Great acoustic instruments require great strings and Martin SP Lifespan strings deliver. Superior Performance meets Long Life! Since 1833, C. F. Martin & Co., Inc. has been delivering the finest in acoustic instruments and accessories. As a part of C. F. Martin & Co. Inc., Martin Strings is dedicated to tone and performance. The Story Many players delay changing strings. We put up with dead strings to avoid the task. Coatings that extend the life of the string may change the tone and feel of the string to the point of making it a compromise - long life or natural tone. C. F. Martin & Co. Inc. worked with Everly Music to test their Martin SP strings with the Cleartone proprietary treatment. They were astonished with the result! The ultra-thin treatment repels dirt and grime that deadens strings. They noted no flaking and no loss of treatment due to playing. The tone out of the box was natural and bright. They found a treatment for long-life that did not compromise the natural tone or feel of their top selling SP string. Making the SP Strings String up with SP strings so you can stay in tune longer and play with confidence. Our SP Lifespan acoustic guitar strings start with our ulta-pure steel SP core wire giving you a perfect combination of tensile strength and response. We add bronze electroplating to protect and enhance the core wire. Their wraps are a perfect combination of metals to give you the warmth or brilliance you demand. Their custom wrapping technique ensures tight tolerances to gauge and tension. Manufactured in C. F. Martin & Co. Inc. facility, Martin SP acoustic guitar strings are crafted for tone and performance. From traditional brass ferrules to engineered lock twists, our raw materials and high quality standards deliver Superior Performance! Adding Long Life with Cleartone C. F. Martin & Co. Inc. believe that string vibration should be natural and unrestrained for the cleanest and liveliest tone. Their search for longer life strings led us to Cleartone. Some methods of coating a string tend to dampen the vibration of a string and degrade the natural tone. The Cleartone proprietary treatment creates a barrier to dirt and grime yet the treatment keeps the windings open to deliver a natural brilliant tone. Superior Performance meets Long Life!
