    I like the fullness of the tone in the bass strings and the volume and clarity in the trebles. The very good balance across the register is also a very positive feature of these strings.

    Nice even sound. Projects well. Really like the feel of the g string which is thick and solid.

    Hannabach strings sound better (more balanced and warmer) than the Savarez Corum Alliance Normal Tension on this Hernandez spruce top guitar. The Savarez are just too bright in the treble.

    Good price, rich bass strings, amazingly strong G-string, sweet yet clear E string, not as edgy as some carbon strings.
