I've been a D'Addario Light user for decades and would try every different brand over the years including coateds , but always went back to D's. recently I tried Martin's new Lifespan coated strings and I'm hooked. It took a great string to get me away from D'Addario - I'll still buy D's occasionally - but the new Martins are definitely worth checking out even at the higher price.

Thanks Marc. Have you tried Newtones or Cleartones, if yes whats your thoughts and what gauges are you using for fingerstyle?

(Sorry, my ipad just slip of my hands...)
So I originally used recommended strings...
As I evolved toward fingerstyle I tried a bit lighter string.
I used Élixir, Martin and D'Addario (plain third string)
If you do not change strings weekly, coated strings may be an option
Want Any more détail?
Regards, Marc
