For a single string for the G, I would say try a Savarez Alliance or a Dogal Diamante. Both are available as singles from Strings by mail. I prefer the Dogal. It is a carbon/nylon hybrid. Sounds more like nylon, but is a little brighter and not tubby like the nylon strings usually are. Alliance is brighter still.too wrote: ↑Thu Nov 30, 2017 8:08 amThank you for your recommendations. I have been using the D'Addario EJ46 for years on my 1980s Takamine (4/4) and am quite satisfied with them. On the new 3/4 Cordoba the G string is paricular dull with short sustain an little overtones.
As the G string often is the weakest sounding string, I would appreciate someone's recommendation for a single string.
Strong or extra strong it doesn’t matter as the strings are the same diameters. They are the same for the trebles, not for the basses though. If you have to buy the whole set, I would choose extra strong and just try the whole set. Strings by mail can sell you singles and they ship world wide. But by the time you get it shipped it may be cheaper to order any other strings that you might need from them as well. Our resident string guru Petermc61 gets them shipped to Austrailia. Hope that helps. Also, these strings are a little slicker feeling that straight nylon. You might want to do an extra wrap around the tie block when you secure them, so they don’t slip.too wrote: ↑Fri Dec 01, 2017 9:00 pmSorrily, I have no access to Strings by Mail as I live in Germany. Nevertheless I found a dealer here who offers full sets of Dogal strings. They are available in 4 tensions with strong and extra strong tension among.
Would you recommend the strongs or rather the extra strongs for a 3/4 classical guitar? I tend to believe the extra strong might suit my needs better ... but I'm unsure. I don't want to buy 2 full sets when I only need 1 (or 2) single string(s).
