OVERVIEW

Flexible, yet durable, with plenty of brilliance.

Titanium Core acoustic guitar strings deliver the ultimate player's experience with patented technology and a prioprietary winding process only available from Martin. Experience a new level of comfort and response with industry-leading stability and superior corrosion resistance.

The Process
Martin employs a unique and proprietary winding process for their Titanium strings that produces strings like nothing else on the market. This process allows them to use materials that have never been used before to make guitar strings. This is a slow and methodical mechanical process that ensures the most consistent and securely wrapped string, an attribute that affects every aspect of the string’s playability, endurance and tone. The improved coupling and consistent gap between the round core wire and the wrap wire results in superb intonation. Like fine wine, this winding process takes a long time, but we know every set is worth the wait!

The Core
The name says it all! Martin’s Titanium Core strings use true titanium for the core wire of this new breed of strings. And you can only get them from Martin! The Titanium core wire is round, not hex, and titanium is more flexible than steel, providing a very comfortable playing experience while remaining strong and durable. The plain strings are also unique to this product, as they are cryogenically treated stainless steel. The cryogenic treatment protects the string and brings out more brilliance in the stainless steel, while the stainless steel itself provides enhanced flexibility and comfort.

The Wrap
Martin’s uses nickel to wrap the Titanium strings. Nickel is naturally corrosion-resistant and holds its tone for a very long time. The nickel and titanium work together to provide the ultimate corrosion-free string.

FEATURES
  • Core wire: Round titanium
  • Wrap wire: Nickel
  • Plain strings: Cryogenically treated stainless steel

    Comments about Martin Titanium Core Acoustic Guitar Strings Nickel Wrap Light Tension:

    When tuning the G string from the light gauge set, it broke before attaining pitch.This problem has been experienced by all but one the those who reviewed these strings on the site. I do not recommend these strings especially in view of the EXTREMELY HIGH PRICE.

        Comments about Martin Titanium Core Acoustic Guitar Strings Nickel Wrap Light Tension:

        The strings are very nice, but if the you read the negative reviews for these strings (2 stars or less) you will find that the "G" string broke during the re-stringing of their guitar. Happened to me too when re-stringing my Martin OM 28. Been playing guitar for over 50 years and have some experience changing strings. So what do you do? Spend another forty for a "G" string? There are so many durable Martin strings available for 1/4 the cost. Just be advised!

          Comments about Martin Titanium Core Acoustic Guitar Strings Nickel Wrap Light Tension:

          I bought these to try a new product on my Martin guitars. The tone is somewhat broken in. It's not overly bright but not dull. They've been on for 5 weeks at 2-3 hours a day of play and still no issues, no corrosion, and tone is the same. They don't drift too far out of tune between sessions. I will admit i wash my hands before i play, wipe the instruments down when im done and keep the humidity beteeen 48-52%. I'm happy with them, so far. Try them, I've had no issues so far.

                The tone is great but I expected them to be tougher. Shortly after stringing and tuning the g string broke which I did t think would happen with these strings especially with the strength that was advertised.

                    Made my robust gutsy Guild D50 sound like a cheap Taylor guitar. Way to bright and tin like sound. No bottom end. I can only describe the tone horrible. A waste of money
