Superior performance, longer life.

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.

Phosphor Bronze strings are bright, but slightly warmer sound than 80/20 bronze when first put on the guitar. They offer consistent tone over time. Phosphor bronze has a copper/tin alloy, making them sound brighter than regular bronze strings.

MSP7200 strings are recommended for rhythm rock, jazz, blues and folk styles.

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, Martin’s 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.

    I believe thier the best strings I've ever used.I'm breaking in a new martin guitar with these strings. Three weeks i've strummed and picked very hard for two or three hours a day,sometimes more.These strings still sound wonderful,what a great coated string.How could they possibly be better.

        Comments about Martin SP 7200 Phosphor Bronze Lifespan Coated Acoustic Strings Medium:

        Mostly played Elixers on my guitar but decided to try these for the price difference and since I had never tried phosphor bronze strings before. I must say that as soon as they were on and I played the first few chords I was blown away. Amazing warm tone that has great resonance. Can't wait for my fingers to get used to the mediums as these r my first with them too. For the price I say go for them. Not sure yet if they last as long as my Elixers as I have only had them for a short while.

          Comments about Martin SP 7200 Phosphor Bronze Lifespan Coated Acoustic Strings Medium:

          You might pay a little more for these strings but they are woryh it when your playing with a groupe and you don't have to be continualy tuning due to change in atmosphere conditions. They hold their tone a lot longer so you don't have to change them as often.I have used them on my Martin HD35 since I bought it. Tried others but was sorry later and went back to tried and true.

            Martin Life Span strings have demonstrated the same tone and resonance, if not better, than Martin standard phosphor-bronze stings in my comparison tests and they continue to perform at that level for weeks of continuous play.
