        Comments about Martin SP 7100 Phosphor Bronze Lifespan Coated Acoustic Strings Light - 2 Pack:

        These strings sound good, and they last on my guitar with a composite fret board. I like Elixirs, and I think that these are comparable. For some reason the composite fret board wears through the bottom side of the Elixirs and they corrode very quickly. I don't know why, but I don't have the same issue with these.

          Sound a bit darker and warmer on my 000. Selected these strings to mellow out what I felt was excessive brightness. Good volume. Don't know how long they will last, but so far so good. Less string noise.

          Comments about Martin SP 7100 Phosphor Bronze Lifespan Coated Acoustic Strings Light - 2 Pack:

          I bought a couple of sets of these a while back when they were on sale. I put one set on one of my guitars when I received them. No issues. They don't last as long as Elixirs, but they are OK if you get them cheap. Tone is good. I wouldn't buy them again. My B string ball end unraveled and popped off inside my guitar on my second set. That can happen with any set of strings but it has never happened to me before and I change strings about twice a week depending on my schedule. I use uncoated strings on one guitar and coated on the other. I have tried just about every brand of coated string made and keep going back to Elixir. Having the whole string sealed makes a difference for me.

              I put on a set of Martin SP7100 strings after using the SP4100's for a while. The 4100's are the strings that came on my Martin and they provided a great sound but they did not last as long as I would have liked. The 7100's sound almost as good and last 3 times longer. They are not quite as bright as the 4100's but for the extra life, they are worth it. The 2 pack was a great deal, plus free shipping, couldn't go wrong.
