    All about the tone and feel

    I am a former electric lead player who now plays more acoustic. The traditional light fit my "lead" style of playing perfectly. Playing a beautiful old Martin D28, the brightness perfectly balances the great big "bottom" sound of my guitar. Lastly, nothing ha a better feel than a new set of these strings. I am a fan for life!

    I play a wonderful old Martin D28. This guitar has such a big bottom to it, I have found that the phospor/bronze trad light are the perfect strings. Crisp bright highs and full, resonate lows. I also just love the feel of these strings, especially when they are new.
    I'm hooked and I can't play anything else!
