As soon as I run out of Elixir Polyweb 12s I'll try a set of Martin Retros. With Polywebs on my H-DR and week old 80/20 Martins on my duo partner's HD-28V, both guitars on stands, the tone and volume strumming them while listening to the projected sound is to my ear (and the others in the room), nearly identical (probably not true for tone to player while being held). I have a lower threshold for squeaks than most and the Polywebs excel in that area. But i really like fresh strings before an important gig, for fear of breakage, and the Polyweb habit seems wasteful.
