About 4 months ago I got a Rogue Classic Spider Resonator after playing electric guitar for about 4 years now. It's a great Resonator for the money. Just this weekend I replaced the stock strings with Martin M980 Resonator strings. Not only did this improve the sound tremendously, it also made playing this guitar even easier. Just replacing the strings was comparable to the first time I had my Strat set-up by a tech. This is the first set of strings I've put on this guitar since it was new so I can't compare these to Elixir's or D'Addario's but for the money you can't beat these strings. I'm glad I bought 2 sets because I will use these again!

Bought the steel guitar strings and nut to convert an old acoustic guitar to a slide guitar. Tricky fitting the nut to a fast neck, but applying tension evenly to the strings worked out fine even with the nut being wider than the guitar neck. Love the sound I get from this slide guitar now.
