Hannabach makes an affordable set of strings!?

Post by MessyTendon » Thu Apr 20, 2017 5:13 pm

New strings...6.99 a pack...no details of string sizes...so most likely lipstick on a pig. In high and medium tension, made of the same exact materials as the more expensive strings.

Whats the difference?

You mean the 500 series? At that price it's worth just trying a set.

Hannabach are little expensive but sound really bright and clear for treble strings.

around 14€ for 3 strings

Hannabach 728 and 815 strings also seem to last a bit longer than say D'addario EJ45's. I am curious about this more affordable option.

Hannabach has videos on its website of players playing with the 500. Some of them sound okay, and some don't sound especially good, and one duet (Levante Guitar Duo) sounds laughably horrible, but that could be just the guitar(s) and/or the guitarist(s). In any case, a video is not generally a good way to hear strings. I think I'll try one set and see for myself. What the hell - you never know.

Hi Ramon,

I usually use the Medium Tension Augustine-classic red but on my latest recording, I used the Hannabach strings. I though they were good enough to record and sounded good on the guitar. Since the recording, I have changed the g string to carbon and I like it much better.

here is the recording.

Also I like the price and I'm going to alternate using this brand with the Augustine classic.

Hello all! I've been using the YELLOW PACK of Hannabach SUPER LOW TENSION (Yellow package) set of strings on my 664mm scale guitar which can be a murder to play. They're not cheap at all but they make a 664mm scale guitar feel-playible.
