Martin Silk & Steel Strings
Definitely the best Silk and Steel strings on the market. I love feel and sound!

My search is over.
I've tried strings from D'Addario, Martin and Elixir in my search for the string that best suits my preferences, and that search is now over. These are the strings for me. I started playing classical guitar, then migrated to steel string acoustic. I play finger style almost exclusively and the feel and tone of these strings are just perfect for my needs. They settle in quite quickly (nylon string players will love the fact that they don't take 2 or 3 days to stabilize and hold tune when first installed) and have all the tone and volume I need. With total string tension of just 122 pounds they play as close to classical strings as any steel string I've found. These Silk & Steel's are uncoated, so their durability is average but they're pretty inexpensive. Unless you have a need for sore fingers and/or a BIG sound that can fill a bus terminal, give these a try.

Best acoustic string
This has been my preferred choice of string ever since a friend recommended them for their softer feel about 6-7 years ago. I use them on a vintage Yamaha folk guitar and it's never sounded better.

Silk & Steel
After 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.

I have a Takamine EG540S acoustic guitar.
I have had a few accidents to my left hand and I don't have the strength to play on regular strings.
I use C.F. Martin Folk Guitar Silk & Steel Compound Wound strings because of the above accidents.
They are easier to play and give a good sound.

Martin Silk & Steel Strings
Excellent feel and sound. Very comfortable to play, and very flexible. Great for sore fingers or for players that want a smooth feeling string that is also responsive to the touch. Very good for beginners or experienced players alike. Excellent price at Just Strings too! Martin hit a home run with these strings.

"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."
