I am curious what kind of string Barrios used, I heard some of original remastered recordings and it almost sounds like metal string at times, with the resonance. Were the old gut strings before nylon short lived in terms of having to change them? i have been using a Hannabach low action wound 3rd which makes the sound much richer for me, also using low action for rest of strings, which being older its easier on my hands.
Are any of the hybrid new strings worth considering . I find that i often dont dont the bass strings to be as loud if possible, espeically with peices such as Recuerdos de Alhambra .
