When luthier Pepe Romero told us about his new line of strings we had a lot of questions, starting with “why do we need another line of strings?” As it turns out, his father Pepe Romero Sr. had been nostalgic for the way strings used to feel and respond, and father and son had gone on a years-long quest to find out if they could make strings that felt like the older ones Pepe Sr. was missing. With the help of the folks at LaBella they spent more years designing what to them felt like strings that had the best of both worlds, i.e. that felt like older nylon strings but took advantage of today’s technology to make strings more consistent and predictable. Pepe Romero Strings are the result of their quest and we had father and son in to discuss the new line, which includes rectified sets in normal and hard tensions, a lighter set for vintage or flamenco guitars, a clear nylon set, a fluorocarbon set, and a set called the Pepe Sr. set made specifically to the demands of the maestro.
