Amazing tone on my Cordoba C5-CE guitars

By Earl Peterson

from Reno, Nevada

I fell in love with the sound of the Cordoba guitars at my local GC here in Reno and wanted to keep the factory sound so I looked up the type of strings on their website and it said they use Savarez 500 CJ's so that is what I got for my first C5-CE. After getting my second Cordoba C5-CE, I did try some of the cheap D'Addarios that I had lying around and wasn't impressed with how long the tone stayed bright and bassy and the tone was a little less full and rich in comparison. So I have been ordering the Savarez 500 CJ's ever since. The other Savarez hard tension strings are very close like the 520 CJ and 500 J, but I still prefer the 500 CJ strings (all they had in stock. They stay bright and strong and are still plenty bendable if you do strong vibrato or even blues bends on some lead runs. They take about the same amount of time to stretch out as the other hard tension nylon strings I have used, but I over tune them, stretch them out and then after they are all on, tune up a half step when I am done playing. I will continue to buy these 500 CJ's for all my nylon stringed guitars (I have 3 now) as they bring out the best tone for the longest period of time in my experience and that is worth the extra money as it allows longer periods between string changes which is always a chore on the nylons.

I expected more

By Alvaro Vazquez

from Chihuahua, Mex.

I really expected more form this strings, the tension isnt very good, just last for a week, and then goes down. are good strings for studing, the auges are pretty big. the 3rd string looks like a cord. And the basses gets rusty soo quickly and the sound dies, my guitar loose sound with this strings.
