I just installed a set of the TR strings (set MTR13). Initial impression… they are different. It’s much warmer (and less bright) than my typical PBs (or 80/20s). They are on my D18 and it makes it sound like a cross between a D28 and a D18. I think I like them on mahogany (I am doubting I would like them on Indian rosewood… on Madagascar it might be an interesting combo). I will say if I needed to change strings on the same day as recording, these wouldn’t be a bad choice. I like to get 3 hours or so on PBs before recording, but these sound pretty usable right out of the gate (grain of salt alert, I haven’t recorded them… I am just guessing)
I have all of 10 minutes time spent with them, so take this initial review for what it’s worth. I’ll post more as I live with them over the following weeks. I’ll say this much, if you want to get a different tone, these are worth a shot. I think they were under $7.00 from Elderly.
