So many years, so many brand and types of strings. After the Elixirs, the SPs, the Cleartones, I decided I wanted strings that sounded like they did back in the 60-70s. These are the ones. I use them on my Martin D35 and my Gibson J50 and they deliver that thumping bass that is lacking in these coated strings -- that do last, but with no real tone.... These were my choice when I bought my first Martin D28 in 1972, and they are my choice now.

I probably wouldn't bother reviewing these strings, but since MF sent me an email asking for a review, I guess I'll do my part.
Actually, that makes a good point about these strings. They're pretty much unremarkable.
They sound okay, but there's not any special tone or projection from them. They play okay, but they're not especially smooth or fast or easy. They're decent strings.
It's nice that they have the silk winding near the bridge end to (maybe) protect the wood from being scratched, but honestly, I've never had any issue with my guitar being damaged by other strings, so...
The price point is nice, and these Marquis strings are definitely playable, but if you're looking for strings that actually have a *personality*, you can find it elsewhere.
I've been performing an experiment since I got my newest guitar about a year ago(I won't brag, but it's a nice guitar!) to find out what strings perform the best for me and my instrument. I've tried many, many sets of strings, and so far, my faves are the old standby, Martin SP Light gauge MSP4100. I also like the Martin FX Flexible Core strings for their playability, but I do find the sound of those is a bit lacking (trade off for the flexibility, I suppose) and they are also somewhat inconsistent between sets.
But not to get off-topic. :)
Of course, strings choice is as personal a thing as musical style, and preferred instrument...so give them a try, maybe you'll think they're awesome!
But if you're looking for suggestions, try the other two strings I mentioned and see what you think!
Thanks for reading!

    Comments about Martin M2100 Marquis Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I have used several varieties of Martin strings. I have been satisfied with all of them. Except for the Retro Monel strings, I can't tell much difference between the different sets. These have a cloth wrap at the ball end for extra bridge protection on valuable instruments. Other than that, they are Martin's basic acoustic set. These just happened to be on sale the day I ordered.

    Full bodied sound, capturing shimmering highs and mellow bass tones. I will continue to use these strings on my D-45.

            Like these strings on my late 70's Epiphone/Gibson EJ200sce. They have good tone and last a long time between changes.

              Great strings, they are all i've used on my 1992 Martin HJ-28 since new. I especially like the silk wrapping on the bridge end.

                  I have been using these strings for many years. I've tried almost every other brand that I can think of and none are any better than the Martin Maquis. The sound is very balanced and strong. And they sound just as good on any brand of instrument that I have tried them on.
