RE: Luthier strings still going??? (in reply to Ricardo

This is what he posted with the pic:

Ya están ala venta me hace mucha ilusión aparecer en estas cuerdas tan reconocidas y tan buenas abrazos y felices fiestas a todos Las vais a poder adquirir en Abrines en Jerez de la Frontera y os las envían a donde sea

I think he says you can buy them at Abrines (taller), or will be able to, right? So, maybe they are indeed being made again. Someone in the comments asked about available tensions and he said they will all be available.

Also, when I tried to go to the Luthier Music homepage, it now displays a bunch of prescription drugs for sale. Maybe guitar strings weren’t the only thing they were selling in the back room

Maybe Morante can check them out at Abrines and report back. One has to wonder if they’ve acquired the process, or equipment, and are replicating the old strings, or have just licensed the name and are rebranding the strings from another source. I guess all will become clear when people start purchasing and evaluating them.

I had the same drug ad experience when accessing the Luthier page yesterday and then I tried again a few minutes later and got through, no idea what I did differently. I couldn’t find the new packaging on that web page. It would be nice if Antonio’s picture was more clear, as there appears to be a web address at the bottom of the package. Maybe one of his Facebook friends on here can ask him for more info.

A better picture of the package from one of his latest social media post.

Notice the Luthier is a product of Tico Music. It’s also at the bottom of the website.

This guessing game has been fun and all. Now just tell us what plastics company you get your strings from

Looked like this shop in Jerez had them for sale now. At 12,5 Euros plus shipping to the US I think I’ll be holding off for a while to see if they become distributed more widespread.

Luthier strings back in stock in Strings by Mail! Are they the ones made in Europe now? Why are they so economic? (In EU they cost double as that) All these questions also asked at SBM and waiting for answer. Will report back here when I have news.

RE: Luthier strings still going??? (in reply to Ricardo

Matt just replied saying that the new Luthiers are made in Spain and they are supposed to be exactly the same. I think that they try to be more competitive to the United States keeping the same old price, even though in the country they are build are sold double the price!

Matt said he has a set to test during the weekend and will respond on how they feel compared to the old Luthiers.

Thanks for the info, Andres! That’s good news. Although it was fun experimenting and sharing string observations! We should continue on anyway!

RE: Luthier strings still going??? (in reply to Ricardo

Well, Matt from strings by mail replied about his test on Luthier 20s strings during the weekend. He says they seem the same to him and he is glad to have them back. I am glad too.

I am waiting from them too by strings by mail along with the solera strings. I am curious to compare these 2 sets and see how similar they are, given that solera only used Luthiers for many years. In European stores the two sets cost the same. In the US they have a big price difference.

RE: Luthier strings still going??? (in reply to AndresK

This is in a promo email I just received from Strings by Mail:

"After a long hiatus, Luthier Strings are back! Same formulas, same materials, same manufacturing processes, same packaging, same great line of strings. Toni Acosta's legacy lives on.
NOTE* When we tried them after arrival this week, we were extremely impressed with how fast tuning settled in. They are worth checking out!"
