    Product Description

    C.F. Martin crafted these fine Martin Tony Rice Signature Monel Acoustic Guitar Strings to the exact specifications of legendary guitarist, Tony Rice. Made with a long lasting nickel-based alloy, these strings quickly mellow to a warm vintage tone that brings out the unique, woody sounds in your acoustic guitar. ‘I never thought I'd see the day when I could put Martin Monel strings back on my D-28. Welcome back, old friend. I've missed you.’ - Tony Rice

    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. 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.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    As a giging musician, I was going through a set of coated strings (tried them all) every 4-5 shows. I'm still on my 1st set of monels after maybe 12 shows and they show little signs of wear other than slight corrosion on 1st & 2nd strings. My main reason for change outs though is of course tonal quality. These have maintained their brightness amazingly well. Hopefully Martin will start making them in various gauges in the future and I would I love to slap a set on my Martin vintage 12 string guitar someday. Highly recommend them however for seasoned guitar players as the gauge begins at .013.
