Great sound and build quality
Eddyb222 20.09.2020
Only negative for me is more of a personal issue - I sweat.. A lot. Many strings corrode quickly for me, and these are one of them. Otherwise excellent build quality. I tend to fingerpick - country and folk - and there's a full warm sound. Go smaller guage if you want something brighter and twangier!

Long sustain, pleasant for fingers, excellent for deep and bright sound extraction even from ordinary guitar
PavelMB 26.03.2021
I was afraid that thick 12 strings would appear too heavy to tune and make some harm to my 25yo korean jackson/charvel 550 dreadnought 10 or 11 (I don't remember). There were nothing to worry about. The strings were tuned perfectly. The guitar just needs some neck bend adjustment (slight clockwise turn of the anker) afterwards. After I re-stringed the Martin's red 12s the guitar new sound became awesome. Long sustain, bright and deep sound, no problem for fingers to give strings enough pressure in hard to press chords or in solo. No too much creak when move fingers along 3-6th. I like the overall result. Martin says it will last long due to their treatment. I hope so.

Needed a Change From Elixirs
GF. Big 29.01.2023
I started to get tired of Elixirs on my acoustics because they have their own sound, which kind of overshadows the tone of my guitars. These strings sound and play naturally, and I cannot complain about their 'lifespan.'

Cant use anything else
Carmanov 08.03.2024
I had been using Elixir and so have many of my friends. I have a Martin D16GT and I always dreaded putting on new strings because how bright they sounded. I wanted them to sound new but not that bright. The tone I wanted only would come out a week later or so. Then I wanted to give Authentic Treated a try and oh my days. The brightness was just perfect and the lifespan also keeps it fresh. Never looked back since then. This is my only go to strings and probably it will be for a very long time.
