Martin M-1400 Marquis Silk & Steel Folk Acoustic Guitar Strings
Marquis Silk & Steel folk acoustic guitar strings have an intermediate wrap of silk fiber between the core and the windings of the wound strings, plus all strings have additional silk wraps at the ball ends. Silk at the ball ends cushions the contact stress between the strings and the bridge, reducing wear on the bridge plate and pins, and mellowing out the overall tone. Silk wrap under the outer windings softens the overall sound of the stings, yielding a very mellow and pleasing tone. Marquis Sikl & Steel strings are made with tin plated steel core wires, wrapped with silver plated copper alloy windings. The plain strings are also tin plated, for long life and smooth playing.
Made with Martin's commitment to quality and precise manufacturing, M-1400 Silk & Steel Folk Acoustic guitar strings are high in value, low in cost, and long on satisfaction.
