Guitarists often switch between different types of strings, whether it be down to the gauge or just a desire to try out different brands. The Lifespan range of strings by Martin however offers exceptional acoustic quality in the same way their extensive array of acoustic guitars do. Martin have constructed the Lifespan guitar strings using their myriad of experience to ensure that the tone is everlasting with an acoustic sound that will inspire the masses.
C.F. MARTIN & CO
For almost two centuries, Martin have been crafting some of the finest guitars we have ever seen or heard. This family-owned company are continuing to do this in their own way while trying out new and innovative techniques that make their products (be it guitars or accessories) stand out from the rest. Over the years, Martin guitars have been the instrument of choice for a huge range of different guitarists, from Johnny Cash to the one and only Elvis Presley, with more recently recognised artists such as Thom Yorke from Radiohead and the late Kurt Cobain.
The Martin Lifespan Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings are an extra light gauge which may be favoured by those who own a smaller bodied guitar or one with a cutaway design. These strings have been given an innovative and new patented treatment known as Cleartone technology which combines the ability for the strings to last longer but vibrate as naturally as normal. Though you will hear the difference, it won’t affect how your strings feel so you’ll barely notice the treatment and you will be able to play for hours. The strings are also protected against corrosion and dirt, and they are durable enough to resist against breakage.
The Lifespan extra light strings contain 92% copper, 8% tin and traces of lead, iron, zinc and phosphor and have a real featherweight feel. They produce a rich, low bass and crisp, high trebles, with an overall warm acoustic timbre. The phosphor in the strings allows them to retain their tone for longer durations, making them live up to their “lifespan” title.
Once you give the Martin Lifespan Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings a chance, you won’t look back!
