Product Reviews for Thomastik-Infeld Nylon/Silverplated Copper Flat Wound Light Rope Core, .016 - .039, KR116

Thomastik-Infeld Nylon/Silverplated Copper Flat Wound Light Rope Core, .016 - .039, KR1164DBFJanuary 15, 2012This is the first review that I have written about anything, ever. These string are the best quality guitar string I have ever used. I have a couple of classicals, two steel string flat tops, three arch tops, and several solid bodies and I have tried a lot of different string on all of them. I put a set of these on my Taylor NS72. They really sound amazing. Immediate improvement in the intonation and a bright, even sound. The sound is much brighter that a typical nylon string set. The trebles sound almost like a steel string guitar. If you are used to the typical nylon trebles and really like that sound these may not be for you. I would describe it almost as a hybrid type sound. I had no issues with fret or nut buzz even with the smaller diameter compared to a traditional nylon set. Great feel, touch, dynamics, sustain. I find myself picking up that guitar before any other now that I put these strings on it! Great service from JustStrings - no more trips to GC for strings for me!
