C.F. Martin & Company is legendary for their guitars. Founded in 1833, Martin instruments are recognized as among the world's best, and their strings are designed with the same attention to quality and performance. We carry the complete line of first-class Martin guitar strings for acoustic and electric instruments. We also have their bronze mandolin strings, nickel wound Vega banjo strings and nickel alloy dulcimer strings. The Lifespan SP series features strings treated with Cleartone, which repels dirt and oils and extends the life of the strings while maintaining tonal quality and natural feel. The 80/20 or phosphor bronze Martin acoustic guitar strings are made for long-lasting daily use. In the Acoustic FX series, each string is made with a special thin wire core for improved sustain and increased flexibility. These strings are available in silk and phosphor, 80/20 bronze and phosphor bronze. The Marquis Series strings have silk-wrapped balls that help to reduce bridge wear, and are perfect for vintage instruments.
The Clapton's Choice strings have a clear and warm tonal quality that will enhance the player's sound and bring out subtleties in their style. They are the preferred strings of legendary guitarist Eric Clapton. Martin's Acoustic SP series is especially recommended for studio and live performance use, when long string life is especially important. The Darco Series (available as acoustic, electric and classical) offer special value while still delivering on superbly engineered quality. For whatever your needs, Martin guitar strings are the professionals' choice.
