D’Addario Carbon Strings for Classical Guitar


I guess I’ve been sleeping on the job as I didn’t even notice that D’Addario had come out with a carbon string set or had a rebranding in their design packaging. Has anyone out there tried these yet? If so leave a comment below.

  1. My duo partner put a set on his guitar to try them out, we weren’t impressed, they sounded duller than the Galli carbons he usually uses. Definitely lacking some vibrancy in the overtones and weren’t able to cut through as clearly.

    • I was hoping to like them because they are so darn cheap compared to other brands… Galli’s are very nice but I’ve had serious quality control issues with them…fault strings on regular occasions. They might be better recently as I haven’t tried them for a year or so…
