C. F. Martin & Co. Clapton's Choice™ Guitar Strings
"When I play acoustic guitar, whether in a studio or on stage, these Martin Strings are my choice. They deliver the sound that I demand." - Eric Clapton
Nazareth, PA - August 15, 2005 - C.F. Martin and Company is proud to introduce the first sets in a new line of Artist Choice acoustic guitar strings, Clapton's Choice Phosphor Bronze. The Clapton's Choice Phosphor Bronze guitar strings have a distinctively clear, warm tone with a hint of brightness that can highlight the subtleties of any player's style. Live or in the studio, these strings deliver the kind of performance expected by Eric Clapton.
With the introduction of these guitars and his increased time playing Martins, Clapton noted the superior strings that Martin manufactures for its superbly crafted instruments. The Clapton's Choice Phosphor Bronze is the result.
The Phosphor Bronze Light, MEC-12 Light, is ideally suited for auditorium, orchestra models, and other smaller body sized guitars and fingerstyle playing.
