My New Go-To

I’m on my 2nd set, and as long as they continue to last an acceptable amount of time, they’re all I’ll buy now. I also use the normal tension for flamenco. Thank you for the recommendation Geoff!

Terrific sounding strings

My favorite strings for my guitar (Alhambra Mengual y Margarit serie C) are Hannabach Goldin. But, at that price ($35/set!) I can't justify using them as an everyday string. So, I've been using D'Addario EJ46 which, until I tried the Hannabach, seemed perfect. Thus began my search for a decently priced string that got me closer to the Hanabach sound ad a D'Addario price. I tried many that were no better or, in fact, worse sounding than D'Addario. Then I remembered that Geoff had included a string suggestion for this guitar, the Savarez Alliance 540J. I ordered a set and threw them on. After a week of breaking them in, I think I can offer my opinion, which is that they are exactly what I was looking for. Geoff said to me that the D'Addario set would be dull and bland by comparison, and this is very true. The Alliance set has far superior projection, and a color and depth to the sound that the D'Addario can't match. Is there a but? Of course there is. But, the Alliance seem to take longer to settle. In fact, ten days after putting them on, intonation is still fluctuating. They also feel very different than the other strings I've tried. They feel softer, and the basses are thinner. It's not a huge adjustment, but it is one. In the long run, it might be a plus, as my fingers are large and the thinner bass strings help keep me from buzzing. I play 3-3.5 hours a day, so I'm hoping I get a solid two months of playing out of them. If they don't hold up that long, then the price becomes a push, and the Hannabach will win out. Time will tell!

Wow Brilliant

Playing on an Alhambra p9. Great tonal balance between the base and treble. Harmonics are absolutely tremendous frets #7, 12, 20, 24 AND 28! - of course way off the fret board. Tambor and overtones are worthy of mentioning. They remind me of playing a Steinway while keeping the pure sounds of a nylon string classical guitar. The high tension may attribute some string noise from finger movement on the base strings but that could just be an adjustment of my technique to remedy. Great strings!

great strings!

Installed on an Alhambra 7fc CW Flamenco. Really brightened up the trebles. Kind of saved the guitar actually. I was considering returning it. The strings it shipped with I believe were LaBella Vivace. (The trebles were kind of purple) I don't know if the La Bella were just old, or just not right for this guitar, but the 540J Alliance High Tension Classical Guitar Strings really upgraded the guitar.

First Class All The Way !

These strings were recommended by Geoff at XGuitars, and I have to agree that they really do enhance the performance of my guitar. Especially the trebles, Bass response is improved as well. Great strings and great service from Geoff. Highly recommended!
