Product Reviews for Luthier Classical Guitar Medium Tension Popular Supreme, 20
Luthier Classical Guitar Medium Tension Popular Supreme, 20Steve WiedaDecember 7, 2011The set of Popular Supremes I tried felt great under the fingers, settled almost immediately into tune and shared the intonation profile of a set of Hannabach 815MTs I also tried. To me, they also sounded rather a lot like the 815s, only the Luthiers were punchier and a bit more fun to play. Oh and half the cost. I admit it: I want to use expensive, exotic imported strings made in the same factory since the 19th century. Flamboyance always wins over utility for me. The Luthier strings aren't imported and don't strike me as expensive or exotic. Neither their packaging, nylon formulation nor their silver content will impress at parties. And therein lies the dilemma. I need more glitz, but the Luthiers I tried were fantastic strings. Regarding sound, intonation, feel, and time to settle into tune, the Luthier 20s delivered with shocking ease.
