  • Really nice sound and feel

    As reviewed by Steve on 11/28/2009

    I was sent a set of the Martin FX130 strings by Martin's Owner Club recently and just fell in love with them. The far superior feel, absence of string buzz, and tonal quality can't be beat in my book. I have always used Martin strings - usually the SP series - but have found a new favorite in these FX130's. Certainly worth a try, if like me, you want the most in sound from your Martin or other acoustic guitar.

  • As a fingerstylist...

    As reviewed by Daniel Martin on 10/9/2013

    As a fingerstylist, you tend to reach a point in your playing life where you start to look beyond the typical, in search of specific tonal qualities you may be looking for. I had heard that Martin had done some focus grouping for fingerstylists and developed strings catered to the style of playing, so naturally I took these bad boys for a spin. To better get a picture of the sound, I'll explain the overall impression of the string from the player's point of view (myself), and an outside listener's perspective (my fianc?, who is also a guitarist). As the player, these were the most ridiculously easy strings to play I have ever experienced. They play with the softest touch, allowing the player to focus on nuances and details in the demonstration if their sound instead of the dreaded slur and buzzing you tend to get past fret 7. I felt that the sound of the strings blended the archetypical metallic phosphor bronze sound with a little bit of warmth and "roundness" that silk and steel strings are characteristic of, producing a balanced piano like quality with notably great sustain...for the bass and mid strings, at least. My primary problem with these strings comes with the flimsy B and e strings, which sound and feel too low gauge to compete with the other strings. The trebles were just too weak to keep up, which is a fairly deadly kiss for fingerstyle strings. Harmonics on those strings sounded notably weak and "clicky", as the sound of plucking the string overwhelmed the actual harmonic, no matter how soft you attack. My fianc? felt that the strings sounded "tinny and weak"; "I couldn't focus on the music or the message of whatever you were playing because I couldn't get over how weak the strings sounded, or the click of the strings against the fret board [especially in altered tunings]". That is a very fair assessment; if you are playing anything altered that deviates lower than standard, then these strings are not for you. Overall, I was impressed with the tonal qualities of the string, don't get me wrong. I just feel as if the strings aren't well balanced given the tinny and wimpy trebles. I can only recommend them for those sticking to standard tuning and are looking for a efficient, stupidly easy string to play with a solid phosphor bronze sound...given you don't stray from standard.
