OVERVIEW

Tony worked hand-in-hand with Martin to recreate his favorite strings.

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

Legendary Bluegrass artist, Tony Rice, played Martin Monel strings loyally on Clarence White's 1935 D28 until they became unavailable in the 1970's and he has been missing them ever since. The talented sound engineers at Martin Guitar 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." Tony's favorite 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 sounds of the guitar to pour from the sound hole, unaltered, from the very first strum.

      Comments about Martin Tony Rice Signature Acoustic Guitar Strings (013-056):

      Had them on an old D-35 and they sounded really good. A bit too mellow for my liking, but they still sounded great. They also lasted quite long.

          I like Martin Strings anyway. But these bring out an old Bluegrass guitar sound. My guitar never sounded so good. The strings look like they would go on an electric instrument. The sound is great. Must have!

          Comments about Martin Tony Rice Signature Acoustic Guitar Strings (013-056):

          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!
