a growing list of discriminating electric guitar and bass manufacturers including Ibanez, Tom Anderson Guitarworks, Brian Moore Guitars, Carvin, Melancon Guitars as well as premium acoustic guitar luthiers such as Taylor Guitars, Santa Cruz Guitar Company, Alvarez-Yairi, Lakewood Guitars, RainSong Graphite Guitars, Carvin, and Goodall Guitars. Elixir Strings are endorsed by popular artists such as Melissa Etheridge, Train, Dave Mason, Michael W. Smith, Jim Messina, Christopher Cross, Bob Seger, and Drowning Pool.
