D'Addario Pro Arte' classical guitar strings always deliver predictable and reliable performance, regardless of the string set you choose. D'Addario classical guitar strings are designed and made under strict technical and quality control requirements, to ensure consistency in material, workmanship, and quality. D'Addario uses the latest technology to monitor and control the production of each individual strings, to ensure wound bass strings and mono-filament nylon and composite treble strings consistently have uniform diameters and string densities. This endure each new set will feel, sound, and play just they way you expected.
D'Addario classical guitar strings cover the range of traditional nylon strings and modern composite strings, in various string tension levels. D'Addario traditional Pro Arte' nylon guitar string sets contain clear nylon mono-filament treble strings and silver plated copper wound bass strings. The bass strings have multi-filament, or stranded nylon cores. Composite strings use an advanced material called Zyex for the stranded cores of the wound bass strings, and a mono-filament Zyex for composite third, or G, strings. Their composite strings use the same basic set number designations as the traditional classical strings, but add the suffix "C", to denote "composite" strings. Zyex composite guitar strings last longer, stretch less, and have a brighter tone than nylon strings, and are used by classical and Jazz guitarists who need more volume and projection.
