    Comments about Albert Augustine Silver Black Label Classical Guitar Strings:

    I am not a classical guitarist, I am an acoustic/electric guitarist who has modified what I do to fit a classical format. When it comes to strings, I have always opted for the biggies, usually D'Addario extra hard tension (and the titanium treble set is my go-to). I believed in the SRV adage: Bigger strings give bigger tone.
    I picked up a set of these Augustines the last time they were on sale at MF. I confess I got 'em because they had Segovia on the package and were on sale. My heart sank when the strings arrived, they are the black label set and are marked "extra light tension." I teach in a public school and thought I'd put these strings on and beat them to death in a matter of days. That was over a month ago, and my mid 70s Yamaha (solid cedar/rosewood) has never sounded better.
    I don't know what it is about these strings (components, care of manufacture), but they seem to really lay flat on the board, and I mean that in a good way. I have already admitted that my classical technique really blows, but when I try to bear down on the lower strings, the heavier wound strings almost seem to "roll" under my stupid sausage fingers. Not so these guys. Very pleasant sound and feel, I may have switched brands to Augustine Blacks. And did I mention Segovia's picture is on the label?...

          Comments about Albert Augustine Silver Black Label Classical Guitar Strings:

          These strings were purchased for a vanity application on a vintage hybrid guitar. The description states "Black bass strings", but the bass strings are actually silver. They will not work for my application. I will eventually use them on another vintage classical guitar, but not at this time.

            Comments about Albert Augustine Silver Black Label Classical Guitar Strings:

            I bought these strings for my classical guitar and they were wonderful. They are soft on the hands and they sound wonderful. They have bright E,B,and G strings that take very little time to break in. The lows D,A, and E have a very nice sound. I really recommend anyone to try them but remember not every guitar is the same so they might sound different but they are wonder strings.
