    It gives the necessary tension to the instrument (carbon 2nd and 3rd) providing greater sustain, sound strength and adjustment in the tuning. The 1st nylon string (high tension) offers a sweeter sound to the 'chanterelle', providing a more flexible 'sing'.

    Simply the best all-around string on the market. It's very playable, balanced, durable, loud, sets in fast, and very consistent: zero bum set over the years. The tone is in between the lyrical nylon and the bold carbon, it's really versatile. Beats string sets that cost twice the price easily.

    The main thing I love about Augustine Regal Blue is that it extracts what the instrument has at it's best; it enhances the guitar with a great palette of colors, finest tone and it has great projection and stability. It also offers the perfect "pressure" both on right and left hands, enabling to play with a great dynamics range.

    There is a creaminess and clarity of the Regal trebles that seem to match both my personal taste as well as the instrument I use. The basses sing beautifully and feel very firm. To me the Regal Blue set has a lot of character, and the Augustine Strings are the ones that enhance all the depth and expressiveness of the guitar sound.
