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.

Martin retro strings

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 .
