DX1AE Macassar Burst

Tone and tradition in a tough, stylish package. Solid Sitka spruce set off by a vintage sunburst finish for a look bold enough to match the timeless sound of X-bracing and the body shape that started it all: the Dreadnought. Versatile and responsive Fishman Sonitone electronics are discreet so you can shape your sound anywhere, anytime.

Magnifico Premium Classical Strings

Martin’s premium classical strings are tonally superior to nylon and the proprietary synthetic material emulates gut strings that have been around for centuries. Magnifico strings, developed exclusively with Aquila, offer precise intonation and exceptional tuning stability. Unlike Martin’s standard classical strings, which have a ball-end, Magnifico classical strings will be offered only with the traditional tie-end. The premium line will debut with two models: Hard Tension (M165) and Normal Tension (M265).


Martin Premium Ukulele Strings

Martin is known for making exceptional ukuleles for over 100 years and now the company is proud to unveil a premium line of ukulele strings at Winter NAMM 2018. Developed exclusively with Aquila, the new strings provide precise intonation and clear, balanced tone with exceptional sustain and projection. Martin’s premium ukulele string line will be launched with three models to suit every ukulele enthusiast: Soprano (M605), Concert (M610) and Tenor (M625).
