Get the long-lasting Marquis tone.
Martin SP Marquis acoustic guitar strings are designed for maximum tone and longevity. Ultrahigh tensile strength cores resist breaking. Acoustic bronze finish provides greater string life. The silk wrapping on the end is not only a traditional symbol of quality, but provides tighter seating of the string at the bridge pin and helps reduce wear on bridges and bridgeplates.

I used to used these exclusively on my OM for fingerstyle, but put them on my JC16RE and found that they actually sounded better than the d'Addario's (EXP16) that I had been using as my standard. I get nearly the same life out of them for half the price. Plus I really like the silk wrapping at the ball end, which supposedly keeps the string from gouging the bridge.I can play fingerstyle pieces with these as well as flatpicking and outright strumming and the tone is very satisfying. I play every week as worship leader at my church and these really hold up. I've never broken one string, unlike Elixers, which used to break all the time on my Taylor.Time to order a bunch more...
These strings so far have been the best Martins I have ever used. They last longer, sound better and produce day after day. I use my guitars all the time, playing for the classes I give, playing at home, playing at church, etc. These strings so far have been better than anything else I have ever tried. If you play less than I do, these strings will amaze you at how long they will last!!
I found these strings to be outstanding! I've tried several different brands of accoustic strings, finally settling on Martin. On my Taylor 110E, these strings held their tone forever, and I changed them before ever having broke one. That's never happened with other strings I've used. I usually use Martin M140's, but after trying these, I've found a new standby. They're well worth the extra $, as they have twice as much tone and life in them. These strings last!
Gotta give credit where it's due. Compared to all the other strings I've tried, including other types of Martins, it's not even close. The tone, longevity and tuning stability are exceptional. They have a very easy feel to them and I like the bronzing of the plain strings, as well as the silk on the ball ends. They cost a little more than the average phosphors but are definitely worth it.
lasts long - keeps tone colour - doesn't break - excellent product -
why isn't it available any more?
- Was this a gift?:
Nothing will make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, but if you have a decent guitar you will see a pleasant difference in tone and sustain. Rings without the twang. Very nice strings.
They ring, they last, they are consistantly exceptional.
They aren't the cheapest on the shelf, but places like Musician's Friend make them well affordable even if you change often. Already had one set on for two weeks longer than the old brand and they're still ringing nice and long.
I tried many other strings for my d-18 and have found the one I will always use on my flat tops. They last a week or more depending on amount of play, and still retain the ring.
Even after the strings have been on my guitars (Guild F-40 Valencia and Taylor GS5) longer than one would typically leave a set on, they still sound great.
For the price, quality, great sound and less often string changes, you can't go wrong.
I highly recommend you try a set. I think you would agree.
Bronze string coating provides longer string life.
Silk wrapped ends protects your bridgeplate from wear.
I've tried many different name brands and gauges and have found that these Martin SP Marquis Phosphor Bronze Light (.012 - .054) strings outlast and outplay them all. I have rarely (if ever, that I can remember) broken one before they needed changing.
The price is comparable to, or in many cases less than similar types, but they outlast all of the others that I have used.
