    Comments about Martin M535 Traditional Phosphor Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    After trying dozens of different brands of strings I keep coming back to Martin phosphor bronze custom lights. They have a very good balance of playability and warmth and I find the bass to be a bit deeper with these Martin M535 Traditional Phosphor Bronze strings than with the SP MSP4050's.

    From a pure tone point of view, at least on my Martin D-28, I think the Martin Marquis Lights sound the best overall. Very deep bass and sweet, not shrill highs, but (after 30 years of trying) I just can't seem to play the .012's as well as the .011's.

    So for now (until Marquis PB become available in .011's) I find the Martin Traditional M535 the very best strings for me.

    Hope this helps in your decision making process! :)

    Comments about Martin M535 Traditional Phosphor Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I prefer Custom Lights as lights are too heavy and extra lights break easier and do not last long.

    These are fantastic strings for the type with a long life, consistent tone and much stronger than extra lights.

    If you intend to use these for recording, you need effects and other equipment to tighten up the tones. Other Phospher Bronze strings are cheaper, but do not have the longer lasting tone quality as these do.

        Comments about Martin M535 Traditional Phosphor Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        After using Fender's 12-52 on my Squier SA-100 for the last 3 months , I needed a change because while they sounded good, I found myself changing sets every 4-5 days which was costing me money. I ended up buying a 6 pack of these Martins which came in last week and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of them. They have just the right amount of highs and bass for my guitar and excellent sustain as well. Plus they're long lasting and stay in tune as well. I do believe I've found my string of choice and plan on staying with these from now on.

          These are great strings. Good tone and I like them for the ease of string bending. Excellent for finger picking. I used to use the Martin 140's but since I changed to these they are are my Go To strings.
          Listen UP.

              Comments about Martin M535 Traditional Phosphor Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

              Great strings for a great price. They sound wonderful.
              I was recently given a Pete Townshend signature J200 that desperately required new strings. This being my first high dollar acoustic guitar, I wanted it to sound and play great. I chose Martin M535 Traditional Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Strings because of the Martin reputation and price. I was not disappointed. They are crisp on the high end, yet deliver the bass sound I was looking for. Highly recommended. I'll buy them again!

              Bill
              The sound is just what I was looking for... and what I got.
              These are the first "true acoustic" strings I've ever purchased.
