Savarez Flamencita strings 

A year and half ago I bought a set of Famencita strings more out of curiosity and kept them in their package. This week I decided to try them out. DOGS!. The sound of the strings was poor at best and there was a noticeable decrease in volume. I figured the strings might not be up to the standards of the usual top of the line brands but these strings are the equivalent of a Yugo (for those who remember that car).

I've been using Savarez 520R "red cards" on my flamencas for more than 40 years. I've tried a few others. Some other basses might last a little longer, but I have always ended back up with the red cards.

Just used to them, I guess.

well...even if you keep them in their package, after one year and a half the nylon might deteriorate and the strings' quality might suffer a lot. that's at least what I experienced with a set of luthier 20 strings that I kept flying around only for a couple of months in my drawer.

I use a full set of Savarez high tension 540Js on my Gerundino and have always been pleased with them.

The flamencity strings are the ones with the dancing woman on the package and are super inexpensive-probably made in the basement or were the proto of Savarez nylon strings.

I've also been using Savarez 520R for more than 10 years on all my flamenco guitars with outstanding results although the 4th has to be discarded sooner than the others.

As the trebles in the 520R last an eternity I now put Augustine Blue Label basses for a really great combination for sure...

When it comes to strings, I find user preference has a lot to do.

I agree, Savarez are great for a couple of days. I go through periods of the year where I am playing 6 to 8 hours a day minimum and after 3 days of constant playing all my basses are breaking down and cut up. I do not suffer from the same problem with Luthier strings, they last longer (they come vacuum packed) and have a great sound!

I find that Hannabach strings are a good substitute for Savarez. I like using hannabach black trebles and Luthier 40 45 basses. But then again it also depends, If I know im gonna be playing a juerga, (friends wedding, comunions, ferias, romerias, holidays) where im gonna be going non stop for hours I will use a guitar the flamencos call "Churruona", I guess in english they call them "easy to play", soft guitar with lower tension so your hands are not bleeding after of a couple of hours.

And what I have always told anyone who has been a student of mine. It does not matter what strings are on a guitar. A good guitar player will make a guitar sing no matter what strings he uses.

I think this is the longest post I have ever written in a public internet forum lol
