      OK, I play strictly fingerstyle on higher end, 00-sized, mahogany guitars (Santa Cruz, Dana Bourgeois). I've tried Elixir coated strings (lifeless, dull, restrained) and various brands of Phospher Bronze strings (too metallic and biting). I keep coming back to these Martin 80/20 SP's. They have a very natural, rounded sound--albeit, a little bright for the first hour, or so. IMHO: Go with PB's on Rosewoods, especially if you're flatpicking a dreadnought. Stay away from coated strings (at least Elixers). They simply have no life in them.

      I including these strings in my search for a good string set that I could put on my acoustic guitars as well as guitars I have for sale or that have come in for repairs. They are superb in many ways and they allow me to set-up, measure and tune acoustic guitars very well. I don't like the way these strings come double packed in pairs or that there not sold individually - which would allow someone to more precisley or "mathematically" string a guitar. However... Once your through with all that and it's time to play the guitar, they sound excellent. They bring out a guitars best tonal qualities. The trade-off is difficult chord fingering. I can't play well with these strings and I seem to drop my pick a lot. I went to a thin pick and then to the thinnest pick I could find. I found myself wanting to get the lightest gauge set in the "SP" series and sacrifice everything, simply to be able to strum and make open chords. I'm not sure? I'm undecided on this "SP" set? It's as if the instruments and love them but the players don't.

          Martin SP strings are good strings and they cost less than many other brands. They have good tone and seem to last about as long as most others. For the price they are a great buy.

                Comments about Martin MSP3100 SP 80/20 Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                I use SP's on all but one of my acoustics. That box get Silk and Bronze for a special flavor. Otherwise SP's are my only choice.
                They are what they should be...Bright crisp and long lasting tone.
                NEVER broke one in the at least 15 years I'd guess i've been using.
                They may not out last the coated strings out there but I've tried every new brand that have gone coated... even Martin's and I come back. Price to tone life I think is much better with SP's.

                These Strings on a rosewood OM

                By Anonymous

                from Undisclosed

                Comments about Martin MSP3100 SP 80/20 Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                Well i have to start by saying that i like to change strings every 3 weeks on any guitar i am continuously playing. That being said, i just i had received a custom made rosewood OM by a local luthier, 100 % and everything. The guitar sounded good for a new guitar! One thing that bothered me is that the volume was a little low. The luthier had put d'addario D'Addario EJ11's in the 12 gage, and i simply found that they didn't exactly sound so good. The bass on those strings lacked volume and clarity, and i knew it couldnt be the guitar!So 6 days into the existence of the guitar i got these strings, and for the first hour they sounded to new, so i waited a few hours, and tuned, stretched and played the guitar. Right away i noticed the difference, its been a few days now and my strings still sound clear and fresh!! i'm sticking to these for this guitar thats for sure!

                Replaced a very old set of Martin Bluegrass med ga strings on my '72 blond Guild with these Martin msp3100's light gauge and wish I'd left the old ones on. It's not that they have a more mellow sound, These are absolutely lifeless. There is no tone to them. By the way the "SP" does not mean Studio Performance as the MF advertising suggests, it stands for "Sustained Playability" according to the text on the box these came in....which makes sense since you won't ever want to play them.

                I recently purchased an Ibanez PF5 ecent used and I was pleased with it except for the strings. They were worn and rusty. I Found the guitar to still have a good quality of sound but lacked any real punch and sparkle. So I purchased a set of these for it. I really can't believe the difference a set of strings can make. I turned my inexpensive laminate top guitar into a real ear turner. The volume increased , the tonality really came alive and crispness of the chords really began to sparkle. I would not be afraid to tell anyone wanting to improve their sound to get these strings, I even bought a set of 12 strings for my Seagull, can't wait to put them on.

                Comments about Martin MSP3100 SP 80/20 Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                Yesterday I swapped a pair of these onto my acoustic in place of almost year old Elixr's. I'm very dissapointed.The old, crumbling Elixr's have at least 3 times the brightness to them. These lack the sinature, new acoustic string brightness. Yes, they are at a decent price. Yes, they are really easily put on. But honestly, why not pay 9 bucks more and get Elixr's and have them last at least 4 months LONGER without showing almost any wear, and have a better tone?
