Lovely rich tone to the Retro strings. Well with the money
A more consistent than usual tonal profile over the life of the wound strings.
Goes nice warm tone with that played in sound straightaway.
I really like these strings. Not sure they'll help me with my actual playing but the sound is great.
martin strings are always a safe bet
Ideally suited to Martin 0017, authentic retro sound.
I have not yet used these strings but when I do so, I will let your agent know my opinion. Please disregard the three stars for now.
Good mellow tone, ideal for general playing.
Ideal vintage sound on small bodied Martin.
These may not suit every guitar, really great on some, worth a try.
Retro indeed - I haven't used monel strings on an acoustic guitar for decades! Playability and tone both excellent on my handmade dreadnought. I am more than happy with these strings and will buy again.
sometimes used to use nickel strings when learning guitar decades ago and have always used them on the banjo . Didn't notice when they went off the radar and didn't pay it any heed but recently noticed several companies now making nickel wound (or in this case monel which is an alloy comprised of a bigger part nickel and a smaller part copper) for acoustic guitar . Have now tried several brands and these ones seem to suit my 1931 Gibson L1 best . They have more range on the lows and bite on the trebles than bronze or phosphor bronze and the lower tension to gauge ratio means less worry about stress on a lightly built or vintage guitar , so no need to lose tone by going for a very light or low tension string . It is interesting to note that in the early Gibson catalogues monel 'mona steel' strings are the only ones listed until the introduction of bronze marketed as 'heavy gauge'. Tried swapping back to bronze but they sounded awful after getting used to nickel .
