So since I bought a Martin Guitar I decided to give these a shot since they came on the guitar. I loved the sound and tone of these strings but it seems that their quality is quite poor. It’s seems like another string breaks every month. I have been through 5 sets of these within the last 6 months. I put them on both my Martin and Fender acoustics. The worse part is that I have yet to break a high E string or B string. It is always the wound strings that break. I have broke E,A,D,G strings on both guitars . Also they always seem to break in different locations. Had them break at bridge, middle of fret board, nut and at tuner peg. I was using Elixir strings before I went to these and would get six months out of those before I changed them out without breaking any. Looks like I am going back the them. I would have expected much better quality from Martin since their guitars are amazing but i have to say their strings are not even close.
