Product Reviews for Savarez Classical Traditional High Tension Set, .028 - .042, Red Card, Nylon Treble/Wound Bass, 520R
Savarez Classical Traditional High Tension Set, .028 - .042, Red Card, Nylon Treble/Wound Bass, 520RSteve WiedaNovember 30, 2011In my opinion on my 665mm scale guitar, the Savarez Red Card 520R are ideal strings. They produce the warm-yet-clear sound I hear in my head and the rectified trebles are amazingly controllable under both hands. My descending ligado technique is remarkably easier and louder with the 520R's textured trebles. I have been comparing popular sets over the last two months and the 520Rs are the easy choice. Other strings compared: Augustine Imperial Blue (runner-up), Luthier Popular Supreme 20 (3rd place) and, in alpha, D'Addario Pro Arte EJ45 and EJ46, Hannabach Silver Special 815 MT, La Bella 2001 MT, Savarez Cristal Corum Red, Savarez HT Alliance Blue. To my ears and fingers, the 520Rs produce the best quality and variety of sound while making my guitar infinitely easier and more rewarding to play.
