Alright, they've been on for 5 days on my Ramirez 4NE cedar. I was playing Andrew Yorks home on it. The trebles have a certain degree of warmth to them but have great clarity. I was able to get a certain sweetness out of them, especially with vibrato, without losing clarity. Comparing them to the Ramirez medium trebles with carbon G, I would say they have more clarity.
The basses have a strong fundamental, especially the low E. Dark sounding, but less punchy than the Cantigas. Buttery smooth when doing drop D.
My current go to sets have been Savarez med tension Cantiga basses and Dogal Diamante trebles,
and Ramirez med tension with carbon G. I wont say that the RC recitals are better or worse than either of those sets, but they are different and very pleasant sounding to me. They are different sounding, and I like the feel of the trebles more than the other two. They feel softer...more pliable. And, they are inexpensive at 11 bucks a set.
I will see how long they last. So far I'm glad I tried them
Oh, and I should add that the Recitals are a nylon set. The G string isn't tubby, but I might try a carbon G anyway, just to see how it sounds.
