Dependable, Toneful Guitar Strings

This is my "go-to" acoustic guitar string set. Its sound and tone is delightful to me: crisp, sharp and shiny on a guitar with bone nut & saddle.
My play style wears severely on strings because of bending and use of much vibrato across the frets. I have used more-expensive coated strings, but these Martins sound better and they last about as long as coated strings, due to string-wear at the frets; thus, the Martins are a great value in guitar strings.
Rarely have I broken a string in this set. (With coated strings, one string per set seemed to be my pattern of breakage.) Because of the low cost of this dependable string set, I enjoy its consistent great tone on my acoustic guitar at a fine price, and rarely have I broken a string. Now I joyfully look forward to changing strings on my acoustic guitar!

I love these strings. They sound great, they have a great feel on the fingers. They aren't the sturdiest, so lighten your hands up, or better yet, chuck your picks like a real guitarist. They don't keep their brightness more than a week, so change them often. At these prices you can afford to do that.

      dissapointed

      By Acoustic Idiot

      from San Francisco CA

      Comments about Martin M540 Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Strings 10-Pack:

      I have only bought one set of martin strings in my life and was dissapointed. small E string snapped BEFORE it was even tuned up. I thought I'd try something different for a change, but now I seriously doubt I'll ever go back to martin strings unless they miraculously do somethin big in the future. I'd rather spend 15bux on strings that last more than a tuning

      Comments about Martin M540 Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Strings 10-Pack:

      I bought a 10-pack last year and am pleased with the sound and quality. These light strings are easier on the finger tips and I disperse them to my students.

      Great on any guitar

      By prazguy

      from illinois

      Comments about Martin M540 Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Strings 10-Pack:

      The Martin m540 is the only acoustic guitar string I will use. I play in my church worship band so I play minimum of twice a week (usually about 4-5 hours a week). These strings hold up very well, In the three years I have been playing this guitar with these strings I have broken only two strings. After about three weeks of playing I do change them as they begin to sound less bright. I have played Elixir strings on this guitar and I can't tell that they retain the "new sound" any longer than the martin 540's. You simply can't find a better string at any price.

      May be better than light Martin SPs

      By steelpig

      from Rough & Ready, CA

      Comments about Martin M540 Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Strings 10-Pack:

      If these Martin Strings last longer than the SPs, and come in a 10-pack, I might as well stick to these, besides the Medium gauge string sets.

      Fantastic

      By Chimera

      from Colchester, CT

      Comments about Martin M540 Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Strings 10-Pack:

      I play a Gibson Hummingbird and I've tried numerous brands of strings over the last 7 years, but any store I go to, it's gotta be Martin Lights. Some people complain about strings going "dead" yeah, well, these don't. When you first put them on, they sound beautiful and crisp, and after a few months of playing they are a little less striking, but the sweet, sweet sound doesn't go away. I've had a set of Elixir nanowebs on my guitar and they didn't last as long, nor did they sound as good. Indubitably, the best.

      Great Strings!!!

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Martin M540 Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Strings 10-Pack:

      This is an overall great string pack! I got it at a lower price than it says here and they still worked great! The only bad part is it snapped when I was putting it on, but that was my fault (I let the string go in such a weird angle when it was loose, that the steel on the inside cracked, but otherwise this is a GREAT GUITAR STRING!!!

      An amazing deal

      By Cheagan

      from Palm Springs

      Comments about Martin M540 Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Strings 10-Pack:

      I have used these strings ever since I saw the price tag a few years ago, trying to save a buck. The tone lasts a long time, and even if you go long periods without playing, you can still come back to a good-sounding set. I play a lot of first position chords and open tunings, and (maybe it's my guitar, but) people never fail to comment on how good it sounds. Try a set of these, and you'll wonder why you've been paying so much.
