    I have been purchasing Martin MSP 4200 Acoustic Guitar Strings for 15 years now. I have found these strings to be very resilient, and long lasting (which is what they are designed for). My playing style is very agressive, therefore, I must use strings that are high quality and resist breakage. Honestly, I have tried other brands (of all price ranges and quality standards) and find that most are a waste of money, for my particular needs. The longevity charactoristics of the Martin SP line of strings allows for agressive playing, and prolonged string life. Not only do these strings resist breakage, but their superior alloy composition assures their ability to hold their tone longer than any other brand I've used over the years. I hope that this comment does not sound like a "commercial for Martin SP Strings". I am a real musician, have used these strings for many years now, and do not buy any other brand for my guitars. To keep the cost low (these are high-end strings), I purchase these strings by the case (packages of 12 sets) which allows a savings of 40% as compared to retail prices. On average, I purchase at least one case per month, for my own needs. For the musician that plays with an agressive style, or is simply looking for extended life and performance from a set of strings, this product is the best value I have found. -Marshall

    A friend of mine introduced these to me and I have not had another string that sounds good and is dependable as these SP's. Those who have heard my guitar (a higher end Guild accoustical 6) thought I was playing an expensive Taylor or Martin. I get great high and lows and when playing in a solo, a great fill. I am definitely a SP fan !

        Comments about Martin MSP4200 Phosphor Bronze Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        Switched to these from my light SPs to play DADGAD. Harmonics shine and if set up right, not muddy in the low end. Definitely tighter tension which is good for drop tuning. Can't beat the price. Go SPs over Elixer for faster break in and woodier tone.

          all the warmth of phosphor bronze, but yet plenty of sizzle. More highs than some coated strings.

            Comments about Martin MSP4200 Phosphor Bronze Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings:

            These are excellent strings. I usually buy them by the dozens as I am a luthier, building and repairing guitars. Every new build leaves the shop with a set of Martin SP strings, whether it be medium or light guage strings, And many repair jobs leave the shop with Martin SP's as well unless the customer request a different string. I have used Martin strings for over 35 years. I've tried everything on the market but always go back to Martin strings, now being the Martin SP, whether Bronze which has a warmer, less boomy sound or the Phosphor Bronze which is a Brighter, punchier, wanta be heard string. Also very few string breaks!! And 2 sets are cheaper than 1 set of Eli**ers and sound and last as long . Pickin' a lot of Bluegrass,Country and Southern Gospel,,, you'll soon find out what works.

              While I use 13s on my other 6-string acoustic guitars the smaller acoustics need a bigger punch. The SP series are my favorite strings and the Mediums work great on my Taylor GS-Mini...great stings for an amazing intrument.

                  Comments about Martin MSP4200 Phosphor Bronze Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                  These are the only acoustic guitar strings that I use now. I absolutely love them!
                  The only downside is that the high E string breaks kind of easily, but that's probably just me!
                  These have a beautiful, natural-sounding tone to them and are very easy to play. I use them on my 1978 Yamaha and they make the guitar sound brand new.
                  I use these for anything from backup and practicing to recording and playing live. You can't go wrong with these!

                      from Carroll, Iowa

                      Comments about Martin MSP4200 Phosphor Bronze Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                      Great value overall
                      I've only used one set so far but already I like the quality of the sound and their durability. I don't have a budget to change strings every week so I need them to maintain their brightness and not break after repeated use. So far these have met both expectations. As a result I just purchased 2 more sets. They seem to do as well as, or better, than some more expensive coated strings I tried the past year. I didn't give these the hightest rating because I've not used them that long but my experience is positive..
