Though these strings offer increased playability, what you gain in playabilit you loose in tone. I put these on two guitars. The result was, I lost the tonal quality and developed ratting on the frets that was not present previously. They give about the same feel and sound, you would get by putting steel electric strings on your acoustic. For a beginer they would be great. The playability allows for a very lite touch and string bending on an acoustic. These may be appealing to some guitarist, but the are not for me. I prefer the tone of brass on my guitars.

    Great strings I have used these strings for several years. I like the tone they produce for fingerstyle guitar. Nice mellow tone not bright and tinny. Will use again and again.

    Comments about Martin M1400 Marquis Silk and Steel Custom Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I was looking for strings that didn't feel like cables under my fingers. I'm primarily an electric player used to playing on 10s and these strings are just perfect. The strings feel great and don't fill my hand.

              Was using M130 silk and steel then noticed my bridge pin area was wearing so I changed to these. Hope they make the bridge area last longer. Great sound. Easy to play too.

                    I host a cowboy music show. I have used these strings for over 50 years. Change them about once every 2 months. Everyone loves the sound of my old Martin. I've tried other strings, but these work for me..Since they changed the name

                    Comments about Martin M1400 Marquis Silk and Steel Custom Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                    I recently got a Loar LO-216. The guitar needed a setup, which I can do myself and part of that was to change strings. Although 12-50 strings are recommended, I used these which are lighter gauge.
                    After breaking them in, they have mellowed and made the action a bit lower and easier to play. I can't comment on longevity, since they've only been on for a week, but these are great strings for this guitar.
