abunda_amazon_reviews Okay...so I have been playing guitar for well over 40 years. I have been formally trained in classical guitar (music was my minor in my undergraduate work), though for the better part of the last decade I had been playing and recording prog. rock--stuff like Dream Theater and Planet X. I have always tried to acquire the very best instruments I could afford, so the guitar I put these Hannabach strings on is a Cordoba Master Series Hauser. The Hauser came with Savarez strings, but I thought it would sound better with a different set of Savarez strings on it--the 500AJs. I played and recorded a lot with those strings, but there was always the issue of the high E string sounding too tinny to my ear. Moreover, I am working on producing an album of classical music with guitar, double-bass, and flute (I am only playing the guitar on this album), and it has been difficult in getting the Savarez 500AJs to cut through the mix in such a way that the richness of the guitar can be heard. I had previously thought that because the 500AJs were brighter than most other strings I had tried over the years that they would cut through the mix easily, but that hasn't been the case. Additionally, to try to solve the problem of the high E string sounding tinny, I replaced just the high E string with a Di'Addario Pro Arte high-tension string (I don't like the way the Di'Addarios sound all together, but I thought that the high E string would be okay by itself). Well...it sort of solved the problem; however, in recordings, I could tell the difference between the timbre of the high E string and the rest of the strings, and I was still left with the issue of the strings not cutting through the mix. So...out of desperation, I tried these Hannabach strings, and I have benefitted greatly from having done so. The first thing I noticed is that they have a wonderful richness to their sound: if the 500AJs are "bright," these strings have a richness to their characterization that I don't want to describe as being "dark" because in this context that could be considered a negative word, but I mean a fulness that I have not heard in any other string I have ever tried. Next, they seem to be a little thicker (not so much the two top trebles, but the others) than the strings I am used to, and that is a welcomed improvement, as their tension is definitely higher than other strings I have used. This high-tension quality to them has actually helped improve my playing a lot, as I tend to have a heavy hand, especially on fast ostinatos, as in Barrios' third movement of "La Catedral," which has given me fits over the years as I have learned to play it, but these strings make it much easier to play because they don't flex as much as other strings I have tried. Finally, and best of all...I don't know how or why, but these strings totally cut through the mix of the double-bass and the flute on the album I am producing. I didn't think they would do so, especially because they are so "dark"--I mean that in the best way--as compared to other strings I've tried, but every note of the guitar is unmistakeable in the mix, and there is no having to turn up the volume of the guitar disproportionately to get the guitar to cut through. So...the bottom line is that I have never enjoyed playing my Cordoba Hauser as much as I do now with these amazing Hannabach strings, and the newly-improved sound quality of my guitar altogether has me seriously considering re-recording all of my tracks for the album, even though much of it is already mastered.Thanks Hannabach!
