I was looking for light tension Martin Silk-n-Steel M1400 to put on my Ancient guitar. But I found these on sale so I gave them a shot. Once I got a 5-pack and tried them on a couple of my guitars I decided that I Love these. I put them on my newer guitars too. They are very easy to play because of the Low Tension "Silk" part. And the Phosphor part Sounds good. They sound good straight acoustic, as well as amplified on my Acoustic Electric guitar. I just pre-ordered a bunch of them for when MF gets them back in stock. And the current price is unbeatable too.

Too bright for my ear.
I may be a stick-in-the-mud. I tried these strings in an attempt to remove a little of the brightness from my Martin HD28. I wanted a little more pop sound than Blue Grass. I got 60's 12 string sound instead. I just put them on today. I will remove them tomorrow. Some will love them. I am still searching for MY String! The Silk and Phosphor are not it! It may be the lighter guage.
Martin Quality.
Value priced.

    Comments about Martin FX130 Silk and Phosphor Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    Great strings, will try them on all acoustics here. Put a set on old Gibson archtop, wound strings quickly mellow to a warm bassy tone. After a few days noticed the plain strings had taken on a brass/copper patina, not sure why this is but they sound great and the color matches the others now! As far as the flex core, can't tell a great difference compared to other strings.

      Needed to restring 6 of my acoustics and these were on sale. I read they were low tension but I have seen other strings that state that. These feel like electric strings but sound like acoustics..

          The review required a comment, so they produce a nice constant tone when strumming.

                  Comments about Martin FX130 Silk and Phosphor Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                  I have played professionally. I'm an old guy now, but I do know strings. When I first tried these strings I gave them a good review, and I stand by what I said originally. There are, however, a couple of things you should know. These strings don't pick up well with a sound hole pickup or on an archtop guitar. They're great for acoustic playing though. Also, if your action is low, be prepared to adjust your truss rod. These strings have less tension. and you may end up with fret buzz. Loosening your truss rod a bit, might eliminate that problem.

                      Comments about Martin FX130 Silk and Phosphor Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                      Bought these to try on my very inexpensive Jasmine guitar. This was the very first guitar I bought and it always was just OK, not really easy to play nor a great sound. These strings took my guitar to a new level, both in sound and play-ability. I never imagined this guitar could ever sound any better than what it always had, regardless of the different strings I tried. They even made playing bar cords on this guitar easy because of the flexibility. The sounds of the low's are low and the high's are high, as they should be.
                      I am thankful I took time to give these strings a try, as of now these will be my "go to" strings.
                      Have to admit too, the cost is very reasonable. I don't know how long the strings will stay good in the packaging but I will buy quite a few more to keep on hand.
