I have just put some Augustine Black basses on my Malapanis cedar top. The Black pack is a light tension string whereas I have been using medium and high tension basses. To my surprise and delight, the Black strings are in no way flabby and have a nice finger feel. The sound is like rich ambered honey, robust and full of color. The Black basses are matched with Regal trebles, bright and clear. But my ideal pairing would be with the Imperial trebles, for added color and lighter tension.
Guys! When it comes to strings, it is a lot what the guitar likes, but all said -- the Augustine Imperial Black selection is real nice choice and the price is right. I'll be ordering Imperial Black in the future.
