I have been playing classical guitar for some time. These strings have the best overall quality from one brand. Normally I have to mix two different brands of string to get the right balanced tone, but with these guys that's no longer an issue.I have put these strings on my custom made classical guitar (all solid woods) and it truly made my guitar sing.

I just strung my Takamine EG128SC electric-acoustic with these, replacing old Martin high tension classical strings. My initial reaction was disappointment. The sound right out of the box on my unplugged guitar was not any better than what I was getting from my old,worn Martin's except for the lower strings which were fairly crisp. To be fair, I haven't tested them with the guitar plugged in but I don't think doing so would make them sound better. They do seem to hold their tuning fairly well considering they've only been on the guitar for an hour. The Martin's take days before they don't require constant tuning. Still, when the two sets of Pro-Artes are gone, I will return to using Martins, which make for a crisp, beautiful tone on my cheap classical guitars. Conclusion: Average at best.

    These are good strings for the price but I wish the various string manufacturers could figure out how to brighten the 3rd string.

      Comments about D'Addario EJ45 Pro-Arte Classical Guitar Strings 3-Pack:

      I am a relatively new guitarist, learning/playing classical style since August of this year. Just noticed that the strings on my guitar were getting worn. I selected these strings based upon the volume of positive reviews and the fact that they were "Normal Tension" strings. The strings were easy to change out. Was experiencing some rapid de-tuning of the new strings for the first couple of days so I contacted a friend with more experience on the guitar than me. He let me know that this is normal behavior with new strings and provided tips on how to stretch the strings in order to shorten the break-in period. The strings are working great now and the tuning has stabilized. I will definitely purchase these strings again.

        I actually bought these strings as a gift for a friend who is studying classical guitar. Replacing the old strings with these really improved the sound of his guitar, they ring beautifully!

          Comments about D'Addario EJ45 Pro-Arte Classical Guitar Strings 3-Pack:

          Good string at a decent price. It's always a surprise to hear how a new set sounds; they're inconsistant from set to set but when you get a good one, they're great. G-3rd seems to be the most troublesome; it's sometimes rather dead. I change when intonation starts to slide which, with a lot of hours, can be every month. But my old '90's Tak Hirade sounds good with them. If I could find something better at a comparable price, I'd go there.

                After the stretching process is finished these seem to be the most pronunced strings I have had any experience with. They keep their tone and last very well on my classical guitars.

                  These strings sound good on my classical guitar. I like the 3 pack since it gives me some spare sets. I'm pretty picky about strings and like to change when tone starts dropping off.

                  No complaints. They stretch a lot but that is the price to pay with normal tension nylon strings.

                  Classical Guitar Strings on a Tenor Uke

                  Comments about D'Addario EJ45 Pro-Arte Classical Guitar Strings 3-Pack:

                  I used these to attain Baritone Ukulele (DGBE) tuning on a Tenor Uke. I used the classical strings 2,3,4 & 5 for strings 1,2,3 & 4 on the Tenor, and am very happy with the sound of this tuning on the Tenor. A plus is that the tension is a little less than a standard Tenor set, so no danger there. Another set with a slightly lighter feel, that still sounds great on a Tenor, is the EJ29.
