          These are always the best for me. I get extra lights for ease of playing, but there is no sacrifice of sound or tone. They just sing on my Martin SWD.

              Makes a cheap guitar with a high action play easier and sound alot better. I use these all the time on students guitars. It amazes me how they make these discount store cheapo's sound!

                  I had never used Martin acoustic strings before but now I think I'm hooked. Not as bright as Elixir, Ernie Ball, Dean Markley or D'Adario. I like the sound and they feel "broken in," which is nice.

                    After finding out that Kevin "Barrelhouse" Burke uses Marquis strings on all of his guitars, including his Ovation, I decided to put them on my Ovation 1994 Collector's Edition. It definitely improved the tone over any of the strings I've used before, including Elixirs. He beats the heck out his strings and they last, so I'd imagine mine will do fine in that regard. I'm ordering another set for my wife's guitar.

                      Wonderful Strings: Martin Marquis Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings

                      By Stubbford

                      from Chicago

                      Comments about Martin M1000 Marquis 80/20 Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                      These are amazing. I used these to replace a set of Ernie Ball rock and blues Earthwoods--which I had liked just fine and used for quite some time (not the same set...you know what I mean)--and it's like I'm playing a completely new guitar. I was compelled to immediately write this review.

                      Comments about Martin M1000 Marquis 80/20 Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                      I have used many types of strings from elixers to Dean Markley's and everything in between but you cannot find a better sounding string than the Martin Marquis. I use them on an 82 Yamaha FG180 and when I first play with strangers in a jam session (playing Martin Guitars) they ask me "damn what kind/brand of guitar is that"? I tell them "it's the strings" although the guitar is not a high end instrument it is a good guitar. The marquis really set it off. Most of the time the strings hold up but here lately i have had some durability and tuning problems (not staying tuned). Do they sell lower end or reproduction marquis that i am not aware of. Anyway these are good strings man.

                      These strings are probably the best I have ever used on my fender DG100 acoustic guitar. Before I restrung it, it sounded soft and weak. But after 15 minutes of restringing, this guitar sounds more bright and crunchy, just as I like it. Buy them now!!!

                      Used to Play Markleys until I tried these. Nice balance of tone and playability. Rich sound for a lighter gauge. I love them. Won't use anything else.
