Wound trebles
February 8, 2017
Wound trebles are an interesting concept, and I've experimented with them for a while on various instruments.

On classical guitar I have used a wound G string for a while now. The Savarez works OK in this position, but I find I prefer a metal wound string for the G.

The wound B and E are another story. I don't notice that these strings give me a "fuller" sound, as some have claimed. But they do provide a more consistant tone throughout the range of the instrument, and across strings.

This is especially noticeable on the B, which can be a "problem" string, tone-wise, on many instruments. Using wound trebles vastly even's out the timbral differences when shifting from wound to plain strings in a conventional set.

Granted, there are occasions where you may want the timbral difference of plain strings, or where a piece has even been written with the exploitation of that difference in mind. For such occasions I have a separate guitar strung with a conventional set of strings.

But for general duty, I really like the sound of the Savarez plastic wound E and B strings, used in conjunction with a metal-wound G string.

Now, if they would only produce these strings in normal, as well as hard tension . . .

Wrapped 2nd string for classicall guitar
March 7, 2011
This special string along with it's companion, a wrapped 3rd string is included in the Savarez Red Card Set
520 P. These two strings add a more full sound to the usual Classical 6 string set. The two special sounds bring more of a harmonious transition between treble and middle range sounds. And your ears will tell the difference. In addition, these strings last !
