    Re: Strings for a Martin 2-15

    I'm pretty much in the same boat as Pops. 10-14-24- I might go as heavy as a 38 for the 4th string, but that would be the absolute maximum.

    Re: Strings for a Martin 2-15

    I have a Martin and while it is the bent top I use 10-36, which is the heaviest I would consider using. The 2-15 I would still not use heavier strings on. Others will know more about that I am sure.
