OVERVIEW

Superior performance, longer life

Rich tone should last as long as the inspiration does. Built on Martin's durable SP core wire, Martin SP Lifespan strings are the next level in studio and stage performance. Now with a more advanced proprietary treatment from America’s legendary guitar builder, SP Lifespan strings repel dirt, grit and other environmental elements that can quickly alter the sound of your strings. All six strings are treated to ensure a longer life. Martin developed a new and advanced method to treat strings, resulting in a process that ensures both the core and wrap are protected from corrosion. The molecular level treatment adds almost no mass to the string, will not flake or peel, and does not alter the vibration pattern like some string coatings can. The high-tensile strength SP core wire resists breakage and holds tunings longer – a perfect match to the treatment in creating a long life string. SP Lifespans are designed to last longer and sound better so you can play on.

FEATURES
  • SP Lifespan acoustic guitar strings

    Comments about Martin MSP7050 SP Lifespan Phosphor BronzeCustom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    This is the first time I tried the Lifespan SP strings. The tone quality is excellent from the high to low pitch strings. I can't rate the longevity yet as I have only had them on my guitar for a couple of weeks, but as of now I am very pleased. The guitar used is a Martin DCPA4. Sounds great.

        Over 40 + years I have tried all kinds of strings. Just in the last 5 years or so I discovered these. They are simply the best for me.

            installed these strings and they sounded bright. two days later while tuning up to pitch the small G string popped and went into my hand. Aside from some light picking, these were the SHORTEST lived strings I have used to date... Dissapointing

              Comments about Martin MSP7050 SP Lifespan Phosphor BronzeCustom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

              Really good sounding strings! You should give them a try at least. Strings have a long lasting bright sound, and that tone lasts longer than Elixer that I also use. I like the smoothness of the Elixers more but the tone of the Martins keeps me coming back to them. The discoloration of your fingertips happens quicker and seems heavier than with the Elixer strings. Custom Light is my preference for finger picking. I think you'll find these good to use in rotation with your current favorite brand.

                Strings seem good but shipping took forever -- not sure why it was routed where it went and why it took so long. Be patient if you order these.

                      Tried switching to these from elixir phosphor bronze nano custom lights, as these were less expensive. The bright tone on the wound strings fades quickly leaving them sounding dead compared to the elixrs. Not sure in the long run these are a better value as you need to change them more often. I will stick with the exlixirs.

                        I bought a Martin OMCPA4 Rosewood that came with Lifespan 12s. The tone was incredible. I fingerpick so I wanted to try the 11s. For me they did not sound nearly as good as the 12s. I'm going back to the 12s for their deep bassy and smooth trebly tone. They are somewhat more challenging to play but I feel I will get used to them. I would recommend them to a friend. Everyone's ear is different. They only way you know if you like them or not is to try them.

                        Hands Down!

                        Comments about Martin MSP7050 SP Lifespan Phosphor BronzeCustom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                        As a life-long musician, I've played nearly every string known to man. I just ran across these ...gave them a try, and On my Guild and my Martin, these strings are hands down my faves!! Yeah...a few bucks more, but they hold their tone very well. I also love the custom 11's. 10's a too light, 12's are a bit too hard after 4 sets. hahahah... I guess that's a bit like Goldilocks, but I love these strings!!! They're justtttt right :-)
