Martin Tony Rice Signature Monel 13-56 Medium Acoustic Strings MTR13

  • Legendary Bluegrass artist, Tony Rice, played Martin Monel strings loyally on Clarence White's 1935 D28 until they became unavailable in the 1970's and he has been missing them ever since.
  • The talented sound engineers at Martin Guitar worked hand-in-hand with Tony to bring back to life his favorite sound — Martin Monels.
  • When the new formula was perfected, and Tony put them on his guitar, he said "Welcome back, old friend."
  • Tony's favorite thing about Martin Monels is that they don't change the timbre of the guitar.
  • The compound, nickel-based alloy mellows very quickly to allow the natural, woody sounds of the guitar to pour from the sound hole, unaltered, from the very first strum.
  • Gauges - 13 / 16 / 26 / 34 / 44 / 56

Earthy and Articulate - last forever.

I love these strings. I have them fitted to an old Art & Lutherie dred (cherry with spruce top). They are not rich sounding and they do not have a lot of overtones, so many players won't like them. However, for bluegrass style flatpicking and rhythm playing they are wonderful - a real workhorse string set. Lots of punch and distinct articulation on flatpicked runs - with a very earthy tone. If you have wonderful tone woods and play lush fingerstyle then look elsewhere. But if you flatpick on an old cannon then these strings will give you that machine gun attack you hear on old recordings. They last for ages too. And are just downright fun to play!!!

Love them - earthy tone - last ages

Great strings. Have then on an old Art & Lutherie dred - cherry laminate back and sides, spruce top. Very earthy sound, limited overtones so fundamental punches out. Not rich or bass heavy like PB, much more of an old classic tone. Very easy to control. Last for ages. Great for bluegrass/country.
