12 string silk and steel
Been playing my D12-20 since 1974. They stopped making this guitar in 1987. But Silk and Steel is all it's ever had since I bought it. Other than the strings it came with. And I still have everything intact. The case, the guitar.
This was built in 72. It's been my best friend since. But Silk and Steel, are the best.
About to buy 4 more sets of strings in a couple of days. Was thinking of trying a set of Phosphor Bronze Extra Light. Anybody ever tried them??? Text me @ 2108312306...thanks

Great Strings!
I've always sworn by these strings for my old Martin. Delighted to find this wonderful source, so reasonably priced and they arrived just a couple days after ordering!

Rating Silk & Steel Guitar Strings
I have been using Martin Silk & Steel Strings for both my 12-string guitars and 6-string Spanish style guitars since 1963 and won't use any other! The sound they put out is superior to the thump-thump that bronze strings put out. Only my classical guitar doesn't have them and I will keep it that way. The tone is so far superior!

CF Matin Silk and Steel Strings
I had an acoustic guitar that was just hard to play. My local Music Store recommended Martin's Silk and Steel Strings because they are more pliable. What a huge difference. The Silk and Steel combination made the guitar playable again. I have since moved on to a better guitar the stings however are a must use, not only for comfort but the sound quality is just what you would expect from CF Martin.

"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."
