          Great product. Have been using for years. Bright sound. Easy on the fingers. Unfortunately, Musician's Friend has a lousy shipping method. Box arrived crushed and strings were bent.

            Comments about Martin M200 12-String Acoustic Folk Guitar Silk and Steel Round Wound Strings:

            I have always been impressed with the rich, mellow tone of these strings. When recording there is no problem keeping the dynamic range within a nice parameter (without any "jingley" highs or muddy bottom). For thier value and quality, you can't beat them!

              Comments about Martin M200 12-String Acoustic Folk Guitar Silk and Steel Round Wound Strings:

              I have played 12-string guitars for many years, using phosphor bronze strings. In recent years I had gotten away from playing my 12-string much because the sound was just too bright and tinny. I decided to try these silk and steel strings on my Fender 12-string guitar and I absolutely love them! It now has a much warmer, sweet, mellow tone. I have fallen in love with my 12-string guitar all over again and find myself really enjoying playing it a lot more. Silk and steel will be my choice from now on!

                  If you look at the string gauges, you'll notice that the differences between the main strings and the octave strings are just a bit closer to each other than on something more conventional like the Martin MSP4600s, which I've also used and liked. Along with those gauge differences, the main difference is with the high E pair: 11.5s instead of the 10s on the 4600s. So, with all of that and the difference in the material (silk & steel vs. PB), I think the sound is a bit more compressed and less "jangly" than the 4600s. The phrase that came to me (and my ears) is that I hear "more of the guitar and less of the strings"—which, as with all things guitar, will be really right or really wrong for you.

                    These strings are the ones I used most frequently on my Fishman-equipped Martin D12-1 (12-string) after I bought it new in 1996. The silk and steel helps with ease of playing, a definite asset when playing barre chords on a 12-string in standard tuning. The strings yield a sweet, mellow tone which impressed my sound guy who was initially skeptical about 12-strings. These strings have been a trusted friend for years.

                        Yes! Mellow! My 12 string Tak never sounded so good! It's a G-335 made in '81. Blows the Martin D1228 away! Especially when you consider the price.

                        I've tried many strings over the years on my acoustic 12's and I still remember the 1st time using these Martins! They tuned up quick, easy and stayed that way! The sound and volume, whether finger-pickin' or straight, is superb. I really enjoy their feel; they're smooth and soft on the fingers and provide the right amount of tone-mix. I've yet to have one break and I have had a set on one of my guitars for over 6 months (that I play daily). Get a couple of sets right off - you'll be happy with um'....guaranteed!

                        Gives great depth to the 12 string - deeper, richer tone. They won't last as long, but worth it for the sound.

                        Simply the best

                        Comments about Martin M200 12-String Acoustic Folk Guitar Silk and Steel Round Wound Strings:

                        I have played a custom-made Bozo 12-string for over 30 years. I put a Fishman active bridge pickup in it to take it public after a few years of hoarding it to myself. I've played a lot of places in the last 30 years, and it is very common for people to comment on the incredible sound of my guitar. I've used Martin Silk & Steel strings exclusively on this guitar because I find the soft side of the dynamic range and clarity impossible to match with all-metal strings. I typically use finger picks and love to highlight the the high string in the octave pairs with my thumb pick on gentler material. When volume is needed, though, these strings can put it out full and rich. If you've never experienced the verstility of silk & steel on a 12 string, you really are missing something.
