Oasis GPX Strings 

So I gave these a try because they got rave reviews on delcamp.

Carbon trebles, high tension. I had a few slips during stringing which I didn't with other carbon strings. The b string has a little intonation trouble at the 12th fret.

The basses are really nice, I prefer them to daddario. Cant compare to the savarez aj500 as I haven't used them in a while.

The trebles feel like carbon, nice e string. They are much warmer than other carbon strings and not as bright and powerful as others. My guitar needs bright trebles. The g string was ok, normal really compared to nylons so I wouldn't use this string for the g. More complex than other strings.

All in all, probably great for a classical guitarist, but I require a little more brightness in the trebles. Still really like them though.

I think it's one of the best carbon string I've used so far. The basses are powerful, and on my blanca the trebles are fine too.

RE: Oasis GPX Strings (in reply to Aretium

I have tried a lot of carbon strings including Savarez Alliance, Knobloch actives and decided they are not for me.
They are loud and bright but I don't like the sound. The basses on the Knobloch set are great though.
My favorite trebles right now are Hannabach 815SLT which also gets good reviews on Delcamp.
I am going to try the 815LT to see if the higher tension gives more volume and responsiveness.
