    I've been a classical guitarist for several years now, and D'Addario makes the best of the best. I know several world-renown classical guitarists who swear by Pro Arte strings, which is why I started using them, and I can definitely see why they're so well-respected among elite classical guitarists.If you're looking for true finger-picking style classical guitar nylon strings with optimum tone and value, the Pro Arte line is the best way to go.

    I put these strings on my venerable out classical guitar.
    This is probably the 30th plus set of strings I have put on it since I restring it at least once a year.
    I don't use the guitar heavily. actually only use it to transcribe material etc.
    These are by far these are the worst guitar strings I have ever encountered.
    They will not stay in tune for more than a few minutes.
    At first I thought it was the bridge winding that where slipping but it is not they simply will not stop stretching.
    they lose a 1/2 step overnight easy and they have been on the guitar over a month.
    Bought a new set from a different manufacture from the local cheat shop.
    put them on and them on no more tuning problems.
    Take the advice of a pro and do not buy these junk string.
    I normally am easy on my reviews but the quality of these strings are so Bad you need to know.

        Comments about D'Addario EJ45 Pro-Arte Normal Tension Classical Guitar Strings:

        I was disappointed at first, the low E string wasn't wound properly so I had to cut off the last few inches of the string. Once the strings settled in though, they played beautifully and comfortably. I'll continue buying D'Addario's. The tone is vibrant and the strings sound beautiful especially when played in higher positions. In higher positions the notes seem fuller and softer than other strings I have tried. Great string overall. Maybe the E string was just a rare occurance?

              Great strings for the price. Have a great tonal quality and seem to hold their tonal quality well over time.

                for the price of a set; i'll take this over pricy brands of the same tone and quality. it wont break my wallet if i replace strings often.

                  I had to tie a knot in the strings to keep them from slipping through the bridge. It would have worked better if they had "loop" ends on them.

                    Guess I am just used to better strings. I had been using coated, and got use to the feel.
                    These also sound very dull, even brand new.

                      The best

                      from Nampa, ID

                      Comments about D'Addario EJ45 Pro-Arte Normal Tension Classical Guitar Strings:

                      I have used Kaman and Augustine blacks, but prefer these strings for classical finger-style above and beyond anything else on the market. I will not use anything else because nothing else sustains and lasts like EJ45s.
