Product Reviews for C.F. Martin Folk Guitar Silk & Steel Compound Wound, .0115 - .047, M-130

C.F. Martin Folk Guitar Silk & Steel Compound Wound, .0115 - .047, M-1305DonApril 2, 2011After playing bronze strings for many years I had to switch to the lighter tension of silk & steel strings due to tendinitis. I like the the strings a lot more than I thought I would, they sound great for fingerstyle, the guitar seems more balanced. Intonation is really good, one of my guitars plays in tune much better than it did when I was using coated bronze strings. Since the string tension is lighter, playing is easier and more enjoyable. The only down side is they don't sound as good as traditional bronze or phosphor stings for strumming.

"Martin Strings are high quality strings for daily use. That's what distinguishes them from other brands. Core and wrap wires must meet strict requirements in order to make the grade. Martin Strings are wound to precise specifications. Available in 80/20 Bronze, Silk & Steel, and Nylon.

Today's acoustic guitarists demand strings with great response and superb brilliance. Martin Phosphor Bronze strings are made from 92/8 composition to give that superior brilliance, clarity, and longevity of sound required by serious guitarists. The Phosphor Bronze winding alloy is ideally suited for making strings that have deep, rich basses and clear, bright trebles.

Our Cryogenic Strings are produced to the same high quality standards as Martin Strings. An additional step in the manufacturing process exposes the strings to extremely low temperatures (-300 F), a process used in "high tech" industrial applications where consistent hardness of metal materials is required."
