These are the best strings that I have used on my 1993 Paulino Bernabe Imperial guitar (spruce top, Brazilian back and sides). I have tried at least a dozen different sets on this guitar (including some VERY expensive brands from Europe), but keep coming back to the Hannabach Silver Special. A very warm and powerful sound, nicely balanced. Yes, the D string seems to break earlier than on some other brands (hence the 4/5 rating), but if you change strings regularly this is not an issue. Of course, every guitar and every player is different, but if your guitar requires a solid tension to drive the top (D'Addario hard tension are too light to bring out the best in this guitar, and the basses are too bright), and you want a powerful sound, check these strings out. A bonus is that they are not outrageously expensive.
