Round Core


Monel has been around since the early 1900’s and consists of 67% Pure Nickel, 30% Copper, 3% of the magic juice that contains magnesium, zinc and other elements making Monel resistant to salt water (sweat). Monel also has a very unique “earthy” tone and is used on both acoustics and electric instruments. It has built in natural resistance to tarnish and corrosion yet it feels great to the touch and has its own unique tonal color. Monel provides a very rich tone on the neck pickup and this great little growl on the bridge pick up. For acoustic instruments it seems to bring out more the wood sound.

    Curt Mangan Monel roundcore guitar strings (light gauge)

    Love these strings! Put a set on my 1969 Martin 00-18 and they sounded fantastic from the get go. Prior to that I had a set of Martin Retro lights on it and I far prefer the CM roundcore Monels - better volume, nice balance tonally, the Martin Retros sound thin in comparison. Will definitely be buying more sets of these strings!
