    Comments about Martin M200 12-String Silk and Steel Custom Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    A great choice for anyone moving to a 12 string, looking for a warm/mellow sound, or has arthritis.

    These strings provide a very mellow tone and flexible light tension. Unless you're looking for this particular sound, these might not provide the upfront clear bite & presence of phosphor or bronze. They are very comfortable and easy on the hands. Very nice for finger picking, players transitioning into a 12 string, intent of having a smooth aged vintage tone, or those with arthritis/ hand limitations.

      String are the best strings for acoustic guitar..Soft and esay on both guitar and fingers.When there new you'll know the difference as to when they are old and need changing..Old will sound extreamly dead especially the wound strings.Thats to be expected....been useing them since 1974....

      Wonderful Tone and Response

      By 

      from Los Angeles, CA

      Comments about Martin M200 12-String Silk and Steel Custom Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      When I bought my first 12-string back in 1969 after a few tries with a couple of different kinds of strings I got a set of Martin Silk and Steel and never looked back. Forty-odd years later I got to buy another 12-string and was delighted to see Martin is still making the same strings. There is a tone these strings provide which while not as 'heavy' or 'full blooded' as some have a clarity and pureness which lends itself to selective finger-work as well as a rich body and musical blend when strummed. Put simply, I'm a fan.

      Martin M200 Strings

      By 

      from Bellevue, Idaho

      Comments about Martin M200 12-String Silk and Steel Custom Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      I have been using Martin M200 Light Silk and Steel strings since the early 1970's on my old 12 string and on my Fender F330-12 and they are the best sounding and playing strings I have ever used on my 12 strings. I also use Martin light strings on my 6 string but not the silk and steel. They work the best for my style of playing and give me the best tone and resonance.

      Necessary for 12 string folk

      By 

      from Somewhere, USA

      Comments about Martin M200 12-String Silk and Steel Custom Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      Okay, I'm a Lightfoot freak. I do CRT and Yarmouth Castle and many others, plus some Tyson, Taylor and Mitchell. I have tried many strings on my D12-20 and D12-35 and nothing, repeat, nothing sound this good. If you are playing other music, there are probably other string that you might like better, but if you are playing folk and don't like these, you need your fingers examined!
