got a set of the normal tension pepe romero rectified strings after reading the reviews here.
been a d'addario guy forever, but these new strings really made an impression on me. i like everything about them.
so much so, i ordered another 6 sets to hold me over for a bit.
Brian: can you comment on the lengths of the bass strings on the Pepe Romero GRNM, are they long enough even for a normal 650mm scale long guitar?
It seems like a stupid question, but my experience with the Augustine Imperial Blue and Gold strings, strung on 3 guitars, is that the bass strings are consistently short
, just about enough to do a knot at the roller (similar to how a string is knotted on a Bernabe advertised in Savinomusic web site) headstock. I had D'Addario HT before, and the bass strings have plenty of length to cut off, even after snipping the floppy dysfunction ends! The Augustine bass strings' lengths are too short, will be eliminated simply because of this!
In terms of sound, I like it enough to try the Imperial Gold (medium tension) -after the first 2 sets of Imperial Blue HT on 2 other guitars, on my humble laminated BM guitar, hoping to bring out more from this 70s guitar!
That said, I am moving toward medium/normal tension strings with a set of Savarez 510CR, will try the CRJ for HT bass much later!
