Martin Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings

Martin Strings, like most of the strings we carry, sound great. Most varieties sound as good as—or even better than—D'Addarios, the industry standard for great string tone. But what sets them apart from all the other good-sounding strings out there is this: They simply don't break. Martin gives a technical explanation of this on their website, and there's a reference somewhere to lots of research and collaboration with specialty steel producers. But the real test is on stage. And whenever I run across a worship leader or other stage player who used to break a lot of strings, they now swear by Martins. And the endorsement of actual working musicians is always worth a lot more in my eyes than celebrity endorsements.

Excellent Phosphor Bronze Strings.

I purchased these in medium for use on a Taylor GS Mini-e Koa and on a Gibson J-50. These strings seemed to come to stable pitch very quickly - Better than most new strings. Also, the tension and feel of the strings is excellent. The tone definitely "checks all the boxes" for Phosphor Bronze, with above average volume, and a fine balance between warmth and brightness. Highly recommended for guitars with a neutral to slightly bright character. For guitars with a warm or dark character, 80/20 strings might be a better choice. Still, these deserve five stars - If you like Phosphor Bronze strings, you will like these. Buy with confidence from Shoreline!
