These strings are great on my 43 year old solid wood Yamaha classical. just right for clear crisp tone for pure classical sound

I have tried about every brand and type of Nylon string available. I use Nylon strings on two of my acoustics a Taylor NS24CE and a HONDO Deluxe performer (which is a great guitar despite it being a lower price point) The D'Addario Pro Arte line of strings are the BEST for the money in IMHO. The EJ44 are my second choice to the EJ44C becasue I like the way the composite G string blends,especially in the studio. There however is NOT a better set of strings for warm and articulate tone no matter what your style of music.

Very nice strings with a good tone. Unfortunately the G string sounds dead on my guitar. Tried 2 sets, it was the same on both sets. Replaced the G string with a Hannabach silver wound G string and the G string came alive and the new G matched the Pro-Artes in tone. G strings are known for being a problem on Nylon guitars. This was a good fix for mine.

My Taylor won't work without them and my other guitars sound better with them - (Yamaha, Cort, and Art and luthier)

If you want consistency, then ProArte is the string for you. I've used some other brands of nylons, and nothing else comes close. These were the recommended strings for my Taylor.

One other 'thumbs up'--I ordered my strings on a Friday afternoon, and they were in my mailbox on Monday morning. Great service, guys.

"Pro·Arté classic guitar strings are just that -- classics. The treble strings are made from a harder formulation of nylon, and are precision extruded to guarantee a string that's even in diameter from one end to the other. And as an added quality-control measure, every single Pro·Arté treble string is hand-fed through a laser micrometer and sorting station to ensure that the string in your package tunes to the exact playing tension you're looking for.

Nylon is extruded in molten form; this process yields material that can vary in diameter by plus or minimum one thousandth of an inch. Though this difference is only about one fourth the thickness of a human hair, professionally trained classical guitarists can sense the contrast in string tension when the diameter varies by small amounts. The solution to the problem presented by this tension variable was to apply the latest technological advancements to the building of a sorting station, which utilizes a laser micrometer and a high-speed computer. The laser takes nearly 200 measurements on each string, compares and averages the data, and drops the measured string into the proper tension bin.

What's the end result? Every time you purchase your favorite tension of Pro·Arté  classics, you get the same exact string diameter to within four ten-thousandths of an inch.

The wound strings in the Pro·Arté line are wound with silver-plated copper or 80/20 bronze wires on D'Addario's own computer-controlled automatic winding machinery and are available in 4 different tensions for classic guitar.
