EJ46LP Pro-Arte Lightly Polished Composite Hard Tension
Classical Guitar Strings
D'Addario EJ46LP Lightly Polished, hard tension classical strings set a new standard for their rich tone, increased response and strong projection. EJ46LPs give you true and clear pitch, with long sustain and ringing harmonics. The extra string tension helps bring our the volume and projection of your guitar. This is why they are used by so many performing guitarists. Since they are lightly polished, the wound strings also have a smoother surface and feel for reduced finger noise, making them ideal for recording.
The LP Lightly Polished composite strings feature a Zyex multi-filament core which delivers a powerful, but warm tone which lasts 2-3 times longer than traditional classical strings. Each wound string is polished to a smooth surface for reduced finger noise. Your fingers glide over the strings, and you are free to concentrate more on your playing and less on about finger noise.
Composite Strings: What makes EJ46LP composite strings so special is two things: Zyex polyketone polymer fiber used for the stranded cores of the wound strings and as a mono-filament for the 3rd/G strings, and the surface polishing process applied to the wound strings. Zyex is a high-tech, polyketone polymer with impressive mechanical and physical properties, plus and extra long endurance life. It is golden to beige in color, which is evident in the Composite 3rd/G string. Among its excellent properties are higher tensile strength and low elongation, which means these strings tune up quickly and stay in tune. They also keep their fresh sound and brilliance much longer than ordinary strings. The wound strings have a golden appearance, due to the polishing process. This buffs off the peaks of the copper windings, and makes the strings extra smooth.
Two 3rd Strings: You get a choice of two 3rd/G strings. Each set contains the three traditional clear nylon hard tension treble strings plus and extra mono-filament composite 3rd/G string, which provides greater projection and optimal balance between basses and trebles.

Wound strings are polished to a smooth surface for reduced finger noise, great for recording.
