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.

      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 are by far the best for my taste. I have used them in the past, I use them now and I will use them in the future. Easy to distinguish, easy to replace, great tone, smooth and rich sound. And a set of three for the price of two, well, how can you beat that? thanks again Musician's Friend, "A friend indeed for a musician's need"

              Love these strings, which have a very even tone from top to bottom. The chords I construct, even when dissonant, sound the way they need to sound.

                        While I can't say I've played all the strings out there, I have been playing classical guitar for 30+ years and I have explored a good many brands, tensions, and types, including: savarez, hannabach, thomastik infeld, galli, oasis, augustine; sets with carbon trebles, rectified nylon, different nickel alloys in the wound strings, coated basses...you name it. All played on a variety of student-level guitars to fine hand-crafted custom guitars. Essentially, the D'Addario strings are very good. They hold their tuning well--once they stretch a bit--and sound consistent through all the registers until it's time to change them. My personal opinion is you can spend a lot on strings searching for 'the' ideal tone, but you don't really need to.

                        Save your money. Practice. You'll discover that your ideal tone is what 'you' bring to your guitar and the music, nothing external will change that.

                                    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!

                                        The Pro-Arte strings are a solid performer that I've been using for years.

                                        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.
