first off hello i am more of an electric guy and need help figuring what strings would work best for my classicals.

i went to the top in the string thread on the sticky, but i wasn't seeing a whole lot of on forum, info about classicals, and it was more for acoustics.

i have 6 yamaha nippon gakki classicals, as well as a high-end pre WWII italian classical. i have had them from anywhere for five or more years ago to a week ago. i haven't ever paid more than $100 for one three were under $40, i just like the history and i think they sound pretty good.

so what would you recommend for strings?

i was recommended these http://www.musiciansfriend.com/accessories/daddario-ej45-pro-arte-classical-guitar-strings-3-pack from a salesmen and i am not sure if i really trust him.

thank you gentlemen.

Hehe.... Can't give much advice; I know there are as wide a variety of classical strings as there are steel.
You can get "high tension" strings, for instance.

I have a Yamaha "guitarlele", essentially a 6-string tenor uke. I put a set of D'Addario Pro-arte guitar strings on the thing and noticed a considerable improvement in sound.

thanks. i am guessing this sub-forum is more acoustic than classical?



i think i am just going to throw that pro arte on. 3 sets for $15 isn't bad. the Augustine's mentioned are $10 a pack, thats double what the three pack (divided per pack).

i am sure they will last forever with me. i havn't restrung any of them and i have had some for 5+ years, and who knows how long the previous owner had on before.

thanks

Actually, a classical guitar IS an acoustic guitar. But yeah, most of the people here play steel string flat tops.
