Making our own, our way.
Strings are far too important to the tone of a guitar to leave to someone else. Since 1833, our goal has been to make the best guitars possible–guitars people fall in love with over and over again. We believe that the strings, the last critical ingredient in the guitar making process, are the vocal cords of any guitar. That's why we make our own.
This is why we
Make our own
Find your tone.
Strings make a guitar come alive by giving voice to the wood. That's tone–something we've been perfecting since the beginning. We've been making guitars for nearly 200 years and strings for five decades. We know what strings need to do to make a guitar sing. You'll find a wide range of Martin strings that fit your instrument, playing style, and budget. You'll enjoy incredible tone no matter what you play. Because that's what it's all about.
