Superior performance, longer life.

Martin SP Lifespan acoustic guitar strings are treated with Cleartone proprietary technology to bring you the longest possible string life without sacrificing tone or natural feel.

Martin SP Lifespan strings are designed to repel the oils and dirt that can deaden strings. All six strings are treated to preserve the natural Martin SP sound and feel that players prefer.

Phosphor Bronze strings are bright, but slightly warmer sound than 80/20 bronze when first put on the guitar. They offer consistent tone over time. Phosphor bronze has a copper/tin alloy, making them sound brighter than regular bronze strings.

MSP7200 strings are recommended for rhythm rock, jazz, blues and folk styles.

Martin SP Lifespan acoustic guitar strings are used by Martin on the majority of its production guitars. Martin SP Lifespan with Cleartone proprietary technology provides a rich full tone with the added benefit of longer life. The Martin SP Lifespan acoustic guitar strings start with ultra-pure steel SP core wire, which delivers a perfect combination of tensile strength and response. Bronze electroplating is added to protect and enhance the core wire, which is complemented by the wraps that bring the full, rich tone players demand. Finally, Martin's custom wrapping technique ensures tight tolerances to gauge and tension. Martin SP sets are sent to Everly Music for treatment with Cleartone proprietary technology. This treatment provides the thinnest protection in the industry and does not flake or peel. The treatment protects both the wrap and core wire by repelling dirt and grime that can deaden a string. Wrap windings remain open and uncovered to permit natural vibration patterns. The Cleartone proprietary technology preserves and protects the natural rich full tone of the Martin SP strings.

  • Best strings for a warm feel

    As reviewed by Gabriel Murray on 7/13/2011

    WARNING: these strings are not the best for a bright tone! That's not why I buy them anyway, they work fine for that purpose, however there are better strings out there for that purpose. I don't know what that 1 star review is about guys, I think he got a bad batch of strings. Playability wise, as long as you have tough hands that can handle .013 guages, they are a breeze. I'm crazy about the tone! I play it with my Martin DRS1 and I feel refreshed everytime. They also grab everyones attention when I play them because they give off such a lush sound on my DRS1. Style of music is going to determine your experience with them. I play alternative, blues rythmic, and funk style strumming. (think john frusciante and hendrix)so the strings compliment the sound greatly. If you're interested in a more blues finger-picking or even just a brighter tone these are not the strings--as I said in the beginning. I've never had major tuning problems, just a lil off when u drop to D frequently but it comes back. I recommend the setup I have them in: Martin/Solid through and through/Dreadnought body/Darker woods such as the woods used for the d15m and drs1. They serve their purpose best when in that setup (in my opinion). Like I said I love the tone and you won't be dissapointed if you're buying them for the right reason,each set of strings serves a different purpose.

  • Best strings I have used

    As reviewed by David Madden on 3/7/2011

    I have played for a good while and used all sorts of strings. Before these I would use nothing but Elixers because of their lasting tone. I find the tone and feel of these strings to be much better than the Elixers. Also, I play very hard and have had some trouble with Elixers breaking on me...these never have. I have only changed them because they were old and worn out, never because one had broken. Definitely try these strings; they're all I will use now.

  • So far so good

    As reviewed by David Gutierrez on 2/21/2013

    I've been looking for a certain tone from my acoustic that past few months. I've tried D addrio EXP and I liked the sound but something was missing. I haven't tried the Helix nor the Elixir, even though people tell me to try them out. I will but not right now!! I put these strings on my Ibanez and it was a match!! I love the way they make my Emerald beauty plays!! I couldn't put it down for the first 3 hours!! The Low strings have the right ring that I'm looking for and the high strings have that brightness that I'm looking for in my playing!! i'll try other strings but I don't know when!!
