opps I put what I meant to say here in the rating section
These are my final choice for my Taylor 314ce. I also have a Takamine eg340c and a Johnson jd16 that they are on. I've been through tons of brands in my quest to find just the right string. D's, reds, cleartone, dean markley, elixr, black diamonds, earth tones, the list goes on. The Taylor came with elixr on and no doubt they sound awesome but they can get expensive to replace and there is almost no slide noise from the fingers. Some might not agree but I think there is just something sexy about that sound, puts emphasis on your movements. That being said all I can say is I love these strings. They sound amazing on the Taylor. They don't "drag" your fingers at all. They stay sounding just the same when I go to take them off as they did when I put them on. The sound does not dull within the time frame I leave them on. Which is generally not longer than 2 weeks for a set. A good way to describe the sound to my ears is they are bright but very very crisp, not harsh but crisp. The B string is not as overly noticeable as with other strings. All 6 strings seem to blend well to make a balanced tone. At 5 bucks a set it's not going to hurt to give these a try!

These strings have a strange squeekiness on the top 4 strings(the wound ones). It's been there ever since I replaced them on my beater guitar, about 3 months ago, and it's still there. It just won't wear off. I would suggest getting Martin SP's, they're better than these.

    • On Bright Guitar

    Comments about Martin M1100 Marquis 80/20 Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I LOVE THESE STRINGS... on my bright guitar. I had them laying around and didn't know what they were. They said 80/20 so I thought they would be good on my GA cedar/macassar ebony guitar. I immediately noticed that the guitar sounded softer and a little muted. The tone was good though, but not what I wanted for that guitar. So then I did research on the strings and realized that the material used to make the strings and the wrapped ball ends are responsible for that mellow tone.

    I immediately knew I had to put these on my OOO Adirondack/Rosewood guitar which I find a bit obnoxious. Well I have found the best strings in the world for this guitar! The tone is so smooth, warm. The fingerstyle volume is softer than I would like though. These strings make this guitar sound so good. I never liked playing it really because the tone was just too much, but now I'm all in!

    The Only String

    By Kaleb Trail

    from Martinsburg, WV

    Comments about Martin M1100 Marquis 80/20 Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I have tried and played numerous string brands and finishes. This particular string with the phospher bronze is by far the best string in my opinion. It has plenty of lows and screamin treble. It is super smoothe to play and last a long time. They stay bright and don't mellow out nearly as fast as any competitor string. Straight 5's across the board. There is no other string in my opinion.

    Comments about Martin M1100 Marquis 80/20 Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    These strings are fantastic! I took an older Simon & Patrick spruce to my local guitar shop looking to bring it back to life. The salesperson suggested these, and I couldn't be happier. They made my guitar sing like never before. It makes me want to play all of the time. Try these out, and you won't be sorry.

    A nice high-quality string

    By Artie's friend Basil

    from The northeastern part of the midwest

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Martin M1100 Marquis 80/20 Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    A fine quality string with a nice warm, even tone. The silk winding at the ball end is a nice touch. I would have prefered that the strings were packaged in a sealed plastic pouch (like D'addario's), but the paper envelopes are said to be "corrosion-resisant" (we shall see). Two stings per envelope is a bit cheesy for a class company like Martin.
    Martin Marquis Sttrings are certainly one of the better quality 80/20 bronzes that your likely to find.
    I caught these on sale - it was indeed a spectacular deal. I bought ten sets!

                  I use the strings a lot. I like them better than the Martin Sp series for my use. The value is great but I use them for the way they sound on my guitar. Many new strings are buzzy in sound and so far I have found less buzz with these strings.

                  The Martin Marquis acoustic guitar strings are the best sounding strings there are, and I have tried them all. The strings produce a rich, silky tone unlike any other. The life of the strings is excellent too, they do not go dead quickly or tarnish. I have used these strings on everything from a vintage Gibson J-45 Deluxe, down to a cheap Washburn D10S, and the strings always make the guitars sound top-notch. These are the only strings I will use anymore, and I have never been disappointed by them.

                  These strings have a strange squeekiness on the top 4 strings(the wound ones). It's been there ever since I replaced them on my beater guitar, about 3 months ago, and it's still there. It just won't wear off. I would suggest getting Martin SP's, they're better than these.

                  Of all the strings I've played on a variety of acoustic guitars, these strings hold their tone the longest. Nothing like a fresh set, but after eight to ten hours of heavy play they still sound pretty darn good.
