Great Retro Sound.

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.

Ideal for fingerpicking my OM-21

I used 4200s (or the Darco equivalent) on my OM-21 for years after testing all the usual string candidates - D'Addario, Elixers, 80/20, 92/8 - but when I heard about the Retro strings I was curious enough to give them a try.
I'm glad I did. These are very different than phosphor bronze strings. They do not have the aggressive metallic brightness of those alloys. They settle in after a few hours of playing and then perform consistently for a very long time. I used to change the 4200s at least once a month; but the Retros seem to sound find for 3 months or more. Even when I change them, more because I get nervous about leaving strings on that long rather than the sound - the new set (once settled in) doesn't sound much different than the old.

The tone is not so crashingly bright as phosphor strings. If you like that, then these are not for you. These are a bit smoother, more restrained, very balanced. I'll be staying with these for now. Perfect for the fingerpicking and occasionally strumming that I do.
