Better than expected

I have been an Elixir guy for years and decided to try different brands on my new Slope-D Lutz/EI Rosewood custom made by Roger Skipper. This is an amazingly complex sounding guitar and I liked the Elixirs but felt they were somewhat muted compared to the uncoated strings it came with. Sooooo I tried various strings including all the new copper alloys and whiz bang formulas. I was disappointed until I put the Retro strings on. Out of the box they sound great and have continued to sound really great over the 2 weeks they've been on. They are very soft on the fingers and have a very woody sound that really let the guitar shine. I enjoy playing with a lot of dynamics and this strings can go whisper to scream.
even woody tone easy to play decent price

Just put a set of these babies on my Martin HD 28 . So Far they are just as described and I am quite happy. It will be interesting to see how they mellow out. They bring out the true woody tone of my Martin and are easy to play as well.
Nice tone , inexpensive , easy to play
Nothing . Too early to tell !
