That's basically it. The main differences lie in the trebles. I have used the complete Labella 820 (red trebles) on classical, and I think this set is quite a nice set, including the trebles, I like the red trebles much better than the black ones. It's a medium-light set...Blondie wrote:Yes it is possible to use these on your guitar, you will not harm it in any way. Firstly the idea of 'flamenco strings' is largely about marketing. The idea of re-packaging a product and calling it something else to increase market share is nothing new. Savarez, for example, market one of their strings sets at both flamenco players and classical players simply with different branding.
Having said that, I went through a phase of using these on my flamenco guitars. They are (comparatively speaking) fairly light in tension, the basses are OK but I eventually got tired of the thin black trebles which give a dry 'plinky' sound. They were OK, particularly for rasgueado, but I wouldn't dream of putting them on a classical as they lack body and warmth.
The d-string is usually the first of the woud strings to show signes of wear, that's normal, because the diameter and the necessary mass of the string requires very thin wire that gets stressed a lot on the frets.Laudiesdad69 wrote: Starting t get some wear on the D string. ...
These strings are still in good shape and the d string hasn't started to unwind or anything. I am very impressed with these strings and will use them again.rojarosguitar wrote:They must be supernatural ... usually even slight changes in temperature and humidity translate into change in tuning ...
But roughly, yes, strings settle and stay more or less in tune, usually. If they don't at all, I would worry more, there might be some slippage at the bridge or tuner.
Staying in tune is not a sign they are going to break soon. But sure, if you see the winding breaking it's high time to change them. Watch out for signs of wear at the bridge bone, especially with the d-string.
