Martin Luxe Kovar Nickel / Cobalt Acoustic Guitar Strings

Available at Acoustic Centre Melbourne

The Martin Luxe Kovar Acoustic Guitar Strings offer a distinctive and high-quality string option designed to enhance your playing experience and deliver exceptional tone. The Luxe Kovar strings feature a Superior Performance core combined with Kovar wrap wire, a nickel-cobalt alloy, which brings several unique benefits to your playing and sound.

Superior Performance Core: The Luxe Kovar strings are built around a Superior Performance core, which contributes to their overall playability, responsiveness, and tone.

Kovar Wrap Wire: The special feature of these strings is the use of Kovar wrap wire, a nickel-cobalt alloy. This material offers several advantages that contribute to the overall performance and longevity of the strings.

Corrosion Resistance: Kovar strings possess natural corrosion resistance. Unlike some other string materials, the composition of Kovar wrap wire doesn't react to the oils present in your skin. This inherent corrosion resistance helps the strings maintain their quality and longevity, allowing you to play them for extended periods without degradation in tone.

Clear and Balanced Tone: The Luxe Kovar strings are designed to provide a clear and balanced tone, enhancing the overall sound of your instrument. This tonal balance contributes to the clarity of each note, making your playing more articulate and expressive.

Enhanced Attack and Response: The strings are designed with voicing that enhances attack and response. This means your playing will have a quick and defined attack, and the strings will respond readily to your playing dynamics.

Ultra Comfortable to Play: Kovar strings have lower tension compared to some other materials, making them easier to fret. This lower tension contributes to greater comfort during playing, allowing you to play for longer periods and execute intricate techniques with precision.

Unique Tone: The unique composition of the Kovar alloy gives these strings a distinctive tone. They are brighter than Monel strings and warmer than Phosphor Bronze, providing a unique tonal character that can help your music stand out from the crowd.

Pairs Well with Magnetic Pickups: Kovar strings pair exceptionally well with guitars equipped with magnetic pickups. The tonal characteristics of Kovar strings accentuate the natural tone of your instrument while offering enhanced compatibility with pickups, resulting in a balanced and rich amplified sound.

Overall, the Martin Luxe Kovar Acoustic Guitar Strings are designed with meticulous attention to detail and a focus on delivering exceptional tone, comfort, and longevity. Their use of Kovar wrap wire sets them apart as a unique and versatile string option that can add depth and character to your playing and musical expression.

    String try out

    I thought I would try the new Martin Luxe Kovar strings on my Martin OM28, mainly because of their advertised lower tension and easier playability. I actually like them; their lower tension certainly makes it easier to play and string squeak is much less. One thing, and this may seem shallow but I kind of like the colour of bronze strings and these strings are a steely gray and just look odd on the guitar. Apart from that I would buy these again.
