Product Reviews for Augustine Classical Gold-Imperial, ANG-1

Augustine Classical Gold-Imperial, ANG-15Edwin LebishFebruary 20, 2011Very good strings for my grand concert flamenco (negra) guitar. Gives a very bright sound with ringing highs and thundering bases. Guitar is solid Br rosewood back and sides and spruce top, of the Santos Hernandez style.

 

 

The Augustine String Line

"We use three different types of nylon.

1. Augustine Blue, Red, Black, and Gold all use one type of nylon for Trebles.

2. Augustine Regals use a second type of nylon for Trebles.

3. Augustine Imperials use a third type of nylon for Trebles.



Each nylon has a different quality of sound.

 

We have four different kinds of bass strings.

Blue : All Blue basses are the same.

We have Augustine Blue 4, 5, 6 with type 1 nylon.

We have Augustine Regal 4, 5, 6 with type 1 nylon.

We have Augustine Imperial 4, 5, 6 with type 1 nylon.



RED : All Red basses are the same .

We have Augustine Red 4, 5, 6 with Type 1 nylon.

We have Augustine Regal 4, 5, 6 with Type 1 nylon.

We have Augustine Imperial 4, 5, 6 with type 1 nylon.



The same goes for the Gold and Black basses.

 

If we want a 4th Blue, we will find that same string:

in a set of Augustine Blue.

in a set of Augustine Regal Blue.

in a set of Augustine Imperial Blue.

 



The trebles are differentiated by tone color-although the Regal 1, 2, and 3 will be a little more tense than the Regular or Imperial.

The same is true of the bass strings. Under identical conditions the blue basses are a little tighter than the red, but about the same as the regular. Again, there is no way you can advise someone what is best for him-all our bass tensions are very close-All our treble tensions are also very close. For that reason alone it's best for each guitarist to pick what is best for himself.

 

For those who cannot decide-the cheapest string is best and that is what I would recommend. "
