"First developed in the Seventies, the Professional Series product line were the first classical guitar and lute sets to be offered in a wide variety of gauges. They have been acclaimed by concert guitarists, lutenists and prominent teachers and even used by such great luthiers as Del Pilar, Rubio, Papazian, Van Lennep and Gurian. The Professional Series have been the preferred strings by a whole generation of great artists including:
Laurindo Almeida, Julian Beam, Mario Escudero, Maria Luisa Anido, Sabicas & Rey de la Torre
The Professional Series strings are still the standard for excellence expected by all serious guitarists. No single set of strings can possibly bring out the finest qualities of every type of guitar or best suit the varied technique and styles of every guitarist. This product line offers some distinctive designs to perfectly satisfy the demands of professional concert performers.
The 8SG set has clear high-density nylon trebles and silver-plated wound basses for the first six strings. The extra low strings are specially designed for modern concert guitars with additional basses.
