    Over Hyped & Fraudulent

    By Virtuoso

    from Cleveland, Ohio

    Comments about Savarez Alliance HT 540R Red Card Strong Tension Classical Guitar Strings:

    I would like to say that after using the Alliance 540R & 540J as my main strings for over 2 years at the suggestion of a luthier who recommended I try different monofilaments that they DO NOT function better than Nylon.Recently I switched back to my original strings Augustine Classic low tension & the sound was remarkable compared to the Alliance. The Nylon emphasised the fundamental & the overtones better & were much brighter, especially on the treble strings. The Alliance high E is too tight, dense & tense even on a "normal tension" set which is really a 'medium high tension'. The treble B & E strings do not resonate correctly after the 12 fret & decay very quickly due to the density & lack of vibration. These strings are for guitarists who do not play above the 12 fret.The Alliance G string DOES NOT sound better or is consistant with the lower D & higher B string, the transition & tone difference is very noticable, Augustine Nylon IS MUCH BETTER IN TONE CONSISTANCY as a G string.The Alliance A string is not engineered properly: when I would play the E note at the 7 fret the fundamental is lost & the lower sub harmonics are dominant. When bass notes are vibrating playing melodies on the B & E strings must be struck very hard to hear the notes & are weak, the 'feel' between bass & treble strings is drastic. The bass focus on sub harmonics & the treble on the fundamental with fast decay & no sustain. The treble strings are not bright enough or intone properly & at first seem to be bright but that is only because the strings are struck very hard because of tension, Nylon is brighter & clearer.The overall conclusion after playing these strings for over 2 years on a variety of very high quality instruments is they are completely not sufficent as a concert or studio string & I used only because I made myself believe they were superior, they are the most unbalanced strings in feel & tone that I've ever used, They make a guitarist fight the instrument & playing more difficult & add nothing special for tone or expression. I regret using Alliance strings.

    Savarez 540Rs and Khono guitars

    By Clyde Thorpe

    from Owensboro, KY

    Comments about Savarez Alliance HT 540R Red Card Strong Tension Classical Guitar Strings:

    Savarez 540R treble strings can't be beat on a Kohno model guitar. They bring out almost a lute-like quality in mine, very highly reccomended.....

    good for a very short time

    By Macrohead

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Savarez Alliance HT 540R Red Card Strong Tension Classical Guitar Strings:

    These strings were pretty bright the first day of use, but right away the silver coating of the D string began wearing off, as did the the rest of the wound string coating on many frets. Whenever I used a capo, the coating on those frets would come off, and very quickly, the brilliance was gone. Also, these strings began buzzing after a while, even when playing them open.
