It would be hard to go on and praise a set of guitar strings, but I can tell you this. I have been using Martins on my acoustics for quite a few years and am always satisfied with the quality, longevity, and good tones…..I recently bought an old 1967 Framus Texan model 5/296 12 string. A nice guitar, but it hasn't seen any lovin' in a long, long time…..I had to glue a few things set the neck and bridge saddle… When I was ready for some strings, I choose the Martin 10's. A light gage string is always recommended on a 12 string of this age, because of the tension on the neck…… I ordered a couple of sets (one for now, one for later) and strung and tuned the Guitar …..Very mellow-

sounding Guitar, especially with the Martins……. I will always use martins on my acoustics…. I'm the kind of guy that likes to stick with a plan that works...

These strings were alright on my Mitchell 12-string, but as soon as I went to tune up the high octave G string, the string snapped and simply could not attain the G tone. I think they used too high a gauge for this string, since it was the same as the high E string (.01 inches). I bought a set of Ernie Ball Singles of .009 inches and strung one on, and it worked fabulously. I guess it's just that little difference that makes it. Other that this mishap, the strings are fine and I expect them to last a while. However, I plan on buying D'Addarios next time to see if all of their string will work.

          Comments about Martin M180 12-String 80/20 Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          For years I have used only light gauge silk & steel stings on my 12-string. With only one choice for those I decided to try these extra-light bronze stings and I have been very happy with the sound. I have tried phosphor bronze in the past and did not like the sound -- these are completely different!

          I started using Martin string a few years ago just to check them out and found they have a very good string and don't try to break you when you pay for them.

            These strings are a good low end product. They will last for 8 to 12 hours of really intense play time of hard licks and pickin'. They produce great volume on my 12 string and ring beautifully throughout the frequency range.. I have used these strings for several years and seldom break one. They represent the Martin name very well and are good sound for the money spent!

              These strings were alright on my Mitchell 12-string, but as soon as I went to tune up the high octave G string, the string snapped and simply could not attain the G tone. I think they used too high a gauge for this string, since it was the same as the high E string (.01 inches). I bought a set of Ernie Ball Singles of .009 inches and strung one on, and it worked fabulously. I guess it's just that little difference that makes it.
