Luthier "Popular Supreme" (20)


Tension: Normal Category: Flamenco


ITEM: 00401
Price: $8.00


These strings are famous for their endorsement by Paco de Lucia. Because of that, they are thought of primarily as flamenco strings. However, they are excellent for both classical and flamenco guitars. They have a quick response, are somewhat percussive, and have an earthy sound.

The medium tension is quite perceptibly lower in tension than the high. As such, the medium is often best for a flamenco guitar if you are seeking greater percussiveness over sustain.

Basses: These are loud, sharp-edged and quite bright. Still, they are quite flexible, can be easily bent and treated with a variety of vibrato techniques if need be. Their intonation is usually good and they settle into tune fairly quickly.

Trebles: The trebles respond quickly, though their sustain is a bit shorter than average. They are not particularly bell-like, but on the initial attack they are plenty loud. When played quietly, they can be quite sweet. Their consistency of intonation is average, though they have a long life. In this regard, they are similar to the Augustine Traditionals.
