I have not used the RED brand strings...right now I am pretty happy with what I use on the guitars I have in my normal rotation...but I have a few I can experiment on!  I have a New York made 1948 Epi archtop that could use new strings...there's a start! Don't know how to get the message direct back to him either!  Edward

Howdy. I'm not sure if everyone got the note asking a question about Red strings but I've been trying to figure out how to reply. Can't do it by e-mail; also not in my in-box at my home page for this site, yet I did receive a message about it. So I'm posting this.

For those who are not familiar with these, they are copper bronze strings. I have not tried them on any of my Martins but have used them on my archtop (extra light, 11-52). The strings appear to be bright and clear. They don't have a lot of volume, but I'm trying to separate their performance on my archtop with a standard guitar so I don't know it if's just my archtop or the strings. I do know that they sound better than other strings and they have more volume than other strings I've used on my archtop so there is a good chance I'll stick with them.

I figure if they do that good of a job moving the stiff top of an archtop, they should be able to push lots of air in a soundhole guitar. They do, however, have a different sound (not as warm).

Thanks, m

Put some songs on my page recorded playing my 0-16 NY. Nothing too technical. These are my take on Christmas.

'Renaissance' album release 14.12.2011. Comprises 12 self-penned electro-acoustic solo instrumentals, all played on a Martin OMC-15E fed through a Fishman Aura imaging unit, Edirol UA25EX interface>iMac. Using Logic Express 8 to record, and add subtle use of effects. (Flange and reverb mostly). Tracks mastered by digitalangelmastering.co.uk - who I can recommend. Comments appreciated, and orders even more so :)

Wow...I got the crappy dial-up and it loaded fine, if you don't mind aging visibly as it plays.

Hi All,

I use a Mac and saw the video (very interesting) just fine. With that said....my wife was trying to watch some YouTube videos last night and got nothing. It ended up her needing to up-grade her flash player (which is Adobe Acrobat)

Hmmm, are you using a MAC or Windows machine. I'm using Windows (XP) on this one, (I have 8 computers, some with XP, VISTA and Windows 7) but no MACs.

I tried with FireFox and Windows Internet Explorer and both browsers give me that option. But it's actually Adobe Flash player that's giving me options not the browser come to think about it.

:-)
