Martin Titanium Core: Strong and Flexible Guitar Strings

In the guitar world, Martin's name is synonymous with quality, and their new Titanium Core guitar strings show further proof of why this is.

Innovative guitar strings

Any guitarist knows that strings start to show signs of wear over time. That's why Martin is continually on the lookout for new materials and techniques that enable them to produce guitar strings of superior quality. Their new Titanium Core series is a direct result of this desire to constantly improve. This series of strings has a patented winding process that offers unsurpassed playing comfort and stability combined with outstanding resistance to corrosion.

The process

Martin uses a slow, methodical, mechanical process that ensures the nickel windings are wrapped around the round titanium core in a highly consistent and accurate way. Titanium is not only extremely strong, it's more flexible than steel. This means that your fingers don't have to work so hard to press the strings down, which improves the playing comfort. Nickel is a material that is naturally resistant to corrosion, which means that these strings retain their sound better and last much longer than conventional strings do.

Tension instead of gauge

One of the most interesting things about Martin's Titanium Core strings is that they don't refer to them by the string's gauge but by their tension. When buying a set, if you prefer light gauge strings, then you should buy the Titanium Core light gauge string set. It might be unconventional, but it's extremely simple too.
