[500AJ]
  • By: Jevgenijs Klimovics
    Excelent strings!!! Very clear, bright and loud sound! And realy, realy long lasting, even basses! Guitar's sound transforms to better side! Realy classical sound, like Chopin's piano in high :)

    I trieded the carbon strings for the first time. It takes some time to get used to them, but there is not so terable difference in playing feel between carbon and high tension nylon, just maybe it is harder to control sound tonality (like vibrato, rubato and so on) on carbon trebles, expecialy on the 1st string.

    CONSUMPTION
    Basses: liked very-very much! Extremaly long lasting, enough deep, loud and long sounding!!! Seems the best I ever tried!!!
    Trebles: very clear, bright and loud sounding, not harder to play than hard tension nylon. A little bit problem in 1st string - too much bright sound in my personal opinion (but I use spruce top guitar), but very good for 2nd and even 3rd. Also it is harder to control sound tonality on carbon (seems at all carbon, not only Savarez set) then on nylon, takes time to get used.

    -- 10 from 10 for basses
    -- 8 from 10 for playing feel (-2 only on trebles: harder to control tonality than on nylon)
    -- 10 from 10 for 2nd and 3rd treble
    -- 8 from 10 for 1st treble (-2 personal view on too much brightness in sound)
    -- 9 from 10 for sounding at all (-1 just becouse nothing is ideal :))
    -- 10 from 10 for manufacturer quality

    --and 10000 from 10 for "Strings By Mail"!!! :)

    Good sound, but the strings keep detuning constantly!

    Just pust this set of strings on my Cordoba GK Studio Negra. OMG! The guitar's sound was transformed. The basses are bassier and the trebles are bell like with sustain out of this world. I really like the high tension and thinness of the treble strings. Some had stated it takes some getting used to but not for me, it was like these strings were made for my fingers. I absolutely love this set. I think everyone should try these strings before any others.

    FOR BASSES only. These are undoubtedly my favorite bass strings. I have tried La Bella 2001 which were very weak, d'addarios which seemed like nothing special, augustines blacks which died extremely fast... Why I love these basses:
    -Louder than any other bass I've tried
    -Used them for over 1 month and still maintains its lively sound
    -Deepest bass I've tried thus far and really brings out the low end
    -Nice ringy and punchy tone to it. Some may not like this quality but I personally like it because it makes the string sound alive rather than dull. Some might prefer a rounder mellower tone however
    -They are high tension, but they are surprisingly easy to press.

    Haven't tried the trebles yet.
