Depends on the guitar I guess . . .

but for mine, they were rubbery, stretchy, wimpy and toneless. The bass E string was thuddy as soon as I tuned it up. The treble strings are very thin in diameter. They just felt cheap-o.

Love these strings and build most of my classical guitars to wear them. IMO, classical guitars today are using heavier and heavier strings in an attempt to gain volume, which keeps me firmly in the repair business. I don't think all that is necessary. High-tension strings sacrifice sustain and a mellowness of tone, and, of course, are harder to play. If the guitar is built for low-tension, there is little difference in volume, and these strings have served me well for over 40 years. Kudos to Augustine for keeping these beauties available and well priced.

I have use these strings on my Guild Mark III since 1963. I have tried other stings over the years but always returned to these because they sound the best on this guitar.

However, this may be the last time I buy these particular strings. An increasingly number of times over recent years some of the strings in the sets are barely long enough to use and sometimes too short.

Very good sounding on my Cordoba 40R classical guitar.

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!

Great for my playing style.



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. "
