D’Addario EJ46 Pro-Arté hard tension Vs. Hannabach Silver Special 815MT

Post by MiguelF » Wed Jan 02, 2019 8:45 pm

Someone recently recommended the Hannabach Silver Special 815MT set to me.

D’Addario EJ46 Pro-Arté hard tension strings are my go-to set and I was wondering if you guys could compare and contrast them, pros and cons, etc.

Thanks,

Miguel

The 815MT are actually harder tension than EJ46, but they don't feel like it. They are, at least to my ears, rounder and sweeter sounding, while the Daddario's feels more punchy, midrangy and harder. Depending on guitar of course.

Feel free to ask me anything about Japanese classical guitars.
