Missing 1st E String on a set of AUGUSTINE!!
I am very disappointed with the quality and production of AUGUSTINE strings. I can't believe I opened the set of Red AUGUSTINE strings just to find that the high E is missing!!
I have been playing guitar since the age of 5, and this is my first time I encountered this kind of carelessness in their production and unforgivable issue for a professional musician.
This was my first time I bought AUGUSTINE, and sure will be my last!!

Augustine Red Label nylon strings
My earlier note about 4th 'D' string failures, I retract. Subsequent stringings with Red Label Augustines have been without any undue failure. The Augustine 'Red' has been my first choice for decades, particularly for my 1967 spruce top Goya. Great value!

Augustine Red Label String failure
I have had two successive failures of the 'D', 4th string on two different guitars at the bridge. It appears that the nylon gives way where the playing string is 'haltered' by the tie-down loop. Any comments? Yes, I had been working these string sets for some time before the string failed, but why just the 4th? The same thing has now happened with a guitar that's running Blue Label strings (same 'D' string}.

Red
I have been using one set of Augustine Red every week for over 20 years.

 

 

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. "
