Guitar strings review 

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

Packaging:
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.

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

Feel:
Thick and hard tension which make them more harder to play

Used guitar: Yulong Guo Flamenca

RE: Guitar strings review (in reply to Schieper

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).

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.
