    Ended up being out of stock, had to wait a while to get them. Good thing I had a spare set. . .

    Comfortable and quiet!

    By David Long

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Martin M130 Folk Guitar Silk and Steel Compound Wound Acoustic Strings:

    Wow! What a difference compared to conventional steel strings. Great tone, easy playing and less squeeking. Too early to determine life of the strings, but gave it a 9 out of 10 for out-of-box performance.

    The right sound

    By mclarensmps

    from Toronto, Ontario

    Comments about Martin M130 Folk Guitar Silk and Steel Compound Wound Acoustic Strings:

    I'd been wanting to try out some mellow strings on my Takamine EAN70, because, frankly, I was tired of playing bright, plucky strings, and wanted a change. I bought two sets of strings to try out. These Martins, and GHS Silk & Steel. I put the Martins on my guitar and they gave me the exact sound I was looking for! The sound is very smooth, dark and melodic. It's absolutely wonderful for rhythm sections, but I enjoy them equally for bluesy fingerpicking sections. I really enjoy playing the strings, and they are very very user friendly. Having said that, their one downside is that since they lack the brightness, it does require a bit more effort on the player's part on techniques such as pull offs and such. It's not a HUGE deal, but just something to point out for those that are a bit new to this! Very enjoyable, and I will probably replace them with another set, and hold on to the GHS for emergency situations.

    Dramatic Improvement on Certain Guitars

    By PaulB

    from Geneva, IL

    Comments about Martin M130 Folk Guitar Silk and Steel Compound Wound Acoustic Strings:

    I put a set of these on a friend's inexpensive dreadnought, and it made a huge difference in tone and especially playability. Action was (still is) kind of high, but these strings are slinky enough to make the guitar much easier to finger without making other adjustments.

    Great Sound

    By Rob Matlock

    from Bossier City, La

    Comments about Martin M130 Folk Guitar Silk and Steel Compound Wound Acoustic Strings:

    I bought a used guitar, and it sounded "Twangy", so someone suggested I put Silk ans Steel strings on it. Of course I choose Martin because of the high quality of their products. The strings are very easy to fret, and made my guitar sound like a $1000 bucks.

    silk and steel strings

    By clay hoff

    from greensboro, nc

    Comments about Martin M130 Folk Guitar Silk and Steel Compound Wound Acoustic Strings:

    these are great strings to use on any vintage acoustic or other guitars that you want to reduce the string tension so there is less stress on the neck and soundboard

    Sound of Angels

    By Anthony Wyatt

    from California

    Comments about Martin M130 Folk Guitar Silk and Steel Compound Wound Acoustic Strings:

    I love the silk and steel. They make even cheap guitars sound wonderful. The sound is perfect and not quite as hard on the fingers as some steel strings do. Easy to play and sound EXCELLENT!!!

    These strings kick butt for fingerstyle.

    By New favorite strings

    from Jacksonville, FL

    Comments about Martin M130 Folk Guitar Silk and Steel Compound Wound Acoustic Strings:

    I use them on my Ovangkol Taylor, and they are a much better string than those coated strings that came on the guitar. Coated strings may last longer, butt they are way too tinny sounding. These Martin's are smooth.
