Great acoustic string set

After years of being committed to the Elixir brand of acoustic guitar strings, I decided to try a few other brands that were recommended by other friends who play guitar. This martin string set has a very nice feel and tone, the "B" string harmonic on a few of my guitars can be weak in volume, these strings make a big difference in this area as well. I'm very impressed with these strings so far, I've installed them on martin 000-18, and two different rosewood guitars, 812 from Taylor and 00 custom from Bourgeois. All of these guitars just sound better with these strings. I highly recommend these strings, so glad I gave them a try...

Great strings

I play a Martin guitar in a band and the band members said what a difference these strings make .I have to agree.Love the brightness and sound I get.

Keep Coming Back to These

I don't know what sets these apart but on my Martin Custom D Rosewood absolutely nothing gives me the feel, combination of brightness and warmth. (But let's face it, depends on the player and the guitar, these won't be right for everyone. Martins, especially rosewood, tend to be warm with a great low end but sometimes lacking brightness. When I put these on, I get it all. These are not like other Martin Phosphor Bronze. Like most of us I try others from time to time, and keep finding myself preferring the Clapton's Choice. I just tried to save money by buying three sets of Martin's basic phosphor bronze. Now I am trying to use them up so I can go back to Clapton's Choice. By the way, Sweetwater is my absolute favorite online music supplier, period. I always come here first.

Martin Strings on a Taylor Guitar? Yes!

Mustang vs. Camaro, Fender Stratocaster vs. Gibson Les Paul. Martin vs. Taylor. Seems everyone has a strong opinion one way or the other. I was fortunate enough to be able to buy a Taylor 324-CE Koa Fall Limited 2014 from Sweetwater. Great tone. Naturally, it came with Elixir Nanoweb coated strings. Within 2 months, the coating started flaking off like a snake shedding its skin. Same thing happened a few months before with a set I had on a PRS SE Angelus. Time for a string change. I liked the warm tones of the Taylor Koa and didn't want to stray too far from that sound. The description on these Martins sounded like it would be a decent match. Well, not only did it make the Taylor infinitely more playable, the sound went from 'Great' to 'Absolutely Incredible'. Suddenly it sounded like it cost a grand or so more. Deeper, more resonant lows and sparkling highs while still retaining the warm traditional koa midrange sound. Also, it sounds a bit louder across the board. As an additional bonus, they stay in tune MUCH better, especially through the nasty weather changes this past winter. Can 7 bucks make that big a difference? Call Jay at x1288 and try a set. I think you will be equally impressed.
