Vicente Carrillo India Estudio: Which strings?

Post by AntonioMartinsPereira » Sun Jul 16, 2017 9:26 am

Hello everyone.
I recently purchased a vicente carrillo india studio guitar (cedar) and would like to hear your opinion about the strings that work best.
Between the two I have tried (DADDARIO EXP 45 [NT] and SAVAREZ Alliance HT Classic) my choice is SAVAREZ.
Thank you.

They are entirely different strings. Fairly dull (D'Addario) to about as bright as you can get (Alliance). Why not try a more middle of the range tonality set of strings eg Savarez Creation (carbon G but with nylon b and e)?

I like the Savarez alliance but if you find them too bright a good step down are Hannabach Carbon trebles, same carbon sustain but a bit sweeter than Savarez.

Friends, thank you for your opinion.
Does anyone have an opinion about the HANNABACh "custom made" High Tension (728HT)?

Sorry for this last question. I didn´t see a similar question in the fórum.

I think you meant the Goldins?

No, if you Google 'Hannabach Carbon trebles' you'll see they come as a separate set.

They are brighter than Goldins.
