    Comments about Martin Retro Series Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    After trying a number of other strings, I put these on my Gibson J-35 and knew almost immediately that they were the ones. They start off bright, but just as their description says, they quickly mellow to a phenomenal-sounding string. Great note articulation, robust bass, warm sustain. I plan to try them on my other guitars, but they truly bring out the best in this sitka/mahogany dreadnaught.

          These have the sound I have been listening for, for a long, long time. Not too bright, but by no means dull. This is the exact string I've been searching for! Please, Martin, DON'T STOP MAKING THEM!
