Default Looking for old Martin 4100 light guage SP strings

I love these strings ( Martin SP 4100 lights) and have used them on my main guitar for years. Suddenly Martin changes them. The old ones had brass looking 1st and 2nd strings. Anybody got some laying around they would sell reasonably? Thanks.

Default Martin SP

Just so happens i've got 6 sets of SP 4100, that I've had for about 5 years. just didn't do it for me. I also have 6 sets of Mediums, SP 3100 and 3 sets of SP+ medium, SPLUS 4200. I'm happy to sell all, or just the lights, your call. not sure what to charge, but I'm open to suggestion. Let me know what you think. Joel

I'll warn you that I opened a couple of new packs recently and there was corrosion on those brass looking strings. I might have some I could sell you, but the risk would be yours.

You might try calling Guitar Center. While the strings are out of stock online, apparently, some stores still have them in stock

I love them too. 43 sets left in my string inventory. I found an old set in the old box in a guitar case a couple of months back. Amazingly they were just fine. I do have more faith in the sealed bags though.
