For those who play for a living; and especially those who play intense music - these strings are perfect. I replace my strings every time that I play, and when I do that, I need strings that are economical AND sound good. I have little care for longevity because I do not use them for more than a couple of days. They are VERY bright and produce deep bass. I assume that if I was ever a "major league musician" I would probably switch to elixir strings; but for now these get the job done.

I play for a living. I bought 10 packs and can't play 1 four hour gig without breaking a string. I am not just talking about the skinny strings either. All of them. These are cheap strings at a cheap price. The Martin phosphor bronze are much better.

Great for thumb style players

By Rev JDean

from Greenwood, IN

Comments about Martin M140 80/20 Bronze Light 10-Pack Acoustic Guitar Strings:

These strings have the perfect balance of strong bass and clear trebles that give thumb-style players a great sound. The light gauge provides strong sound and good bend flexibility. For folks like me that change strings regularly, the M140s are a great value.

    I use these strings on my acoustics that won't handle medium strings. They sound nice and bright. I haven't had any breakage issues even though I play quite hard.

          I play for a living. I am heavy handed and play a lot of lead but I can't make it through one gig without breaking at least two strings. My first gig I broke an A and a D string. The Martin phosphor bronze are better for sure.

            I have been using D Addario Phosphor bronze for the past few years and find they were far superior in tone than the Martins.As I changed strings I noticed the D Addario strings that I was taking off had more tone left than the new Martins . I will not buy Martin strings again.Disapointed

            These Martin strings (and the phosphor bronze) are my daily strings and serve me well! Affordable strings -- I feel no "economic guilt" when I change strings when I want - due to the low price. They are consistent and dependable, and so I've used these Martin strings regularly on my acoustic guitars for the past twenty years.

                    If you are a novice like me (I don't have a band or perform with anyone else usually) this is the go-to guitar string. Easy to string up & if you play/practice every day they last a good couple weeks before they start to lose their tone. I record videos for my friends online & change these strings after I've practiced enough to record the video. They start to get a "TINNY" sound after a while but they certainly do not break easily.
