Anyone try/use dogal strings 

I noticed SBM has Dogal strings on sale. Apparently they also make a flamenco set but can't find them online. Anyone try them? They're expensive.

Ric,

I'm currently trying the Dogal NR127B Regular Diamante Classical Guitar Strings:

https://www.stringsbymail.com/classical-guitar-strings-1/dogal-1070/diamante-1071/regular-1074/

They sound very good with my Devoe blanca. They tune up fast, no wait time. Really nice warm sound.

Suerte!

From your description MT I'm very much tempted but I note they cost almost twice as much from the maker as they do in the US. And that type of lunacy is against my religion

I think they are worth a try. I have used Dogal Diamente's, Maestrale's, and at first really liked them, but my preferred strings right now are Royal Classic's on the bottom (according to SBM they are all the same bottoms so I use the Flamenco ones) and Knobloch CX carbons on the top. YMMV. All guitars are a little different and all players have different tastes so the best way is to try them. If I had to pick one, I'd say go with the Diamente's.

Flyeogh, can you please post link to cheaper strings? That would be awesome to get them at half price.

Ric,

I like to try new strings all the time. That being said my go to string setup is:

basses:
Philippe Bosset Titanium Classical, Normal Tension Bass Set
https://www.stringsbymail.com/philippe-bosset-titanium-classical-normal-tension-bass-set-19131.html

3rd string:
Knobloch Actives CX 3rd G Medium Tension, single string
https://www.stringsbymail.com/knobloch-actives-cx-3rd-g-medium-tension-single-string-6351.html

2nd and 1st from this treble set:
Knobloch Actives QZ Nylon MT Classical Guitar Strings 300AQZ, Treble Set
https://www.stringsbymail.com/knobloch-actives-qz-nylon-mt-classical-guitar-strings-300aqz-treble-set-18812.html

That 3rd string from Knobloch is my fav g string, not tubby, doesnt buzz, nice warm sound. The other trebles from this treble set sound good, I just dont like the thin diameter they have.

Dogal Diamante regular tension is the one I tried. Very pleasantly surprised. Very easy to play, one of the easiest medium tension I have ever tried. Very big in volume and body, amazing vibrato, and sing with great expression possibilities. Very sensitive to the touch, are responding to every change and have a well round tone.

Just one negative thing. The tuning takes a loooot of patience. Worth the wait though. Not suitatable for last minute change of strings, like before a concert.

They also have great packaging that has a logo saying avoid soundboard stress. I believe them since their medium tension seems very light to me. The trebles are a mix of nylon with some amount of carbon in them, not carbonish at all in my opinion (I do not like carbon strings at all).

Cheers!

P.S. I have a video playing with them but it is not flamenco and it is too rough to post it here, sorry.
