Martin Monel strings

Martin Monel Retro Strings

These strings deliver a crisp but mellow 1930's-style tone by using solid Monel winding wire (made from a copper/nickel alloy) rather than the usual copper-plated nickel winding wire. An extra benefit compared to plated wire: Solid winding wire is naturally corrosion reistant, so the strings last longer.
