Eric Clapton loves his Martin acoustic guitar strings so much that he wanted to put his name on them. Martin is forever proud that they make the strings Eric trusts to produce his legendary guitar sounds.

What does Eric have to say about Martin Strings? "When I play acoustic guitar, whether in a studio or on stage, Martin Strings are my choice," he states. "They deliver the sound that I demand."

      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.

                These are nice strings with a good tone and they resonate very nicely on my Mitchell guitar.

                I loved these strings! They are very balanced in their tone, and are great for fingerstyle and strumming. I would recommend these for any acoustic Zeppelin or Clapton song.
