Martin® Retro Acoustic strings are crafted from a long-lasting proprietary nickel-based alloy blend that mellows quickly to a warm vintage tone that brings out the unique, woody sounds in your acoustic guitar. Made in Mexico.
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. The new formula was perfected. 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.
