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.

Delicate strings, easy on the hands!

Anonymous290, 20.02.2018
I wanted a light set of strings that wouldn't tire my hand out too quickly for long practice sessions. These strings indeed do the trick. The package looks different than in the image presented, but the content is what matters.
The strings came packed individually in paper packs. They sound bright but not too harsh. I've put these on a smaller bodied guitar, knowing that 80/20's provide a slightly louder tone than phosphor bronze.
They are very light on the fingers and do the job just fine.
