It isn't just about flexibility - it's about bending the note till it rings true. Martin's FX strings marry Martin's thinnest core wire to their standard tensions so you stay in control of each and every note. FX strings feel soft to the touch, which makes them ideal for beginners. But don't be fooled by comfort! Just ask Tommy Emmanuel who performs with our FX strings night after night around the globe. With FX, you get total flexibility and total control. These strings are suitable whenever greater flexibility and control are needed, as well as easing the transition from electric to acoustic and for beginning players.

The Martin Guitar Company has been continuously producing musical instruments that are acknowledged as the finest in the world for well over a century and a half. Through the years, Martin & Co. has managed to survive from generation to generation, from C.F. Martin Sr.'s Stauffer influenced creations in the 1830's to recent developments introduced by C.F. Martin IV. Six generations have managed to continuously operate Martin & Co. as a family-owned business. This remarkable feat is one of many that set Martin apart in the music industry as one with staying power.

Throughout their history, Martin has been able to adapt to continual changes in product design, distribution systems, and manufacturing methods.  In spite of the need for these changes, Martin has never veered away from their commitment to quality. The strategy of producing the finest musical instruments available has been evident since 1833, and especially today at the expanded facility in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. The focus on quality carries through to their guitar string production as well.

Excellent strings

By: on 3 November 2014
I ordered these for my son to use on his electric acoustic as he discovered they are used by Tommy Emmanuel. He has fitted them and finds them excellent to play, and give his instrument a great sound.
