    They didn't have the Elixer Nanoweb custom lights in stock so I bought these instead. When I first put them on I strummed my taylor 410 and went "wow". I was excited because I was hoping I had found strings cheaper than Elixer with equal quality. I got my answer a few hours later. Without even having played the guitar, the strings had already lost tone. These strings are not good at all. They don't hold in tune well at all, a simple bend will take you out of tune and they lose all their tone VERY fast. Elixer is the way to go still. Pay the extra bucks and you will get brighter strings that hold their tone MUCH longer and stay in tune VERY well.

      Martin Strings on my Martin Guitars just feel right! Quality and sound to complement my HD-28 and Custom 000-28. Light enough to play with ease... Heavy enough so there is no string buzz.

            These strings are great. I only use the phosphorous bronze.They record well, they sound awesome in a live concert. They have great tone that lasts for months. They start to harden up after six months, so I change them out. When I used coated strings in the past I would change them out also in six months, so I save some money.

              I have been using these for years. They start off very bright, but warm up quickly. I have never had a problem with them staying in tune. In my honest opinion, they are a good string with a very good tone after the initial break-in.

                This string for the everyone, I believe is the best bet out there. They sound exellent, last long, and are very easy on the fingers. I have yet to break one during 2 to 5 hours of non- stop playing. I have been buying this string for the past 2 years, and really stand on what I am saying. I have in the past, bought all the expensive brands, but with inflation bought this one, and have never returned to high cost ones. Buy it! You will Like It!

                  long lasting brightness. perfect gauge if you have a firm grip on the neck like i do. I've been running martin strings for several years and recently tried a set of john pearse but the brightness just wasnt there so I back to the martin custom lights.
