Review by Charlie Richardson
|My Overall Rating:|
If you already own an acoustic guitar or are looking to buy one the one of the important things you need to consider is what strings are you going to use. This can be a challenge for a novice as there is such a wide variety within the strings section of the market. Strings are sold based on strength, material they are made from and brand. Martin MSP4200 Phosphor Bronze strings are ideal for guitarist who loves deep, rich basses and clear tone. These 92/8 phosphor bronze are wounded to precise specifications and designed for daily picking.
Martin MSP4200 acoustic guitar strings use a winding alloy that makes crisp and clear treble tones while offering the deepest and richest of bass tones. They are specifically made to endure all manner of everyday playing and provide good longevity with that in mind.
Being a Martin strings fan for years, I could tell that these Martin SP strings are produced to strict, exacting standards. They never intentionally send out below par strings for retailing. They are wound with expertise and finesse to ensure that they sound great, last long and are easy to use. What make Martin MSP4200 different from other strings is they are good quality strings at low price. These strings deliver beautiful tone and last long too. You don’t have to worry about easy breakage with Martin MSP4200.
Reviews of these Martin MSP4200 strings on the whole have been positive. A few niggles here and there are dwarfed in comparison to the raves about the ease of stringing a guitar with these and the different in sound they can give to a guitar in comparison to other brands. The price seems to be a shining glory as they out price many big guns in the string business, but offer the same quality and in some cases even better quality than their rivals.
Many reviewers have commented that now they have used Martin strings that they would never use another make of strings again. They are best matched with a smaller guitar as there is less string tension and therefore more comfortable to use than if you used them on a full-size guitar. Smaller guitars by nature are less powerful and often harder to project sound with, by using these Martin medium strings this will lend a helping hand to produce more vibrant, attention grabbing sounds.
Whether novice or seasoned pro, the reviews speak for themselves, the Martin MSP4200 strings are strings that offer more than their competitors for a fraction of the price. Simply put Martin MSP4200 on your guitar and tune it, you will be amaze by its fabulous tone. They will definitely blow you away. Read more reviews.
92/8 Phosphor Bronze
Put these on a Hohner Acoustic to replace some nylon strings it had. SUCH an improvement. Completely different sound. Crisp, clean, just amazing. Cant beat that price either. Snag a set of these! Not much else to say, Martin knows what they’re doing. [Read full review]
