I have been purchasing Martin MSP 4200 Acoustic Guitar Strings for 15 years now. I have found these strings to be very resilient, and long lasting (which is what they are designed for). My playing style is very agressive, therefore, I must use strings that are high quality and resist breakage. Honestly, I have tried other brands (of all price ranges and quality standards) and find that most are a waste of money, for my particular needs. The longevity charactoristics of the Martin SP line of strings allows for agressive playing, and prolonged string life. Not only do these strings resist breakage, but their superior alloy composition assures their ability to hold their tone longer than any other brand I've used over the years. I hope that this comment does not sound like a "commercial for Martin SP Strings". I am a real musician, have used these strings for many years now, and do not buy any other brand for my guitars. To keep the cost low (these are high-end strings), I purchase these strings by the case (packages of 12 sets) which allows a savings of 40% as compared to retail prices. On average, I purchase at least one case per month, for my own needs. For the musician that plays with an agressive style, or is simply looking for extended life and performance from a set of strings, this product is the best value I have found. -Marshall

A friend of mine introduced these to me and I have not had another string that sounds good and is dependable as these SP's. Those who have heard my guitar (a higher end Guild accoustical 6) thought I was playing an expensive Taylor or Martin. I get great high and lows and when playing in a solo, a great fill. I am definitely a SP fan !

      Good set of strings for the price, but cannot compare to Elixir strings. Don't take the cheapest choice when making your string decision.

          Comments about Martin MSP4200 SP Phosphor Bronze Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          These are great strings that, along with EJ17's, are one of the standard acoustic strings in the industry. They have normal uncoated string life but even after losing their sparkle still retain some good tone for practicing. Never had any prematurely break on me. I'm not a fan of any of the coated strings as the tone of them sounds too unnatural to me. And as a regular gigging musician, my tone is my voice. I don't mind changing my strings more frequently to get great tone. After trying lots of brands, and considering price, these and the EJ17s are all I use.

                Switched to these from my light SPs to play DADGAD. Harmonics shine and if set up right, not muddy in the low end. Definitely tighter tension which is good for drop tuning. Can't beat the price. Go SPs over Elixer for faster break in and woodier tone.

                  all the warmth of phosphor bronze, but yet plenty of sizzle. More highs than some coated strings.
