Sets with 2 x d strings

Post by Laudiesdad69 » Tue Jun 06, 2017 3:49 am

Hi, I was wondering if anybody knows of any brands of CG strings that come with a second d string in their sets and where to get them. So far the only brand I tried was henSe, but I am un aware of other brands. I prefer nylon trebles.

Guitar Solo sells their brand "GSP" strings individually as well as complete sets.

In another thread, someone mentioned Royal Classics and Troester. Any others?

That was me. In the Uk at least you can buy Royal Classics directly from their website.

Oops, I missed your preference for nylon trebles. I just happened to put a set of their high tension composits on yesterday for the first time. They seem as loud as the rectified nylon (Saverez red card or d'Addario normal tension) I've tried on this guitar, but the jury is still out regarding the timbre.

Just checked; they sell other major brands individually also.

I've bought RC Recitals from SBM a couple times. I haven't seen an extra D. Maybe they only put in an extra for Sonata or certain sets. I can confirm HenSe 500 having them though.

I usually buy their 'basspaks" which are just the bass strings. These always include two Ds.

SBM will sell individual string sets for many of the strings they sell. So you don't have to restrict yourself to any particular set that does what you want. You can get individual D-strings for many many sets. You can buy one, two, three, whatever identical D-strings for every full set you buy.
