You’re going to have to play some games to get Elixirs in the right gauges. Closest I can find is an electric ‘Super Light’ set, which is .009-.042. Either that, or you’ll be buying lots of strings just to get what you need.

Or you can just buy the Newtones, which will actually come out cheaper than two sets of the Elixirs, and be delightful to play. Plus the fun of getting something in the mail from the UK
