Sure, this is just a very personal opinion..
Try Augustine Classic Red, or Dogal Diamanté trebles and Savarez Cantiga basses, all in medium tension. With the extra scale length, they may feel more like hard tension on a 650. These have worked well for me on my Ramirez and on a friend's 1A.JohnEdwin wrote: ↑Tue Jun 20, 2017 2:09 amI found this old thread about string preferences for Ramirez 1a. I wonder if there are any current thoughts on this topic. I've tried the "Jose Ramirez Strings Medium Tension" but they did not sound better to me than D'Addario EJ45. I am a student and still learning. Like wine-tasting, it has its own vocabulary that I am yet to learn it. Thank you.
Well, you've picked perhaps what is the brightest sounding carbon trebles. To my ear the Cantigas have definition, but I've found the Corum basses to balance better with the alliance, they seem to sound deeper in comparison. The 1a's that I have played were all rather dark sounding guitars.JohnEdwin wrote: ↑Wed Jul 19, 2017 2:09 pmAfter running through a series of mail-order strings, I have found that Savarez Alliance Cantiga 510AR are the best in my hands and to my ear so far. As they say, "Individual results may vary." The search is never over, but most of the quest is continually improving my own technique. Thank you.
