I had not heard of Monels before Curt's strings, and being so impressed by the nickelwounds I shot him a message and asked about putting Monels on my 1938 Gretsch Orchestra 30 that is a family heirloom. He answered me right away, and didnt try to turn me away from other strings, simply said why they are good strings for this guitar. He hit the nail on the head, They have a warm earthy tone (it is hard to explain other than they have a fresh big sound to them on an 83 year old guitar. They brought new life to it). The quality of the Monels I noticed right away, tight even wraps and no discoloration that I have seen from other brands, and not still at all when I first had them on, almost like i had been playing them for a few hours already. Well done! These will be on my Gretsch for many years to come! Don Hinshaw Guitars/Lead Singer - Defining 13 Cortland, NY
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.
