These strings are my everyday go to players whether I'm preforming or practicing. There's nothing sweeter than a new set of strings and I prefer to change to a new set more often rather than holding out when player the high dollar, longer lasting strings.

I read the good reviews, loved the price and ordered a few sets. But when on my Takamine they thinned out the sound like no other strings I have tried. It was so bad I lost any inspiration to even pick up my guitar. No depth from the 4th, 5th and 6th strings. No sustain. They made my guitar sound terrible. I got over the feeling of wasting a new set and replaced them later the same day. Testing the theory "you get what you pay for" I put on Martin Lifespan SP .013's. MSP7200. The difference is night and day. Tone. Resonance. Fullness. Volume. That's what I wanted. Bottom line: You can buy inexpensive/cheap strings and your guitar will sound that way. Or you can put some money into quality strings and enjoy your guitar at it's best. That's my experience anyway.

            I use them on all my acoustic guitars including my Gibson twelve string.I've been playing guitar for over thirty-five years and have tried all kinds of strings but none of them can match the quality and durability of the Martin Marquis.These strings have a crisp yet soft tone unmatched by any other. They are quick to hold a tune and have a long life. This I find very appealing because I perform a lot.

            Tone on my Martin D-40 is rather tinny. Not up to Martin standards. Very inexpensive, though.

              I have played guitar for 50 years and these strings are very good tonal quality and are affordable to replace often. Its hard to beat the bright tone of new strings. Strings that are played a lot, loose there great tone faster than you would want as a musician.

                  To me it all boils down to personal preference. I've been using these for over two decades. I buy in bulk & change frequently. I always carry an extra set "just in case."
                  Musician's Friend always has them at a fair price. Of course if everyone liked the same thing there wouldn't be any need to have such a wide variety to choose from. I found something I liked and I've stayed with it.
