Great String

Its The Old Time Picker again, I've tried about every string there is, I have 32 Guitars that I string myself, I bought 50 sets of Elixir strings and had to throw 42 sets away they were bad from the factory bad sounding coating missing on some no ball on the end of some, Before this I had pretty good luck with them so I don't know what happened with this bunch, But anyway, I purchased 2 Martin guitars this year a HD35 and a D18 both had the SP7200 on them, That was June and August 2016 I still have them on the guitars and this January 23, 2017, And don't think I don't play either, I'm Blind and set home every day just playing guitar, I play each Martin every other day, I play on them about 4 hours a day, And yes the strings are still sounding great, That's 5 and 6 months on a set of strings, I love working on guitars and want to change the strings just to be working on the guitars but I just can't take off a set of strings that sound so great. well back to Pickin and Grinin,,,,,The Old Time Picker

Martin Lifespan MSP7200

The MSP7200's came installed on my new DRSGT Martin from the factory,(purchased at Sweetwater, I play in a church trio, and for leisure). After a couple of months, I tried a set of the,"light" gauge just to see any differences, really seemed to have the same play ability as the mediums, not quite the depth or volume however. Again, after a couple of months, I ordered a set of the mediums, and found the medium's to have the depth of sound and volume I first remembered when I received my new guitar. These (MSP7200) will be my strings of choice from now on. Rest assured, you will not be disappointed with the sound or the ease of play of these strings, and they have a long life!!

Update to previous review

I found that the Light version (.012) have the same gentle touch and action as the Stock Elixir on Taylor guitars, however they still have a clearer and better defined sound then the Elixir. No need to modify the action after all to accommodate these..I strongly recommend Taylor to put Martin MSP7100 SP Lifespan (.012/.045) on some models such as Dreadnought.

Better definition then Elixir Nanoweb

My luthier recently put s set of these on my Taylor DN-3 (same as 310). He convinced me that the coating lasted longer than the string itself and so give them a shot. He failed to tell me how good they sound though. One fine evening I started jamming on my DN-3 and I fell in lover with it for the second time. The sound is amazing. However they are a bit more stiff then the Nanoweb 80/20. I just switched back to the Nanoweb and the difference is remarkable. The sound of Nanoweb 80/20 is dull compared to the Lifespan. In the past I tried the Nanoweb Phosphore Bronze. They are good for blues but they are even stiffer then the Lifespan. I'm ordering a few sets of Lifespan right now, and will stick to them from now on. I will adjust the action of accordingly, to make it easier to play, but I cannot live another day without that sound, period. Martin strings use to be a joke to me because they lasted only a few hours due to my acid hands, but Martin really hit the spot with these. They last as long as the Elixir Polyweb, but sound clearer then the Nanoweb. After a month, they look and sound like new. I'm going try the 12 strings set as well on my Taylor 456.

Martin Lifespan SP strings

I've been looking for a string like this. I liked the sound of Elixirs, but the long-lasting clarity was always short-lived because I'd break a string after 3 or 4 shows. Elixirs were expensive and unstable for me. I was a little skeptical of a "coated" string because of that. The Martin Lifespan SPs proved to be stable and the clarity and punch was just as long-lasting as the Elixirs. Highly recommend them for players who are unhappy with Elixirs.
