Martin Marquis Mediums Phosphor Bronze New
Good String, good price, does the job. The wrappings on the ball ends are a nice plus. Good Intonation and sustain. I used these in the past and they don't break often and usually only during tuning. Fresh out of the packet these sound a bit harsh and tinny(metallic string overtones) but with ample volume and fullness. Being a medium gauge these are not easy to fret and are better suited for open chords and alternate tunings rather than fast fret work and bar chords. The B and E treble strings lack punch compared to the low strings but have a pleasant balance and sweetness when doing chords up the neck.
