Rich tone should last as long as the inspiration does. Built on Martin's durable SP core wire, Martin SP Lifespan strings are the next level in studio and stage performance. Now with a more advanced proprietary treatment from America’s legendary guitar builder, SP Lifespan strings repel dirt, grit and other environmental elements that can quickly alter the sound of your strings. All six strings are treated to ensure a longer life. Martin developed a new and advanced method to treat strings, resulting in a process that ensures both the core and wrap are protected from corrosion. The molecular level treatment adds almost no mass to the string, will not flake or peel, and does not alter the vibration pattern like some string coatings can. The high-tensile strength SP core wire resists breakage and holds tunings longer – a perfect match to the treatment in creating a long life string. SP Lifespans are designed to last longer and sound better so you can play on.

Martin Lifespan SP 7200 are fantastic strings. After having them on my D-18 Golden Era I sold all my other sets of strings and purchased 12 sets. I love them, you will too! Great tone and and they last a long time
I found no tonal differences between the Lifespan and the uncoated Martin SP strings. I also have tried Elixir and D'Addario and I like the Lifespan strings better. I am not sure that they last as long as I had expected, but the probably last at least twice as long as standard strings
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!!
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.
i went to guitar center to get some strings and these were buy one get one free. when i put them on thay stayed in tune fine but thay were rather toneless. also the g string just broke on me on the 3rd day of puting them on the guitar. and i was tuning it down a step! dont get these strings
