Monel strings on a FG-460

Unread post by Oldtickers »

Has anyone tried Martin Monel strings on a FG-460 either 12 or 6 string?

I had a set of PB on my 12 and it was too jangly, even for me as I have several 12 string guitar, acoustic and electric.
The monels "should" tone it down and I was checking if anyone else had tried it.

I don't think I have tried those particular Martin strings Ed. I tend to move between Elixir and D'Addario. Although I do have a couple of guitars strung with Rotosound which are "OK" but I think their electric strings are better than the acoustic.

I was thinking of giving the Martin Tommy Emmanuel Signature 12-54 Acoustic Strings a go on the next string change and see how they are.
