    Recommended by Matt at SBM. They produce a warm, mellow tone similar to my fanned braced guitars, while preserving the volume and sustain characteristic of lattice braced guitars.

    Powerful, crystaline trebles that really hold up and sing out (I play in a 20+ member guitar orchestra). Very nice tone on bass strings, but I am addicted to the carbon trebles!

    I love balanced guitars, for they allow better legato and more musically satisfying fingering options. This is the best combination I got so far: a well balanced guitar with well balanced strings.

    Royal Classics Silk carbon provides the sustain, power and balance appreciated by carbon strings lovers, with a warmer sound compared to other carbon strings.

    Used with the2Mic-Endpin Pickup. After years of playing Mari Flamenco strings, the La Bella 2001's are a close match. Long lasting and great response. Actually, Daniel Mari was a member of the La Bella family. He passed away 12/24/2020 at 93.

    Personally I find this more balanced. La bella has lower overall tension so HT turns out to be similar to EJ45.

    Good for the age of the guitar, consistent sound, tone, and projection across the board.

    I decided to try the Ramirez strings after reading rave reviews. The recommended tension was normal, which is what I got initially, and loved them! Definition, separation, quick stabilization once put on were outstanding. As time went by, I started wishing for a little more power and punch. Tonight, I put on the HT Ramirez set, and it hit the spot. The action is still low without buzzing, but the power and projection are noticeably better. Great Ramirez strings for a great Ramirez guitar - a no brainer IMHO.

    With this particular set of Savarez, the strings sustain longer than any other set or brand. The long sustain is particularly noticeable in the trebles. Tone is equal to or better than any other brand and vibrato easier to produce and more pronounced than on any other brand.
