These premium strings establish a new generation of polished bass strings for classical guitars. Their sound production and responsive performance are worthy of the finest concert instruments and the greatest classical guitarists.
In addition to clear nylon trebles, the “Argento Hand Polished” sets include hand-wound basses of 99% pure silver wire for the exterior wrap. They are hand-polished using a meticulous multi-step process, which smoothes the surface greatly reducing left hand finger noise. This new design offers an extended tonal range producing a varied pallet of colors, both bright and dark, determined by the slightest right hand articulation.
With a velvety texture allowing easy left hand fingering, these basses also eliminate any right hand fingernail wear and tear. Machine-polished strings have a slightly abrasive surface but “Argento Hand Polished” sets offer a frictionless feel while retaining their tone, vibrancy and intonation.
