Last Friday evening I changed strings on my new Andrea Tacchi guitar. A set of Aranjuez 300 mt, which sounds just gorgeous. Particularly the trebles (except g string which is always Knobloch carbon) are wonderful. They are clear and bright, but sweet and silky at the same time. These Aranjuez seem to somehow support or even reinforce the strong treble quality of the Enrique Garcia copy which Andrea built for me. But the basses are excellent as well. Articulate but quite boomy. Since I picked up the instrument in Florence mid September I have already tried out different treble brands like Hannabach 815, d'Addario, the new Ramirez and La Bella. Arnajuez made the top score so far.
