    Martin strings have always been my favorite. If you like strings that make your guitar ring you will like these strings.

        Have used these strings for several years and always appreciate the tone and life they yield. I am a practicing bluegrass musician and have never had a break on stage. Also a great price from a company that offers excellent service and delivery times. Thanks Musicians Friend.

        We use these strings & the Martin FX740's on our acoustic guitars. They sound good & not expensive for working musicians.

              I would never use anything but Martin strings. I get the best performance from them. Why change?

                    I am a beginner and traded for a really banged up guitar. I replaced the strings and these made the guitar sould bright and open (more range)

                    On my Taylor --- now

                    By Barista Brian

                    from Hawaii

                    Comments about Martin M540 Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                    Great-sounding and not very expensive. Don't last as long as *coated* strings. No surprise, there. Last longer than most *uncoated* strings. YMMV.I have picky ears (128 kbs music files sound like crap to *my* ears) and can *hear* the quality of *any* guitar string degrade substantially after just a day or two of playing. Again, YMMV, and I must add that my hands have "toxic" perspiration. Really.But, any way, I have these on my Taylor 814ce and I love them. About a week old, though and ready to be changed already. Again, *I* can hear the difference. *Maybe* you won't. If not, these will be an even *better* buy.

                    Great strings - !

                    By Russ M.

                    from Rochester, NY

                    Comments about Martin M540 Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                    Martin M-540 Phosphor Bronze Light Gauge Strings are very fine. I learned to tune the wound strings to pitch before cutting off the excess, and this prolongs the life and tone quite a bit. The sound is crisp and warm. My only slight regret is that the low A is a 42 gauge, which is a bit thin sounding. But, as a set, they are very fine.
