OVERVIEW

Three full sets.

Guages: 13-17-24-32-42-56

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 guitar.

Retros are the original Nickel acoustic string – the real deal – all the way from the 1930s. Retro strings offer a uniquely mellow, yet crisp, sound that allows your guitar’s natural tone woods to be heard, not overshadowed. They are crafted with Monel, a solid Nickel/Copper wrap wire - not nickel-plated - meaning there is no chance for defects in the plating to allow for corrosion.

Instead, Martin’s proprietary wrap wire is naturally corrosion resistant and it is incredibly strong. They also employ a sophisticated winding process in the making of our Retro String that controls the coupling between the core and wrap wire to maximize intonation.

Martin Retros are the real deal. Not an imitation. With Martin Retros, you get one tough set of strings that will last a long time and give you true, consistent tone that sounds like nothing else on the market.


Three sets.

Comments about Martin Retro Acoustic Guitar Strings Medium Gauge - 3 Pack:

These or tony rice monels are my favorite strings on my d18. These are a little heavier gauge on some of the strings, nice over all sound no jangle tinny sound like pb or bronze.

Didn't measure up. Don't like them on my Martin J-40.

Comments about Martin Retro Acoustic Guitar Strings Medium Gauge - 3 Pack:

I was hoping to remove some of the ringing I hear from D'Addario strings. Didn't work. I down tune one whole step so that I can use arrangements for tenors and still sing them. Went to heavy strings but they are too hard on my fingers and they still ring. When I tune up to concert pitch, the problem goes away. Clearly, this is really not a product judgement, but a misapplication.

My favorite Martin strings

Comments about Martin Retro Acoustic Guitar Strings Medium Gauge - 3 Pack:

These strings sound great on mahogany guitars (not so much on rosewood). This gauge works very well on my Martin Dreadnought Jr (sapele back and sides with spruce top). They last a long time and the price is right!
