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: 013 .017 .024 .032 .042 .056
  • 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.

Great Strings, great sound.


I play this on my Epiphone. It sounds great and old school fifties, sixties. I really like the feel on the fingers and sound these strings produce. I would recommend these strings to anyone who wants more of an alternative sound than most strings, which may sound too bright. These strings are in the middle and don't sound too bright, and the sound of the notes are more pronounced and melodic than most strings too. They are easy on the fingers as well which makes it more pleasurable to play.
