Martin M540 Phosphor Bronze Light Guitar Strings Review

This is a review for the Martin M540 Phosphor bronze strings. You can buy them in almost every music store, online, or at the official Martin music company website. In this review we talk about the strings feel, sound, and average life span.

In this review I will share my thoughts about the Martin M540 light phosphor bronze strings. These are one of the most popular brands of strings, and I have seen them in almost every music store I have ever been in, so they aren't very hard to find. These strings are normally priced around $12.49, but if you are lucky you can get them as low as $3.83 when they go on sale. As mentioned earlier these are light strings, so the gauge for each string is as follows:

1E .012,

2B .016,

3G .025,

4D .032,

5A .042,

6E .054.

Now keep in mind that these are light strings, not custom light or extra light, so they may not be as soft or flexible as you like. Below I'll explain the sound quality, life span, and overall feel of the strings to hopefully give you an idea about what they are like.

The feel and sound of the strings

I'll start with the sound of these strings. They are bright, loud, and have very nice sustain; perfectly suited for Bluegrass or Country music. The top three strings have a lovely bass to them to really give that country twang sound. The bottom three strings are not bronze but steel strings and they too have a nice strong sound to them but not to the point where they are overpowering. The strings are a bit stiff and rough and will cut into your fingers because they are phosphor bronze, so slides and bends aren't the easiest things to perform when using these strings. I've used these strings for fingerpicking, and although they were playable it was also a bit painful. If you are new to playing and you don't have calluses you may want to switch to a lighter gauge of guitar strings. However, if you already have well developed calluses or you will be using a pick most of the time, you will find the M540 phosphor bronze guitar strings perfect for strumming because they really do have a beautiful sound.

Should you buy them?

You should buy these strings if you do a lot of strumming or play music on the line of Country or Pop music because of the way they sound. The higher you go up in a string gauge the stiffer the strings will be. I didn't find them to be very good for Blues, Spanish music or Jazz because I found the strings a bit too difficult to perform the bends and slides that I needed, and the vibrato just didn't have the same feel for me because the strings were too stiff. There was also quite a bit of string noise when I would slide my finger across the strings, but I won't say that any of the above is neither a good nor a bad thing because some musicians prefer that feel and sound for their strings.

When I tuned the strings they stayed in tune. I didn't have problems with them slipping out of place or breaking on me like some cheaper brand of guitar strings tend to do. However, they do break easily if you try to tune them up passed their specified point because they aren't flexible enough for that kind of thing. If you do a lot of odd tunings like I do I would recommend a lighter guitar string gauge.

So, if you focus on strumming patterns like a lot of Pop and Country artists do than these strings will be perfect for you because they ring out loud, clear and strong and you really get that country sound when you do hammer-ons and Pull-offs. As for string life, I would say about three months- four at the max and then they lose their sound and feel. I noticed that they began to unravel near the sound hole where my pick struck the strings and they began to sound dull and dead. The strings also became way too stiff to perform the simplest of bends and Barre chords and after the six month mark I noticed my strings began to corrode and darken in color; I strongly recommend that you don't keep them on for six months. The price is reasonable, so if you need loud strings with good sustain, go out and give these strings a try.
