At last! We are now carrying the new Martin Retro Monel strings. Legendary Bluegrass artist, Tony Rice, played Martin Monel strings religiously until they became unavailable in the 1970's and he has been missing them ever since. The talented sound engineers at Martin Guitars 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.' The great 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 sound of the guitar to pour from the sound hole, unaltered, from the very first strum. These strings have become the no 1 string of choice for the staff here at the AC and we can't wait for you to try them! $15.
