Hummingbird/CW and monel strings

Recommended Posts

I like them on my rosewoods, and still prefer ej’s on my mahogany Gibson’s.  I have a Tony Rice set on my J-50 now and am looking forward to getting PB’s back on it.

I've been using Martin 80/20s on my Standard HBird, since switching from PBs last year.  Haven't tried Retros on it, even though I do like them on several other mahogany backed guitars: D18, J-45. I'm happy with the sound of the Bird with 80/20s so haven't felt the urge to experiment further...

I put them on this evening... I played a little, and they sound good.

lets see them settle in a bit. I bet I like them.  I really liked D’Adarrio  Nickel Bronze on my old Hummingbird Vintage, but it’s been a while.

Is that the type same as D'darrios nickel bronze? If so, I like them a lot. I put them on my old J-45, and it makes for a very, very, dry and crisp tone. Perfect for recording.
