Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
As satisfied as a guy can be!
Sound
In over 30 years of guitar playing, these are the best guitar strings I have ever used. The sound quality is superior to any others I have ever used. They also last longer than any other strings I have ever used. The tonal qualtiy is excellent.
Features
Comes with a nice clapton sticker. No biggie, but it's cool.
Ease of Use
Couldn't be easier to use. They are soft to the touch and they stretch/bend beautifully.
Quality
Just the best I've ever used.
Value
At less than six bucks, you can't beat them.

"Clapton's Choice - Phosphor Bronze Light .012-.054 Martin Acoustic Guitar Strings."
I have been playing since I was seven I am 54 years young now. You can spend more money on acoustic guitar strings, but you will not find any better. I guess over the years I've played about every string on the market. I rate the Martin strings some of the best. I never go play music without extra. The Name Clapton says the rest.

"Nice set of strings."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall a standard set of strings. I do like the Martin Sp series strings as thay last a while and sound very good. But time will tell for these.
Sound
I think they sound really well. Have a nice ping to the sounds. Work well add some Bass to the sound of my Martin OM1-GT.
Features
No Features. They come as sets, Low E and B, A and High E, D and G. I would perfer individule but no big deal I guess. THie is the seconf set the first came individual a Sticker and these came a sets of two with no sticker.
Ease of Use
Nothing different than any other string to install. Sound great though.
Quality
We shall see how long they stand up to daily playing before I need to replace.
Value
Standard price range for normal Acoustic strings around $6.00.
Manufacturer Support
Never used but the Martin Web site has a lot of information available.
The Wow Factor
No sex appeal, just wanted to try a set of artist strings. Not found of the set package would perfer individual.

""HOLY #@$*!!!!!!!!!""
I've changed back ounce and my guitars became crap again so I through the strings out. I bougth FX strings because they where also new martin strings and I thought maybe it was a trend but no luck whatsoever. I'm looking for EC strings in bulk now so I know that they will always be there.
Sound
In 25 years of playing these are the best guitar strings I have ever used. They turned every acoustic I own into a monster. I can't believe it.
Features
Yeah it came with a sticker and I keep them in my glove box. If someone parks close to me I slap one on their car and they have old EC to deal with.
Ease of Use
Strings.
Quality
Last for over a year.
The Wow Factor
They actually look good too mean and old looking
