Martin SP 80/20 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.

Good tone. Wish it had longer life.

I'm a big fan of Martin strings, and I love the way they feel. The 80/20s work great for fingerstyle--they give nice chime and clarity. Very articulate, and they sound nicely balanced on my Lowden. The only problem is that they die out a bit quick, in less than a month for me.

Good thing Shoreline offers them for such a great price!

Martin acoustic strings

I have used Martin SP 3100 strings on all of my guitars. Not only my Martins but I have several other makes as well. I am retired and only change my strings about every couple months now. But I am very glade I found Shoreline Music because they have an excellent price on the strings I use. Thank you Shoreline and keep up the good wood.
