Augustine Imperial Red classical guitar strings are truly a medium tension string set, designed to let the guitar vibrate and breath freely without over stressing the top, and are ideal for bringing out sensitive and warmer tones for all classical guitars. Augustine Red bass strings are copper wound for a medium string density and medium tension. These bass strings have a very deep and rich tone, that sounds confident and deliberate even with the lightest touch to the strings. Imperial treble strings are made with a new and clear polymer designed for medium tension. The treble strings are crystal clear and have a very smooth, low friction surface; and they produce equally clear and precise notes, and ringing harmonics. Together, they form a well balanced and even voiced string set, very versatile and adaptable to a wide range of musical possibilities.
Augustine classical guitar strings are categorized according to treble string tension class selected and the bass string density for each set. Each set of Regal Red strings contains three medium tension Imperial trebles, and three medium density Red bass strings.
