anyone had any experience with these folks? i am completely frustrated with the price of guitar strings and have been looking for ways to save money on them. i bought 4 sets of the phospher bronze in medium. they are said to be martin strings, but with no packaging? i wonder if theyre those darcos? or maybe the marquies?

I have used them in the past. I don't remember particulars, which I take to mean they delivered quickly and the price was right.

I have purchased several sets from them. Good, simple transaction via the web. Strings arrived very quickly. No problems at all.

I am sorry, when I read your post, I was thinking of, not string this! My bad. I have never dealt with them before. :o

There was a thread on this company here before (maybe about 5-6 months ago).  I don't remember what was said.  I haven't searched it myself but you may want to try.

Ok, i got my strings in from and they are absolutely awesome! i got the pb mediums and they sound/feel incredible! i was using john pearse pb bluegrass strings, but i think these actually sound a bit better. they are brighter and since theyre true mediums, the sustain and volume is a bit more. i am very please and will be buying all my strings from these folks now. check em out.  B)
