Martin Retro Monel Strings
Put these on my Martin 000-28 last night. I've never heard a guitar sound so good. Rich sound, plenty of volume and they seem to ring out for minutes. They stayed in tune almost immediately.

A Mixed Bag
Bought and installed these strings on my Seagull just last week. I like the sound of these strings alright. What I find distracting is the noise they make as I slide my fingers across the bass strings. Kind of reminiscent of the squealing you'd expect to hear at a pig farm. My search for my ideal acoustic strings will continue.

String Review
I have a 1938 Martin 000-18. After the neck was reset and the neck was re-fretted my luthier surprised me with these Martin Retro Strings.

The Retro string is a unique string and gives a sound which I will best describe as "strong." I tried 3 other sets on the guitar but came back to the Retros.

I would encourage folk and other musicians try these unique strings as part of your acoustic vocabulary.

Jazz old Rock these are the stuff. This is all I buy.
These are a little hard to tune but give you a bit more bass sound than the typical tinny crap. Well worth the time on an a acoustic.
