Worth a try

Kes1414, 07.05.2017
I tried them with a cheap all laminated guitar. I usually prefer mellow sound on my guitars, so martin retros were worth a try.

At the beginning it took a lot to break in and not sound harsh. Once settled I like them quite a lot. They have their own particular vintage vibe and warm sound.

I used them almost four months, so I think they are durable and last quite long, although at the end they were dull sounding.

But after experimenting I think that for MY guitar are better options.

Great Retro Sound.

Kenneth D., 09.08.2016
I've been using these for 6 months now and I've become quite attached to the sound. The sound is different if you're used to the sound of phosphor bronze and they sound their best, to my ears, after about 4 days playing. They do sound better for longer than conventional strings as well, which I like as they end up being quite good value. I like using them in a live situation as you don't get quite so many overtones so some of the mushy, boomy, feedback problems you get with an acoustic guitar are eliminated. For recording they are pretty good too. They don't seem to have some of the sustain or warmth of a phosphor bronze but there's something retro and honest in them that keeps me using them.

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
