Hi JDInmanjd wrote:Petermc61,
I've weighed in previously about Knobloch strings and like them and Pyramid Sterling Silver. And as Zupfgeiger says, 'why consider carbon as nylon will do the job as well. Personally, I've diverged from buying 'The Set' to choosing a bass set tension and then individual treble strings to complete the set up. Knobloch and Pyramid strings are favorited, but Now I need to shop for individual strings to get what I want. Now, consider that the traditional guitar normally has a thicker top and is generally heavier in construction and the 'modern' guitars are lighter and have thinner tops. In many ways like choosing a diesel or a gas engine automobile.
So, maybe an appropriate new discussion ought to be. 'String Choices for traditional and modern construction Guitars'. So, Petermc61, has this been posted for discussion previously. If not, please set up a posting and Let's have a discussion.
Always enjoy your string enthusiasm!

Nylon trebles in medium tension but I decided to put them on another guitar and try Hannabach 815 SLT trebles and think I've finally found what this guitar needed. It's a rather bright, 'forward' sounding guitar and certain strings seemed too bright. The Knobloch's were close but the Hannabach's have a very sweet sound to them on this guitar and I think the tension is right too. That seems to be a big part of it. I couldn't find any info on tension for the Knobloch strings. It'd be helpful to know."
May I ask what guitar it is that you found to be a better match for the Hannabach 815 SLT trebles? I recently tried the Knobloch Actives QZ nylons on my Sakurai-Kohno Pro J and like them. But you have me wondering. I'd be very grateful for your input.
Same advice as on other thread - SBM. Best customer service in the world.EOD wrote:I'm based in London UK and am looking to purchase Knobloch CX Medium-High tension strings.
Does anyone know the most cost effective way I can get them for London or Dublin?
I can't find a distributor here in the U.K.

It was installed with Carbon trebles and my understanding is that is the recommended string. Ross says his Santos is designed for use of carbon. After playing it and a double top by him I absolutely agree. The tone is very clear and sweet on both guitars with carbon trebles installed.
