Dogal Venetian strings

Post by Laudiesdad69 » Wed May 03, 2017 11:37 pm

Does anyone have any experience with Dogal Venetian medium tension classical guitar strings? I am looking for strings for a Ramirez spruce top IRW back and sides. They seem to be reasonably priced and are supposed to be meant specifically for solo guitar. They are $11.99 at SBM. What do they sound like? And how long do they last? Especially how long does the d string last?

I have tried Dogal venetian strings recently. Currently I have Venetian basses paired with Mari 100p - a very nice match.

I did spend some happy time with Venetian trebles, too - they are similar to the Diamante trebles, but if anything more 'bubbly' (can't think of a better adjective). They are full sounding to me, and the basses are quite 'throaty'. My Michael Ritchie is oil finished, and seems to like their fatter, jazz lounge tones.
