              These strings do exactly what they say. Your guitars voice will never sound better. I love them on my Martin OM-15. These strings bring something special out of the mahogany.

                  Been playing various bronze strings for decades on my Martin OM - these Monel strings have a different and interesting sound. Also the timbre varies more than bronze as you move towards and away from the bridge. They seem to have a longer life for me and bend well too.

                      I bought these strings for my HD28V Martin. I like the tone and feel, makes it sound like a vintage instrument as it was meant to be.
