Schieper -> Guitar strings review (Dec. 25 2019 17:16:04)

Probably partly covered in detail in subform etc. To add to that I would like to [over time] record my experiences with various strings. To start with

Aquila - Sugar - Classical Guitar [bs 2/2019] - Extra High Tension

Simple none air tight sleeve. All strings coiled in one bundle without identification on individual strings

First impression:
Nice red color of bases. The G strings seems very thick. Very stable sound. Small echo. Could not string the high E. It kept snapping 3 times at the bridge. Even after trying to tighten it really slowly, could not get past d#. Luckily I had a d'adario left.

Louder strings, make a responsive, hard and popping sound.
The trebles have a anoying quitsching sound when my finger runs over it.

Thick and hard tension which make them more harder to play

Used guitar: Yulong Guo Flamenca

Hello and Merry Christmas! Thank you for sharing the sugar strings experience. I have a normal tension pack on the way from strings by mail so I can test too.

It is true that tension described on the number details is very high. Not so sure if I am going to keep them more than a day.

Just wanted to ask what tension you got, as there are different ones as normal, superior and extra (which says is for flamenco but I wouldn't dare using such a high string tension, I wouldn't like to cause any stress on the absolutely excellent flamenco guitar I have).

It is extra high tension.. which they indeed are

Thanks for sharing. Lots of members here I think are interested in string reviews.

In the process of buying new strings, wish there were more reviews. Searching the Foro now for older post.

Hello. If you want reviews for Aquila check the Aquila most durable set thread. I would not suggest the sugar extra for various reasons. If you want to try the sugar set go for their lower tension set.

I have been playing the strings game again.
Was using Mari 100P.
Had read good things about Dogal Diamante so tried those and liked them.
But then also I had good luck with D'addario EJ25 so I compared against Dogal and the EJ25 edged them out.
I felt the sound was more open with the EJ25 and I liked the feel better, plus I can get them in black (muy Flamenco!).
I also like D'addario basses so I can buy the full set and at a very reasonable price.
String games over.
