Product Reviews for C.F. Martin Mandolin 80/20 Bronze Wound 8 String, .010 - .034, M-400

C.F. Martin Mandolin 80/20 Bronze Wound 8 String, .010 - .034, M-4005Dara Korra'tiDecember 9, 2011I tried several sets of mandolin strings, but I've settled on these Martins for their combination of strong low end, clarity, and durability. Almost as clear on the high end as the D'Addarios, but more durable and with a better low end, they are in fact the only single-set stringing I use. (For my zouk, I combine different makers to make an optimal set.) I also tried a phosphor bronze variant but it was a bit overbright, and the SPs got a bit thuddy on me, and just felt generally sluggish. These M400s, for me, have the best balance of tones and quickness.

"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."
