Great Tone

By AcousticDude

from Lancaster PA

Comments about Martin MEC12 Clapton's Choice Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I have used these on my Martin OM for fingerstyle pieces and really like them. I've moved to the Marquis strings since they wrap the ball end in silk and they are very similar. Sounds good with blues as well as regular fingerpicked music.

Great for Taylors!

By Mike Harris

from El Paso

Comments about Martin MEC12 Clapton's Choice Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

Love the feel and playability of Taylor acoustics, but think they are little too bright? These strings are the solution. They have rich full bass, and clean crisp highs without being overly bright like Elixer's are on my Taylor 314CE. Elixers are great, and I used them on all my guitars except the Taylor because they were just too bright for this guitar. Now the brightness has been toned down and the overall sound is fuller and richer than before. It sounds fantastic, and now I am totally satisfied with the sound of this guitar.

Great strings

By Craig

from Nebraska

Comments about Martin MEC12 Clapton's Choice Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I've been playing guitar for just over a year so I decided to get light strings to make it easier to play bends and just easier to play in general. I put these strings on a cheap guitar that I bought to learn on and they sound incredible. They really improved the sound quality of my guitar. I would recommend these strings for beginners on up to advanced players. Great Strings!

    Comments about Martin MEC12 Clapton's Choice Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    When asked, "do you play the guitar?" I often respond, "No, I pretty much play with the guitar." Still, while I am not a guitar technician nor professional player, I recognize a good, strong string with long life and good tone up and down the neck. I play a 1989 S&P Mahogany, serial number 6091. I didn't use the instrument for a good number of years, so it sat in the case for nearly fifteen years with the original strings. When I pulled it out of the case after all that time it was still in tune, only very fine adjustments needed to bring the tuning back to perfection. I was amazed. I have no idea what strings. Simon and Patrick put on these guitars out of their shop, but they must be some great strings. The MEC12 Clapton strings have the same good tone as those original strings. I do not intend to find out if they have the same longevity.
