5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Elixir 27 April 2012
By JohnL
Size Name:MSP6050 Custom Light 11-52|Verified Purchase
I had used the SP 12s prior to buying these and liked them sound wise, but found them a bit too heavy on my D-18. The D'Darrio 10s I normally use were too light for the way the neck is set up and these 11s are the perfect match for the guitar. I had tried the Elixir strings in the past which were ok on the 3rd, 2nd and 1st., but the lower strings, especially the bottom E, never sounded as bright. No such problem with these Martin strings with every note ringing out loud and crystal clear. Finger noise on the strings is perfectly manageable too. I recommend trying these to anyone looking for a long-lasting string in this gauge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great strings, fair price 27 July 2012
By John
Size Name:MSP6100 Light 12-54|Verified Purchase
Got these (lights 12-54) for my Taylor GS Mini. I was initially concerned about the gauge being too light/heavy as acoustic string gauge seems to vary from one manufactor to the next but they sound and feel perfect for me once strung on the guitar - loud, rich, balanced and not too bright.
I've previously always used Ernie Ball Earthwood PBs on my acoustics but needed something a little heavier as the neck on the guitar is a shorter scale and these strings had come recommended from various Gs mini owners- I'm not disappointed either, the tone seems enhanced and they deliver ease of playability too, not hard on the fingers at all, the guitar seemed to come to life.
Can't comment on the lifespan at this point sorry, will keep posted.
Would recommend you give these a go if in any doubt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coated strings that feel like uncoated! 27 Feb 2012
By Linsey
Size Name:MSP6100 Light 12-54|Verified Purchase
Very impressed with these strings, they ring like elexir strings but don't have that slippery feel to them so you don't find them slipping from under your fingers when you are bending. At under 8 a set a bargain.

By Harr75
Size Name:MSP6050 Custom Light 11-52
Compared to the excellent elixir strings, the inventors of coated strings, these are well below par. Unlike the wonderfully smooth feel of elixirs, Martin's efforts are sticky and squeaky, almost unplayable in fact. They sound good as long as you don't move your fingers- what's the point of that? Useless.
