What I like most about these strings is they last a long time. Long. They sound good for a long time. The bases produce gorgeous tones, very harmonically resonant presence; fat. They’re soft to the touch. They look good, too. They tend to stay in tune during temperature variations. The trebles are not quite as bright as some others, but still sound good. Like most nylon trebles, they change tune with temperature variations. Overall, these are one of the best sounding nylon string sets I have tried, and their longevity is a real plus if you don’t like changing strings all the time. This rating is based on using a high-quality, Spanish-made classical guitar with solid rosewood sides, back and cedar top. Your results may vary.Read more
D-Addario EJ45 normal tension classical strings are a standard with Augustin and Savarez. While not being great, they have a great price and are very decent sounding. PROS: Plenty of warmth. Responsive and pleasing dynamic range. They have a clarity and articulation, when new. 🙂 Cheaper strings seem to break in faster and therefore seem to lose clarity faster. CONS: They do not sound ‘bright’ or project ‘volume’. Not for Flamenco, for example. Great for folk and baroque! BOTTOMLINE: Unless your an accomplished, performing classical guitarist, these strings should suit you just fine. Go upscale Savarez if you like, but the cost differences add up over 50 sets.Read more

The sound quality of these strings is good, but I’m a little suspect of their durability. As the photo shows, the A string broke. I know that happens, but usually while you are playing the guitar. I left on vacation a month ago. Upon my return, I was surprised to find the string broken. They’ve not been on the instrument that long, and I don’t play it all that often. And, I’m not an aggressive player. It could have been a faulty string from the manufacturer, but I can’t give these a ringing endorsement. I’m thinking of taking off the 6th string and making it a big ukulele.
I’ve been a D’Addario string user for a long time. Their electric and acoustic strings are just fantastic. So, when I bought a classical guitar (which needed strings asap), I ordered from D’Addario. I confess that I don’t know much about classical guitar strings, but these were not what I hoped for. The E, A, and D are all would strings and sound great. The G, B and E are plain nylon (white in color) and have little or no tone to them at all. When playing a chord on the guitar that uses all 6 strings, the bass is quite loud, while the treble is soft and has no sustain. Maybe I just got the wrong kind of strings, but these were supposed to be the best.Read more

Great nylon strings, just as expected. They worked just fine on my daughter’s mini classical guitar. They are as good quality wise as much more expensive strings I’ve purchased in the past. They are much softer to the touch and easier for her to learn on than my steel strings on my acoustic guitar. They came labeled with both the note name and the string number, which made putting them on easy and quick.Read more

I put on the first set of strings. As I was tightening the strings into tune, the high E string snapped. Sometimes strings snap, and it’s a natural part of playing guitar. I opened the second of the three packs of strings, put the high E string on the guitar…and snap! String number 2 broke. On to pack 3…again the string snapped. I returned these to Amazon as a defective product and bought a set of Martin strings instead. I’m stuck with a 5 string guitar in the meantime until they arrive. I’ve never had a problem with Di Addario strings before, but now I’m seriously questioning their commitment to product quality. I will be exploring other string options for my guitars in the future based on this poor experience.Read more

I always use D’Addario Strings, whether on my banjo’s, guitar’s, ukulele’s. They never disappoint. I have a little beater classical guitar that I carry around and have never changed the strings. I realized it was time to give it a good cleaning and a set up so I knew new strings had to be on the list. There is the usual break-in time, as is expected with classical strings, and the strings are ringing out, also as expected. I have started using a product by GHS called FAST-FRET on my new strings to keep them lubricated and clean, so I expect these to last for some time. I recommend any of the many D’Addario products for all your instrument needs. They are reasonably priced, made with quality in mind, and are consistent. UPDATE: WOW! After I cleaned up the fretboard and polished the frets, shaved 3/16″ off the saddle and installed the Pro-Arte strings, I’m loving my 10 dollar classical guitar. The normal tension, clear nylon strings play like butter but I would definitely advise an action adjustment. Since you won’t be hammering the strings I would suggest going as low as you can. I’ve put mine at 2mm on 6th string, 12th fret.Read more
Classical guitarists are a fussy bunch and rightfully so. When you’re using fingers to pluck strings, create nuances and shadings without any electronic effects- strings are vital. I’ll go further to say that string tensions can also make/break performances. The Dadd’s are great for concert guitars that’re longer scale and set with high action. Nothing hurts more than a 70’s Ramirez 1A strung with high tension strings. Unless your left hand fingers are like sausages it can be difficult to maintain left hand positions and fingerings without praying you’ll get through the solo. Love combining the Dadd trebles with low tension bass strings by Savarez (white card), La Bella/Hannabach flamenco basses, or whatever else works. Low tension sets are also great for long solo background guitar gigs. If your guitar’s amplified and you’re competing with dining/event background noise, string nuances aren’t as critical. Be aware overall that low tension treble strings will require you to pluck them harder to bring out the melody line. These Dadd’s also great for older guitars that’re are delicate or have bowed necks.Read more
I bought these in 2015 (Pack of three), I fitted them in December 2018, & had intonation trouble, after contacting D’Addario I discovered they were fake strings. I bought genuine D’Addario strings & my Yamaha performed perfectly. Two of the unique ID numbers on the packets were the same, which confimed the strings were counterfeit -beware only purchase strings from a recognised D’Addario dealer. You can check the unique ID numbers on the D’Addario website, but you have already bought them by then!Read more

Compre 4 juegos de cuerdas de guitarra DÁddario EJ46 y han resultado ser falsas. Al poner las cuerdas en mi guitarra me di cuenta que no eran como las que habitualmente usaba y que el sonido de la guitarra era diferente. Introduje en la página oficial de DÁddario el código de cada uno de los paquetes de las cuerdas y resulta que no lo reconoce.Read more

I Always buy these strings, and they have always been reliable and have always kept in tune. I have, however, recently re- strung two of my guitars and, having first let the new strings settle in, find that they will not keep accurately in tune, as if they have no elasticity in them, and I am constantly having to micro – adjust the tension. Unfortunately I will need to replace them. I would appreciate your feedback. Thank You.Read more
Apparently my guitar is optimised for a brand of strings that now cost almost £20, and as I like to change my strings every few months, this was getting expensive. Also, the recommended brand of string had mixed tensions which were high tension basses but medium trebles. For me, this seemed too bass heavy so I decided to try the hard tension EJ46 set. I’m glad I did as these have been excellent. They sound balanced and bright, have lasted well so far, and don’t feel much different to play than mediums. And a good price too. Don’t forget that nylon strings take a couple weeks to stretch to full tone. These will be my regular choice of string from now on. Highly recommended.Read more
Came well packed, with each set of strings in its own sealed packet to keep them fresh. Each string is clearly marked so it’s easy even for a beginner to avoid confusion. I’m no expert – quite the reverse – and this was the first time I’d restrung my relatively low-priced (but good quality) guitar, previously using the strings it came with. I was staggered at what a difference it made when I put these strings on – not so much in tone, although the tone is good, but in ease of use. Don’t know why really, but I suspect they’re either smoother on my fingers, or require less pressure, or both, but whatever, I find I can play longer without pain and my speed of chord-changing has definitely increased. So for new guitarists, when all these guitar tutors on youtube advise that you should change your strings to good quality ones straight away, listen to them! I wish I had…Read more
