    These strings are great! I have a Alvarez 5020S from the early nineties. I replace the badly worn out saddle with a tusq saddle and with Martin's medium .013-.056 strings. I was not happy with the sound and the feel and tone of the strings. I lowered the string action on the saddle and replace the strings with Martin's Extra light .010-.047, WOW! what a difference. A deep rich tone, bass and treble and awesome harmonics and fuzz free. I will use these strings again. I'm very happy and satisfied with the quality, response and brilliance these strings delivered.

    I used to use these on my Martin D15 (spruce top). I was playing out every week during the summers and changed strings before each gig - I only had a string break once during a show. When not changed weekly, I had g strings break, unravel really, at the bridge. I used 400 grit sandpaper on the bridge but the problem persisted. I switched to similarly gauged GHS and have had no problems. I used to buy them in quantity at a time and may have had a bad batch, but if you have this problem, it may not be your guitar. The low rating is not due to the sound, but problems I had with them.

                I have been using Martin Strings for dozens of years and year in and year out their performance has been consistent. They sound great and last a long time for me (and I beat up my strings pretty badly...) Whether I'm recording, performing or just practicing, Martin Strings are the most reliable band-mates I have ever had!

                      When they did the set up on my D-28, I let them choose the strings. Brought the guitar home, played it and immediately replaced the strings with these.

                      Now it's right.

                      BTW : Lightning fast deliver and great price

                      After trying many, many different brands I finally settled on the Martin Phosphor Bronze Extra Light strings for my acoustic needs. The gauges for each individual string is perfect for my playing style, which is mostly blues and original music. Bright sounding, long lasting, awesomely priced (from Musician's Friend) and made by Martin. These will be my strings of choice for years to come.

                        These are good entry level strings or an emergency back up with a dinky price tag. They work well, no complaints, but most people would prefer D'Addario, DK or Ernie Ball I believe (for a little more).
