    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.

    I found the perfect classical guitar strings

    By Angel Caro

    from Rincon,Puerto Rico

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

    I'm a classical guitarist and when I used these strings, I've found that they're the best classical guitar strings. When I used other brands, I had to change the strings every week, due to the abuse they received playing concerts, recitals and gigs almost every day. With D'Addario Pro-Arte, they last months not weeks.

      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.

      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.

      By R1Gyi1Wec

      from New Prague, MN

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

      I am not sure exactly how these are supposed to sound, but the set I just received were very weak in the trebles. I short, I was very displeased with the strings and just ordered two sets of the Augustine Red Label strings with which I have previous experience. The trebles on the D'Addario set were just very, very weak. I play a classical guitar, but in the flatpicking style as I like the tone and sound I get. Maybe these would be alright for a classical player, but they certainly did not suit my style. I hate giving bad reviews and do not want to slander a manufacturer, but the sound of these strings were not even close to good in my opinion.

        I've used D'Addario strings on my electic and found they were the toughest for my heavy hand, then bought a classical 18 years ago and always string with d'adddario. I've tried a couple other brands but they didn't last as long!Cheers,DAVE

                  I practice four hours a day and put on a new set every week on my 1978 Ramírez 1a. I use a low tension B string as the first string. New strings always sound great, and the low price of the 3-pack and free shipping lets me change every week. We work so hard at getting a great sound, so starting with fresh strings is a no brainer.

                      I've been playing guitar for years, but never classical - until now. Stringing the guitar was easier than expected, and the strings feel and sound great. I'm not sure if they'd live up a true classical player's expectations, but to someone who normally plays other instruments, they're great strings.

                          I purchased these D'Addario Pro Arte EJ45's for a vintage classical I recently acquired. As usual for nylons there is an initial stretching period. After a week of moderately heavy playing, they hold their tuning and you can really experience the nice quality of the strings. They are great to play. I have no complaints. I believe they are a good value.

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

                              Dont listen to the complaints, the strings hold their tune after about a week of being mounted.
