Strings for Manuel Adalid Model 11

Post by benbass » Sun Jan 21, 2018 12:54 pm

I have an Adalid Model 11 and I am not happy with the treble response and tone. I have tried D'Adarrio, Saverez and laBella string and nothing sounds great. the sound dies without any resonance. I even tried a hard guitar pick and got the same results. Any suggestions.

Thanks,
Ben

What tension were the strings? If, say, they were all high tension then try a low tension set. Some guitars are quite sensitive to string tension (and some aren’t).

Cedar or spruce top. Looks like you are having spruce. Try carbon string like the daddario exp, savarez KF Alliance
