*Monel is 67% pure nickel, 30% copper and 3% of a combination of magnesium, zinc and other metals. Monel is naturally resistant to salt water (sweat), It feels great to the touch and tends to bring out more of the "earthy" tones of your guitar.
I only learned about Monel as an option about six months ago having started playing in the '70s when Monel was no longer a type. I tried another maker's Monel strings but was not fond of the feel so got a regular set from Curt Mangan and loved the tone and the feel. I went with these to go with a lighter gauge as an experiment on my small bodied acoustics and am very happy. I have one set left and am going to try them on a jumbo. I will have to order more.
I ordered a four pack of custom string gauge Monel sets. Vintage sound with modern production & service, ordered & to my door in less than a week. Exceeded expectations, Thanks!
