I buy galli’s when im lucky enough to find em here, tho my options are fairly limited. What about y’all?
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.
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.
I have tried all of the strings mentioned, and lots of others. My experience is that one needs to try a variety of strings to find ones that emphasize the tonal qualities one likes in a particular guitar. I usually try to find out what the maker recommends, and go from there.
