    This guitar does its best work with thr factory recommended D? Addario EJ45 Pro Artes: big sound but easy to play for a student guitar for a serious intermediate player.

    Perfect balance between trebles and basses, warm but also very clear 'Spanish' sound, excellent left hand vibrato

    I find the basses to be deep and powerful and I like the clear and warm tone of the trebles.

    I enjoy this company because Hannabach builds a bass string with long resonance and beautiful tone. The trebles are nice too for their feel and tone.

    Balanced sound with ringing trebles and resonant bases. Strings stay tuned reasonably well and are fairly durable.

    These strings combine all the qualities for a good equilibrium basses/trebles. They are powerful.
