Decent quality strings but not my kind of tone.
TCSMD 24.10.2021
I was looking forward to testing these strings. Normally I like strings with a warm, "vintage" style tone so I had high hopes for these Martin Retro Monels.

Unfortunately I didn't like them very much. I was expecting them to have a warmer, mellower tone.

At first they were extremely bright. Not in the same way as a bright set of phosphor bronze or 80/20 strings. It was more like a fizzy thing in the high frequencies that somehow seemed disconnected from the rest of the tonal spectrum. This nasty fizz disappeared after a couple of hours of playing but the tone was still far too metallic sounding for my taste. Once the strings was broken in it wasn't a particularly bright tone but more like a "tin can", honky kind of tone. Not my cup of tea. I gave them a week of regular playing before I gave up and installed other strings instead.

To be fair they were at least different from any other strings I've tried but sadly they weren't for me.

Great strings, especially if you're looking for a more vinateg/mellow sound
Lynn 20.02.2015
These strings have a vintage sound - if you are looking for a more modern tone with lots of sustain and overtones these may not be your first choice.

I have used them on several guitars, the latest being a Martin with an Adirondack top and Rosewood back and sides. The guitar has forward shifted scalloped bracing and though it never sounds truly muddy, the overtones can get in the way.

These strings took that bright too-much-sustain edge off the sound. When flatpicking (which is in my opinion what these strings were made for) the individual notes ring out loud and clear. When strumming, a bit of richness was lost but not in a bad way, the bass was loud and clear and my guitar now sounds like a pre-war D-28. Considering they cost less than £6.00, I'd say that was a bargain.

I also used them on a too-lightly built spruce rosewood 000 that was pure mud unless played fingerstyle with the flesh of your fingers. It got rid of all the unwanted overtones and was the deciding factor in keeping the guitar.

I think these would really shine on a smaller mahogany guitar, to get an authentic bluesy sound.

The strings are very light on the fingers, they bend with ease. I am going to buy a few more packs - they might not suit all makes or styles of guitar but when you find one they work well on, it's pure magic.

Great for acoustic guitar with magnetic pickup

Been trough a lot of different string sets trying to find the best strings for my acoustic when amplified. These produced clearly the best sound so far. Very comfortable to play as well. Recommended.

Very fast shipping by Thomann, even during these trying days.

Put these strings on my Fiesta Red Fender Paramount dreadnought acoustic and the effect of these strings is sparkling and phenomenal! Also suitable for guitar players who prefer multi finger play and finger picking. The strings feel very comfortable and the sliding sounds give the sound the necessary flashback to the old days.

I can certainly recommend these strings.

Thanks for reading and keep on makin’ music 🎵
