Classical Guitar String Reviews

See my full review of multiple strings and brands here. Below are some common picks. Beginners: I’d recommend you use a basic and affordable string set such as D’Addario Pro Arte (either normal or hard tension). Don’t get bogged down with string choices, just get a standard string and focus on playing and practicing. That said, below are my personal preferences.

  • Savarez New Cristal Creation – I use these. Creation combo with Alliance (carbon) G string. Cantiga basses.
  • Aquila Zaffiro – I use these sometimes, better projection/intonation, sounds/feels between nylon and carbon. Neither super sweet or dull so depends on the repertoire.
  • Savarez Corum Alliance – Carbon, increased brightness/projection. Might be too intense and bright for some. Brings the guitar to life. Vibrant. Great for chamber music.

  • Yamaha Guitalele – 6 strings but Uke size. I love this little guy, use it ALL the time for vacations and beach fun
