OVERVIEW

Martin SP Lifespan acoustic guitar strings are treated with Cleartone proprietary technology to bring you the longest possible string life without sacrificing tone or natural feel.

Martin SP Lifespan strings are designed to repel the oils and dirt that can deaden strings. All six strings are treated to preserve the natural Martin SP sound and feel that players prefer.

80/20 Bronze is popular string material for stage and studio performance due to its brilliant tone out of the box. The tone will mellow quickly into a warm sound.

MSP6050 strings are recommended for lead rock style.

Martin SP Lifespan acoustic guitar strings are used by Martin on the majority of its production guitars. Martin SP Lifespan with Cleartone proprietary technology provides a rich full tone with the added benefit of longer life. The Martin SP Lifespan acoustic guitar strings start with ultra-pure steel SP core wire, which delivers a perfect combination of tensile strength and response. Bronze electroplating is added to protect and enhance the core wire, which is complemented by the wraps that bring the full, rich tone players demand. Finally, Martins custom wrapping technique ensures tight tolerances to gauge and tension. Martin SP sets are sent to Everly Music for treatment with Cleartone proprietary technology. This treatment provides the thinnest protection in the industry and does not flake or peel. The treatment protects both the wrap and core wire by repelling dirt and grime that can deaden a string. Wrap windings remain open and uncovered to permit natural vibration patterns. The Cleartone proprietary technology preserves and protects the natural rich full tone of the Martin SP strings.

Superior performance, longer life

      I just got 2 sets of these which I put on both of my Fender Acoustics and they sound much better than the over priced Elixirs. Plus they last just as long ! Now I have to go and get some more now for both, my Epiphone DR-100 and Mitchell MD-100 as well. I finally found the strings I need for my acoustics. Sure they're a tad pricier than regular strings but, they're worth it !

          Great strings. I guess my only compliant, and its not really a compliant as much as a preference, is that they are still heavy on the squeaks sliding down the strings. I think that's the only advantage the elixirs have but these strings are stronger, more consistent and don't go dead as fast as the elixirs.

          Comments about Martin MSP6050 SP Lifespan 80/20 Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          I've always been a Martin strings fan, thought I'd try these cleartone coated Martins. They really made my acoustics louder. They are not slippery like Elixers nor do they feel like normal strings. I would have to say more like nickle plated, even unwound. Maybe I just need to break them in and get used to them. I bought 4 sets so I'm good until I get the itch to buy some more strings. There is nothing wrong with them, they are just not for me.

          Best for a Martin guitar

          By 

          from Ohio

          Comments about Martin MSP6050 SP Lifespan 80/20 Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          There is just something about Martin guitars with Martin strings. The strings are a very important component of the Martin sound. I have tried Elixers on my Martin HD-28 but they are just to bright and tinny on my Martin. Don't get me wrong, I use Elixers on my Alvarez 12 string and '70's Ovation 6 string but not the Martin.I had Elixer's on my Martin for less than 24 hours. I cut them off the next day. Too bright and tinny. These Martin/Cleartones are perfect for a Martin. Brighter than standard SP's but still captures the deep dark tones and they work even better than the regular SP's for recording.
