Retros are the original Nickel acoustic string all the way from the 1930s. Retro strings offer a uniquely mellow, yet crisp sound that allows your guitar's natural tonewoods to be heard. They are crafted with Monel, a solid nickel/copper wrap wire - not nickel-plated - meaning there is no chance for defects in the plating to allow for corrosion. Martin’s proprietary wrap wire is naturally corrosion resistant and it is incredibly strong. Martin also employ's a sophisticated winding process that controls the coupling between the core and wrap wire to maximize intonation.  

  • String Gauges: 012 .015 .025 .031 .041 .054
  • Martin's proprietary SOLID Nickel/Copper alloy blend
  • Provides for a reduced pick attack allowing the guitar's tone woods to be heard
  • Offers uniquely mellow, yet crisp, sound.

Not sure how they did it, but these strings provide such a crisp and clear clarity on the highs and still has the ability to maintain solid bass in my D-35. Didn't think I'd be switching from Elixirs to these.

These strings are great on a bright guitar. Tensile strength is low which makes for a slinky feel. If you play Elixirs or coated strings, probably not your bag. They have a nice, worn in feel to them. Stay in tune well and seem to last quite awhile.

Can't say enough about these on my martin x series. I have a omcxae and these retros really pair well with it. With that said I tried them on a BBT Taylor and while they sounded nice. I just think they're much better on the Martin hol. The reason I first wanted them was because I played a Martin d10jr in the store with these strings and really liked them. So I think it depends on the guitar. They were much better to my ear on d10jr than the Taylor . Even though their both spruce/ sapele acoustics. It's worth the money even to try them.
