Has anyone had experience with any of the RC strings? I am getting to order new strings and am curious about these.

I have used the Sonata in the past. Nicely balanced overall with first class nylon trebles. The 4th string didn’t last that long for me so be sure to buy a set with two d strings.

Guitars are very choosy regarding strings you put on them. My Karel Dedain Spruce/Maple 64cm Torres prefers Savarez. Even I tried to experiment with La Bella 2001 MHT, D'Addario Hard Tension, it only sounds great for a while.
My other guitars, Yamaha GD 10 and Alhambra 8 sound okay with the two brands above. Maybe they were both 65cm.
