    Classical Guitars built with German Spruce often take a long time to open up and develop tonal power, clearly slower than Cedar tops. I use these strings to compensate and obtain a powerful and clear tonal range.

    I do enjoy very much playing on my receptive Contreras Guitar with the vibrant though well calibrated for my hands, Alliance Savarez 540R. These two are a great match for me to enjoy music and feel secure when I am going on stage.
