These seem to combine all the elements I want in a string---clarity of tone, proper tension, and, after the first few days on the guitar, holding the tuning nicely.

After trying out a dozen different string sets of equal or greater cost, these are my choice. The basses have a beautifully rich and resonant sound. The trebles are as bright as any I tried. But . . . they last much longer than the others!

The only strings I use on my classical guitars. Been using them for over 30 years. They have a beautiful tone quality with clear ringing trebles and a rich bass.

Clean, clear trebles, lovely harmonic ring in the bass. I've used these strings for more than 30 years and have never considered changing to a different brand.

I love the strings I've got.

They are the best and very reasonally priced strings I've bought. They sounds better than others, and it's amazing how they all, I mean all six strings losen up at the same rate the first few days. (You can play it without realizing you need to bring them up to E, A, D, G, B, E the first few days) They are well engineered strings.

This will be my source of strings. Period!



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. "
