As always Martin comes through with quality Nov 22, 2007
"Bob in Big Bear Ca"
I bought a set of these and several other sets of stings to find a set that would work for me on my new Taylor 814-CE.
When I first put them on they felt OK, but they where too bright. After a couple of days they sounded great, I've always used Martin Strings, and D`Addario strings on my acoustics, but since this was my first Grand Auditorium size guitar I wanted to go through several sets.
So far I've played a set of these and the D`Addario EXPs, and love them both. These are brighter than the EXPs, but both are well balanced, and sound much better than the Elixir's that came on the guitar when I bought it new.
I have several other sets to go through yet, but you just can't go wrong on Martin strings, and the fact that E.C. is endorsing them is pretty much a guarantee that your going to get a great sound from these strings.
very good, purchased on advise of experienced guitar playing friends Jun 13, 2013

makes my baby sing. On the downside- it still doesn't make me sound like Clapton! Two of my acoustic playing friends recommended for me to try these out. I would purchase them again

Great strings from a great company! ....I wouldn't use any others on my Martin! Why would you? Martin quality....enough said...
Clapton sound is there alright Apr 25, 2011

I wanted to mention that these strings are a little unforgiving on less than perfectly maintained guitars.
The Clapton tone is there, perfect for playing the Unplugged songs, but I can't help but feel my beater Yamaha acoustic suffers in the mid-strings with excessive buzz.
I'm sure these are great for a real Martin or other quality guitar, just be careful if your trying to accomplish anything with a beater like mine, you might be better off with some Slinky's.
