OVERVIEW

Bring out your guitar's true voice.

Guages: .013 .016 .026 .034 .044 .056

Martin’s proprietary Nickel/Copper alloy blend wrap wire provides for a reduced pick attack and allows the guitar’s tonewoods to be heard, not overshadowed. It offers a uniquely mellow, yet crisp, sound. Martin’s wrap is a solid Nickel/Copper blend, not nickel-plated, meaning there is no chance for defects to allow for corrosion. Martin's proprietary wrap is naturally strong and corrosion-resistant, so much so that it has been used in the propeller of dreadnought battleships and various machinery and tooling applications.

I did not expect these strings to be so well rounded for nearly any style of music. These are now my favorite Martin string, although I have long liked Martin Marquis phosphor-bronze strings. But I think these will work on many different types of guitars besides dreadnaughts. I put my first set on an L-1 style guitar and was quite pleased. I received two more sets in the mail today, and one set will go on a dreadnaught for sure. I'll write another review for that set, but I'm looking forward to the experience already!

Not for me, but you might like 'em,

I tried these monel strings on my Martin DSL2 and D-35. In both applications I found them a"little dull" sounding.

        These strings are a vast improvement on Elixir. They're also much cheaper. I think I'll be playing these for a long time to come.

                      They don't sound like the pb's everyone has been used to for years, so give them a chance on their own merit. Transparent - you're hearing your guitar, not your strings.
