These strings are engineered with the performer in mind and they will always stand up to rigorous practice and performance schedules. Martin strings begins with the highest tensile-strength core wire, then tin-plate it on all six strings for added corrosion resistance; because what you don’t see matters! When coupled with a highest quality wrap wire you get consistent true tone that you can count on song after song.

I'm making an attempt in my fifties to learn how to play guitar like I never did in my teens. These strings feel nice, have a nice smooth tone, and are string-bending-friendly for when I am getting my (aspiring) Clapton on!

These Strings have allowed me to play again!

These Silk and Steel strings have allowed me to play guitar again! I have suffered from painful nerves in my hand going up to my elbow for ten years now. There have been long period that I could not play at all or for very long before the pain sets in for days or more. I have been able to play longer and even get to the next level, thanks to these strings. The only downside is that they are not durable. If you do a lot of bending and these bend easily, the wire coiling on strings will eventually break. They only last a month or two for me. So I buy these strings 4 sets at a time. However, his tradeoff is well worth it for me. These strings are a great choice for the beginner or someone with a sensitive hand or if you want a slightly softer sound from your steel string guitar.

I really liked my new 340 Ibanez Otume. It was a special order so I never got a chance to check it out. Sound was great, strings we're harder to press than I imagined. I just didn't love it. My thought was that silk and steel strings would help. Joe not only installed the strings, he tweaked the neck so the strings rested closer to the neck. What an amazing transformation. I now love my guitar. And, A big thank you to Joe in Clearwater.

Excellent Strings Good Advice from your pro

New strings always make my old Wasbourne sound better. These string were remarkably brighter without sacrificing lows. A friend commented "Did you get a new guitar? I don't remember it sounding so rich".

Great suggestion by my neighbor

Had Christmas breakfast with my neighbors and found out that Anthony played guitar. We jammed a little, discussed chord fingering/frets and playing styles. He tried out my guitar and made a suggestion I buy these strings because they are lighter and would be easier on the fingertips. I took him up on his recommendation and am glad I did. Definitely will continue to use these going forward.
