4.0 out of 5 stars Great strings that do last., 1 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Martin 80/20 Bronze Lifespan Coated Acoustic Strings 13-56 Medium (Electronics)
I haven't tried coated strings before until now so can't compare these Martins against other brands. I bought a Martin LX1E that came with these on. I bought a backup set of strings just in case. I have played the guitar regular and still haven't changed the strings it came with after approximately 6 months. The strings still sound pretty good. Standard phosphor bronze martins are usually dead after a month and require changing so I guess the coating really works and is worth paying extra for. I don't think the tone is as crisp and bell like as standard Martin strings, but I'm willing to sacrifice that for the extra playing time. I still wipe down the strings after playing which I'm not sure if you are meant to. I would be interested to know if anyone doesn't clean these strings after playing and how it affects string life.
