Great Sounding Strings!

By 

from Cincinnati, OH

Staff Reviewer

These strings have a great tone and an amazing sound, but they are more comfortable on your fingers and stay in tune better than standard strings. Their better build quality also reduces the chance of breaking, so they will last longer than average strings. These are great strings for any serious guitarist!

Great strings

By

Staff Reviewer

They are a litle different than steel strings. They are a little more flexible, but seem to be very strong. They hold intonation very well and seem to last also. Made of titanium!

Best strings on the market!

By 

from NYC

Staff Reviewer

Love those strings! Well balanced across the frequency spectrum - deep and clear lows and crispy highs. Unlike other high-end strings these won't lose the high end after a week, they'll sound just as crisp for weeks.

I love these strings

By 

from Edison, NJ

Staff Reviewer

The titanium acoustic strings are by far some of the most durable strings made by Martin for acoustic guitar. Consistently wrapped, these are fairly stable and stay in tune longer than many other comparative stings. They are fairly light, so they maintain a nice and light playability while not compromising on strength.

Very Durable

By 

from Edison, NJ

Staff Reviewer

This past year Martin Strings introduced their new series of strings called the Titanium Core series. With its Titanium core, these strings are both very flexible, which makes playing very easy, and very durable, which allows them to stay in tune for longer and has less of a chance to break when tuning and playing. The price is definitely worth it since these strings will last you ages longer than your regular acoustic strings.

Staff Reviewer

These strings are super comfortable for anyone desiring a softer touch without sacrificing durability. The titanium strings are extremely durable and maintain excellent intonation. These strings are definitely worth experimenting with if you are looking to try something innovative and new to the market.

Great feeling new strings from Martin

By 

from Cincinnati, OH

Staff Reviewer

We installed these on our favorite Martin D28 in the shop to get an idea on the tone and feel. So far these strings seem exceptional. Sure they are a bit more expensive than the DR Rare Phosphor Bronze and John Pearse Phosphor Bronze strings that are my usual go to choices for acoustics. But the feel is fantastic they are definitely a bit easier on the hands. The tone is excellent albeit a little different than I'm used to, not a bad or a good thing just kind of like do you prefer vanilla or chocolate ice cream. I'll do my best to describe it as balanced and lively but a little warmer and mellower in overall timbre than my usual choice in phosphor bronze strings (which are a little bolder and brighter). I'd say the biggest difference would be in the ease of playability. So if you favor a well balanced tone but want to make work for your fingers a little easier check out these awesome new Martin Titanium Core strings.
