I have used the Martin Acoustic string for quite a while and am always satisfied... I especially like this series of string. They do sound great and are dependable equipment for your Guitar....... Here is a plus: When I play Acoustic, I use my Seagull, S6 Coastline........... When I get a compliment on my tone... I always say, : "Yep, you know some of this guitar is part Martin!" ........ Nothing at all wrong with a Seagull, but I prefer the Martin Strings for my Flat Top............. Hope this review helps in some way...

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.

    Great strings, have on vintage Gibsons. Heavy enough for superb tone, but not so heavy to damage older necks.

        I purchased a couple Martin acoustic guitars some time ago and the dealer used these strings. The first time I used strings I previously used on these guitars, I noticed a huge difference both in overall tone and longevity. These strings are the only strings I use now, they're worth the price.

            If you have a cheap guitar strings don't matter if you play a decent instrument then they do, these are good strings. the light and medium gauge work well and seem to last longer than strings that are not coated. I will purchase more of these strings in the future.

              I've used these on multiple guitars in the past year. Beautiful tones from high to low. Nice feel. Some flex for bends. Perfect for my larger parlor and baby jumbo size guitars. Works on the dreadnought too, when I don't want to work as hard as 13's. For me, these hold up for a month of daily playing; much longer for occasional use. Great strings!

                    I have used quite a few different string sets including more expensive coated ones that claim to last longer. These have been the best I used so far. Great tone that really brings my acoustic to life. If you are a typical non-professional player and do not change strings as often, the cost is well worth it because the coating enables them to last longer with good tone under normal everyday use.

                      These are the best sounding coated Phosphor Bronze strings. The Elixir Nanoweb's don't last as long and are missing something in tone. D'Addario EXPs eventually sound good but they take some time to break in and continue to squeak. LifeSpan coated strings are very bright and sound great on Martin D series and other dreads where the player wants a bright tone, the only problem is they are very stiff and tend to break easily when changing. I've never wasted more strings do to breaks during string changes than Martin LifeSpan's; You have to be very careful with these strings. Once you get them on there usually ins't a problem.

                          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.

                                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.
