Did you know that almost every Martin Guitar comes factory fitted with SP Lifespan strings?
Martin SP Lifespan strings with Cleartone proprietary technology provide a rich full tone with the added benefit of longer life. Lifespan strings start with ultra-pure steel SP core wire, which delivers a perfect combination of tensile strength and response. Bronze electroplating is added to protect and enhance the core wire, which is complemented by the wraps that bring the full, rich tone players demand. Finally, Martin’s custom wrapping techniques ensure tight tolerances to gauge and tension.
Martin SP sets are sent to Everly Music for treatment with Cleartone proprietary technology. This treatment provides the thinnest protection in the industry and does not flake or peel. The treatment protects both the wrap and core wire by repelling dirt and grime that can deaden a string. Wrap windings remain open and uncovered to permit natural vibration patterns. The Cleartone proprietary technology preserves and protects the natural rich full tone of the Martin SP strings. Superior Performance meets Long Life!
These strings really are are the next level in studio performance. Treated for long life, they repel dirt, grit and other environmental elements that can quickly alter the sound of your strings. The treatment is so incredibly thin, you won’t even know it’s there.
So the next time you play a box fresh Martin, chances are you’ll be hearing and feeling the sparkling clarity of Martin SP Lifespan strings. And that sparkle will still be there many playing hours later!
