Overall Rating for Martin FX Flexible Core Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings
|(based on 2 reviews)| These things are a very good compromise for volume, tone and playability. The first time I strung them up was right before a 5 hr long Jam Camp. My Seagull S6+ played bright and clear. The other players were surprised by that little box's projection in a room full of mandolins and banjos. The strings have very even tone from top to bottom, the base wasn't muddy and the treble wasn't over-bright. And my fingers weren't taking a beating over the duration of the jam session. Lots of flat-picking, hammer-ons and pull-offs with a fair amount of bending on the blues numbers but noticeably less strain on my fingers.

But the thing that really amazed me was how little tuning adjustment was needed even with relatively new strings. They broke in very quickly and just hung in tight.
Pros:Good even tone, excellent playability, very good projection. And they really stay on pitch!
Cons:They don't seem to last, tone-wise, as long as say the Martin SP's.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
I tried out these strings because they were on sale but now I am hooked on their sound. I use them on a Martin D18-V and they sound incredible. I have tried a lot of strings but these are the perfect combination with my guitar.
