I just ordered a couple of sets . . .
I've heard about these new Martin Retro series guitar strings, after reading an article about Tony Rice and his preference for Monel (nickel) wrapped guitar strings. I was grazing around on the Martin site trying to get more info and came across this video.
I ordered several sets of the Tony Rice Signature version of these strings, since they are medium's and that's the gauge I play on my Martin D-18, J-40, and my Taylor GS Custom built. I will let you know what I experience in the next couple of weeks. I'll be recording a music video with some friends in the next few months as part of a volunteer project for the folks at the Hugworks Children's Network. I will need some time to figure out if these strings sound OK acoustically, and when plugged in to an amp or PA.
God's grace still amazes me . . . ><>
