One of my students plays my classical guitar during practice and loves the sound of classical strings. He asked me to change over his old 3/4 guitar that didn't fret well with metal acoustic strings. I had ordered a pair of these in clear color in the past and have enjoyed the sound an endurance of these strings. My students guitar had a black pick guard so I picked these black strings to match the pick guard. Boy was I right. The cheap guitar played really bright and the color was captivating. I hated to give the guitar back to my student it played so well... I highly recommend for beginners and anyone wanting to switch over to nylon strings with a traditional western guitar... Order the clear for natural guitars and these blacks for sunburst or red, yellow or cherry burst or black colored guitars...

Value = 3 out of 10
The bottom 3 are nice, the G, B, and Hi E are weak
Sustain on the G, B, hi E is less than other less expensive brands.
The B is noticeably smaller than other brands of the same gauge.

The only really good thing about them is that they stop stretching faster than my other choices,but that's not enough to make me want to ever buy them again.

      Comments about Ernie Ball 2409 Ernesto Palla Nylon Ball End Classical Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      Wonderfully easy to use on a Classical or nylon string guitar, Stick it through the hole on the bridge and wind it on the tuner post. I doesn't get any easier than that. Wound strings are gold, unwound are black, which looks great if you have gold tuners with black knobs like mine.
      Over the years I have used at least 20 sets of these strings with only one unwound string losing its end, and that was years ago. I have had several normal strings break at the bridge, probably due to me pulling the loop too tight.
      Best of all, putting these on a Classical will drive super serious players to drink when they see them. Who could ask for more.

          I bought three packs of string. One pack only had five strings. The strings take a long time to stretch but they sound great.

          Comments about Ernie Ball 2409 Ernesto Palla Nylon Ball End Classical Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          I'm a big Ernie Ball fan and have used their electric and steel string acoustic strings for years. This was my first time using their nylon strings, and I was looking forward to the ball ends and not having to tie them for once. However, the "ball" (really more of a hollowed out plastic nub) of the high E string popped off while I was stringing before I had even gotten it up to tension. I double knotted it and put some crazy glue on the knot, slipped it through and it has held up fine, but that was a bit of a pain, considering the reason I bought them was so I wouldn't have to do that. Could've been a fluke, as I believe Ernie Ball is a quality brand, but has been my only experience with this type of set, so sharing to see if anyone else has had a similar issue. Other than that the string sound great…..and look cool too!

            I'm using these strings on a parlor sized classic guitar that I bought many years ago just for practicing. I like not having to tie them on. They sound great and were less than half the price of many other string sets.

                I did not know they were for Acoustic strings. So being wired nylon they do not work with electric guitar. I am new at guitar and did not know.

                    First, the ball ends make these strings far easier to change. I don't get the purist aesthetic of nylon strings that you have to loop into the tailpiece - join the 21st century. I also haven't had the problems with breaking some other reviewers have had, but I don't play hard. These strings are best for non-classical lead players looking for the nylon sound. You can even use these strings on non-classical guitars. I use these to record latin ballroom music. The only down-side is they are quite stretchy, especially the top 3, and take a couple of weeks to stabilize and stay in tune. Make sure you have several loops of the string on the tuner and that you pinch the whisker of the string under all the loops or it can slip out. Otherwise, they are comfortable, sound great and once stretched out for a week or two, they stay in tune.
