Classical guitars are known for their truly distinctive tone. A lot of this has to do with their use of nylon strings. Strikingly different from standard guitar strings, a set of nylon guitar strings are definitely worth looking into to help craft your signature sound. Nylon strings are known for their soft, mellow tone, but there are definite differences between their styles. It’s important to experience and check out what each kind offers you stylistically before you make a decision on the type that is right for you. Nylon strings come with a variety of different tensions to suit your needs depending on the sound you’re looking for and the construction of your guitar. Low tension strings have a distinctly sweet sound with rounded out lows and mids. They are also a little easier on your fingers, which can definitely be of benefit to young and novice players. High tension strings, on the other hand, have a far brighter sound that easily cuts through when being played as part of an ensemble. These strings are better suited to more experienced players and to guitars that are set up with low action. Of course, between these two options there are also normal tension strings, which tend to include some of the features on each end of the spectrum. Having a decent understand of the benefits of each of these string types can make the process of purchasing nylon strings much easier. When it comes down to it, the strings that sound best to your ears should be the strings you choose for your guitar. And there’s nothing stopping you from trying a variety of different tensions and styles. Part of the joy of being a musician comes from exploring different sounds and finding out which ones work best for you. Nylon strings definitely bring a unique sound to your playing, and when you find the ones the work best for you, you’ll enjoy making music with them for years to come.
