Classical Guitar Strings

One of the most important aspects to consider when purchasing guitar strings are the gauge. Whilst this is true for electric, acoustic and bass guitars. The classical and nylon strings are a little bit different.

Instead of looking at gauge, with nylon strings we’re looking out for Tension. Just like there are light/medium/heavy gauges, so are there light/medium/heavy tensions for classical guitars.

Nylon strings with more tension tend to produce a louder sound overall. Whereas the lighter and medium ones tend to produce more vibration. If you are not sure which tension to start off with, we recommend trying either the light or the medium classical strings as they will allow you to play for longer with less discomfort on your fingers.
