Martin Retro Monel Medium Gauge Acoustic Strings - 13-56

Retros are the original Nickel acoustic string – the real deal – all the way from the 1930s. Retro strings offer a uniquely mellow, yet crisp, sound that allows your guitar’s natural tone woods to be heard, not overshadowed.  They are crafted with Monel, a solid Nickel/Copper wrap wire - not nickel-plated - meaning there is no chance for defects in the plating to allow for corrosion. Instead, Martin’s proprietary wrap wire is naturally corrosion resistant and it is incredibly strong.   Martin also employ a sophisticated winding process in the making of our Retro String that controls the coupling between the core and wrap wire to maximize intonation.  Martin Retros are the real deal. Not an imitation. With Martin Retros, you get one tough set of strings that will last a long time and give you true, consistent tone that sounds like nothing else on the market.

Martin MM13 Retro Monel Vintage Tone 13-56 Medium Acoustic Strings

I've used sets of these for quite a while now and these are my faves. Not perhaps to everyone's taste, they lack the 'attack' of bronze or phosphor bronze and have a more muted or sort of 'worn-in' sound. However...on a mahogany bodied Martin or on a National reso, they sound BRILLIANT for blues and slide. Great for an authentic sound of earlier American folk, blues picking styles. Being made of Monel they also look cool, they're silver. And they appear to have a very good longevity, despite my constant changes of tunings that I use.

I asked for this order to be combined with a special order slide to save postage.Due to poor internal communication this was not done...strings arrived but still await staus of slide,which has been paid for. Prior to this experience it would have been 4 or possible even 5 stars.
