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.

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).

    Comments about Martin M530 Phosphor Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I have tried many different brands of strings, from the well known to the most obscure, in pursuit of the best sounding string. The Martin M530 does it for me. They give the brightest sound for the longest time of any string I've tried. Period.

    Both 1st strings (high E strings broke upon stringing the guitar. I am an experienced musician. Would you send me 2 high E 1st strings free? I hope the other strings maintain their strength.

        Comments about Martin M530 Phosphor Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        I thought these light gauge strings would not have the richness of a medium wound string. No way. These strings are clear and full of sound. Rich deep bottom end. I will buy again.

              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
