        Comments about Martin M190 12-String 80/20 Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        I like to use Martin strings on all of my acoustic guitars. They hold up just fine for me when I'm practicing, and I really beat on my guitars. I always put on a new set before every gig and after I stretch them out I never have a problem with them going out of tune or breaking. Of course that also has a lot to do with the guitar. String up your 12 string with these. For the price you can't go wrong.

        Light strings always tune well open but bend out of tone easily
        But they are easy on 12 string neck

          Comments about Martin M190 12-String 80/20 Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          I own a 12-string Seagull acoustic guitar which I bought used over 22 years ago. I just bought these strings to experiment with lower tunings on the "old bird." I formerly used extra-light gauge strings (.010" to .047"), but those started to buzz and flop like rubber bands when detuning to C#.

          These "light" gauge strings (.012" to .054") definitely solved the "rubber band" problem when tuning down to C! The Seagull now has quite a "growl" with this tuning. Even with a capo on the 1st fret to achieve the C# that I wanted, the "growl" is still there; yet the strings are relaxed enough so that I can play barre chords without excessive force. Plus, the price was very reasonable, especially since I bought these strings for experimentation.

          I would recommend these strings to anyone considering lower tunings on an acoustic 12-string guitar. I would NOT recommend these strings for anything close to standard pitch.

            Comments about Martin M190 12-String 80/20 Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

            On a 12 string guitar, I just found these .12's too heavy. It was hard to hold the chords down, it bowed the neck on my 1970's Fender 12 string. My fault, I just ordered these because they were cheap. I will stick to .10's for my 12 string
