Disappointing sound quality from a good brand

23.09.2016
Okay so I'm a long time user of Martin strings. In fact I'm fairly sure martins are all I've ever used. The medium gauge ones to be precise.
Anyway, I decided to give martins light string gauge a go, mostly because my singing voice isn't as strong as I would like it to be, and I also tend to play very lightly these days. I also wanted to included bending in more of my songs, figuring lighter strings would be easier to bend on an acoustic.
So when they arrived I strung the guitar up, but within a few minutes I was already disappointed. Okay, yes they were slightly easier to play, and I noticed a small drop in volume compared to the mediums, but the sound quality was poor. They produced a very metallic sound, and had very little clarity - the overall sound when strumming was a bit muddy.
Even now, nearly two weeks later and after they've been worn and stretched and used, they're only okay at best. Still a slightly metallic sound, only a small bit quieter than the mediums, and bending isn't particularly easier either.
The only reason I can see to buy these strings is if you are a beginner starting off on a steel string, and are finding it difficult to fret chords without calluses.
Then again, I myself started off with medium gauge and got on just fine.

Excellent cheap and cheerful

Perfect guitar strings at a great price. Been using Martin strings for a few years and based on price and longevity they can't be beaten.

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
