Hello boys and Girls! What a year it has been. I got my Ramirez 4NE about this time last year. In that time, I have tried 25 +/- sets of strings on it. Strings I've tried so far are as follows.
D'Addario - everybody uses these at some point or another. I've tried:
EJ45, EJ46, EJ27, and EJ46FF
Savarez - The other major player in the World of CG strings. I've tried:
520B, 520R, 520J, 500AR, 500AJ,501AJ, 510 AR
Hannabach- 815 trebles, Exclusive MT basse
Ernie Ball - Clear and Silver med tension
Ramirez. - med tension with Carbon G, High Tension with nylon G
Hense. - 500MT
Augustine Classic Red, Blue, and Black
LaBella - 2001 classical and 2001 Flamenco
RC. - Sonata MHT
Dogal. - Diamante trebles in regular, and strong tension
There were a couple of other sets that I tried, but I don't remember. I did try Alice, but I don't consider them to be strings, so I didn't list them above. 25 sets averages out to changing strings every two weeks, which is pretty much the truth of it.
If anybody has any suggestions on any unique or different strings that I haven't tried, I'd love to hear suggestions. Next to try is Pyramid Ss and RC Recital strings.
So far out of all these strings, three sets/combinations sound very nice and I call them keepers.
Dogal Diamante regular trebles and Savarez Cantiga basses MT.
Dogal Diamante strong trebles and Hannabach Exclusive MT basses, and finally
Ramirez med tension with Carbon G.
