I have used these strings since they were introduced and have found them to be consistently accurate in quality and tone... even when I try out other strings... I always come back to SP's because as I said... they are "Tried... Tested and True" and the best value for your out there... Martin Acoustic SP... Phosphor Bronze Custom Lights...(MSP4050)

I bought these because my local store was out of Daddario EXP 26 strings that I am using. I was using Elixir Custom Lights before that, but I changed to EXP 26 since the G string of the Elixirs was constantly breaking. Comparing this set of Martin MSP4050s with the coated strings I used previously, I found that the Martin strings were the hardest to play with very high tension (hard to bend) and they were also very painful to slide your finger across. Sound-wise they are really good and warm sounding and they get brighter the harder you pick the strings which feels very responsive. Although I haven't used these for long, the Martins feel more durable than the Elixirs but I am expecting some degradation in sound over time since these are not coated. Due to the extremely low playability which I wouldn't expect from a .011 set I found these to be of little use to me. But if you don't use full note bends or slides a lot then you may benefit from the beautiful sound of the strings.

                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.
