    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.

    I primarily use this guitar to record and this set of strings bring out a clarity and purity of tone that I love. The control I get in the release of the string is fantastic and the way that this set is made brings out the supportive overtones which I love in my recordings.

    I prefer the Hard Tension Rectified Set for these guitars as stage instruments. This set of strings gives me the most robust bass response and crisp penetrating trebles that carry in a concert hall. I feel that I can get the most tonal color out of these guitars with the Rectified Set Hard Tension.

    The strings are very comfortable to play. Despite the pleasant tension they have the powerful sound of high tension strings. The sound can easily be formulated. The harmonics are very clear and the colors are unique!

    I like them because of their eveness, and I like strings to give a bit under my fingers.
