Customer Reviews

They seem to stay in tune more than other strings and also take to bending well.
MetalFan
Ordered these to restring an old acoustic guitar and was happy with the result of the newly installed strings.
Wes
They're gentle on the finger, and I feel like there is less tension than D'addario.

Have not used my guitar for years, decided to try it again. Forgot most stuff about the guitar! These strings seem to be well made, had no problem with packaging, etc. Bought 3 packs; all were sealed boxes, strings were
in packages (2 per pack, 6 total). Brand new, no tarnish or other signs of use. Priced very well also, and were
received in 3 days time, standard shipping.

I've been using Martin strings since I started playing the guitar at age 8. I always test out each new string concept as they come out -- Elixir coated-strings, Martin SP+, D'Addario EXP, even the Adamas (Ovation) "composite-gauging' strings.

Honestly, I keep returning to Martin's basic strings because, well, they just sound great and also tend cost less than most comparison others. If you insist on spending extra money on guitar strings, pay the extra dollar for Martin's Marquis-level which adds a silk-wound ball to the end of each string. Why not protect your vintage guitar's valuable bridge as much as possible?

Of course it's true you do have to change these strings more often than the coated, but I've always felt the free-ringing (undamped) natural tone is well worth the trade-off.

Note: if you like a less bright, warmer tone go with the 92/8 phosphor bronze. See Martin's website for details.

These strings are not the greatest. They last a long time but they just don't sound as good as some others. Of course sound is subjective, but for me, they just don't have the resonance and sustain as D'Addario EJ11 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings, Light, 12-53.

Good Strings, plus, they send out picks for free

Just it, one thing, once take it out of bag, really hard to put it in again ...

Looking for a source for cheap strings, and these are great and at a great price. They whomp my local guitar store, and are a better string for finger picking.

Amazon has the best price for guitar strings hands down. These Martin strings are excellent. I find light gauge a little thin for my liking, but for the price (around $3.50) it's a quirk I can put up with. The strings are cheap enough to change monthly if I really wanted. I haven't been able to play guitar as much as I like so I find myself just changing strings out every few months.

Can't beat the price.
