Silk & Steel...a must try for all acoustic players!


I've strung almost all my acoustics (I'm an Alvarez junky) with these strings...I like them that much. I'm a lighter touch player...and these strings are like butter...and sound really good!




"Are those electric strings on your Martin?"


Great for quiet finger style playing. Bright initial tone that mellows out quickly. When strummed hard has a jangly hoopy tone, that I really like but your tastes may differ.



Try these strings...you'll love them!


Love these strings. Am putting them on all my acoustics.



Strings for beginners


These are great strings for beginners to learn with. Easier on those newbie fingertips. J.D. helped me out, he is a great employee.



These are the perfect strings to accompany my playing style


These are the perfect strings to accompany my playing style on my new gibson J45 . They are easy on the frets, as well as my fingers, they sustain well. sound great, and last reasonably well too. I went through several iterations with different gauges and manufactures......and withe the Marquies Im very pleased.



Love these easy to play strings...


Being relatively new to the acoustic guitar after playing drums for 60 some years...Someone suggested these and are easy on my fingers...The acoustic with these strings gives off a nice mellow tone. A great way to go from the start with easy strings such as these. I really think anyone starting guitar and have these strings in the beginning won't lose their enthusiasm for practice and playing. Can't go wrong with Silk/Steel Folk string set!
