    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.

    The strings are neutral in there tonality and allow the color of the guitar to present itself.

    Great sounding basses; thick sound/feel to 2nd & 3rd; warmest top string.

    I've been using Augustine strings for at least 10 years now, and have made four full length recordings using Regal Blues. Additionally, I've currently been experimenting with the new Paragon carbons with my 2016 Greg Smallman, and they seem like a great match! I'll likely record a solo record with this combination next summer.

    Augustine Regals are the only string that responds to my fingers needs. They have remarkable sustain, highlighting and expanding the entire tonal and dynamic palette of the guitar.

    Best combo for a loud, naturally dark-sounding cedar top. Warmth, clarity.
