I owe an OROZCO 15U, and though I am selling it, I HAD TO try Aranjuez strings, which have been designed by Juan Orozco himself. My opinion is so-so... Because my guitar is a concert guitar and I use it when playing with other instruments (flutes, violins) I chose high-tension strings. So I went for A600 (Classic Gold). I would say: yes they sound well (rich tone for the trebles, warm tone for the basses), and they deliver power, BUT they do not last long. I will try now the A400 (Concert silver), which are slightly more expensive; the ad says "for the guitars of today"! At Strings and Beyond, you can find also the low tension (A700) and medium tension (A300) sets.

Maybe I mentioned it somewhere, but just to repeat it here: with these strings you must give them more time to settle, in the begining they sound quite unimpressive, but within some days that changes. But of course, in die End its a matter of whether they fit the instrument and your needs.
Music is a big continent with different landscapes and corners. Some of them I do visit frequently, some from time to time and some I know from hearsay only ...

I tried them on my Simon Ambridge from 1999 and was complete satisfied.
But they need some time to build up their complete sound.
After that the trebbles are very sweet and mellow, and the bass is deep and clear.
Also they are very easy to play.

I'll also add an endorsement for the equation. Used them for years - no problems, ever.

I've had 4 bass strings unwind from the same set on my 10 string. The strings were on for only a couple of months. I have another set in the box, if those do the same, then I'll move to something else.
