My daughter gets a lot of free strings so in my great wisdom some of those are what I use.  Yes I’m cheap, but not as picky maybe.  Chaconne’s favorite string is Hannabach.  (The 815s I think.)

She used Galli Titanium for a while but had a bunch with intonation problems.

D’Addario EXP J-45 with a Savarez Allance normal tension 3rd.

There is really not standard between string makers on tension. I would use the Savarez  Alliance trebles, but they list them as normal tension. Actually, they feel much more like D’Addario’s high or hard tension. I don’t like ANY high tension strings. Some guitars seem to need a high first string, especially some spruce tops.

Matt at Strings by Mail suggested Knoblochs,—he is a player and has access to virtually every string there is. I tried them on a cedar topped classical, and liked them very much. Bright, but not too bright.  I’m stringing up a couple of Spruce topped classicals with them this morning:

Knobloch C.X. normal tension.

It’s funny how we spend so much time choosing the sound of the guitar but pay little attention to strings. It makes all the difference in finding the right string for you and your guitar. Good luck

Hello Mark,

I got encouraged by a guy on a flamenco forum to start trying different strings. I’ve been using good old D’Addario J45’s, with a Savarez Alliance 3rd subbed in, for years. This morning I brought the Knoblochs up to pitch on my spruce topped classical, and they sure sound good!

That guitar is my #28 with one of the 35 year old “hazel fichte” (bear claw) Euro spruce sound boards like #27,#29 and #30. Pretty exceptional wood! Those latter three are all demoed on my website—with D’Addarios. 

Cheers,

Brian
