Aranjuez Classical Guitar Strings
Spanish luthier Juan Orozco learned the art of guitar craftsmanship from his father. He began producing his own line of guitar strings after his customers complained about the current brands of strings. They were in search of more precise intonation and a richer tone. In 1968, Orozco began manufacturing Aranjuez classical guitar strings. A constant innovator, his guitar strings have become world renown. Referred to as "the strings of the masters," Aranjuez strings are used by professional concert musicians such as flamenco guitarist Carlos Montoya and classical players Celedonio Romero and Rey de la Torre. As Juan Orozco himself describes it, the earliest nylon classical guitar string was no better than a common fishing line. His answer to this was to produce what he refers to as Calibrada-grade treble strings that are precisely calibrated for perfect intonation. Special care is given to the low E string. To prevent scraping sounds caused by the thumbnail hitting the thick winding, the metal around the nylon is wound in the direction opposite that of the other strings. It's this attention to detail that makes classical Aranjuez guitar strings stand out from the rest. The Spanish Silver, low gauge strings have silver-plated bass strings and black treble strings. They produce a brilliant, crisp tone with clear overtones. At the same time, they're very durable. Aranjuez's Classic Silver, medium gauge strings feature the Calibrada-grade trebles and silver-plated basses. Orozco describes these strings as having great clarity with power and projection. The Concert Silver, high gauge is a high tension set with silver-plated bass strings, transparent calibrated treble strings and a warm, rich tone. This is their most popular string. Classic Gold, heavy gauge strings also provide a warm tone with a "fat" sound and great projection. They're robust and durable, and feature the calibrated trebles and gold-plated bass strings. These strings are appropriate for guitars that have less natural vibrancy, such as plywood-made instruments. These strings are able to boost volume levels. We also have this same style as a bonus package of the lower 3 bass strings only, for guitarists who like to use different gauges on their top and bottom strings. The Aranjuez Concert Gold, low gauge is a low tension string with gold-plated basses and calibrated trebles. This string produces a brilliant and transparent sound with perfect projection and maximum tone. Its precision and fast response makes it a preferred string of professional soloists.
