Nylon Guitar Strings | For Classical & Spanish Guitars
Synthetic/Nylon strings replaced the natural gut strings which were traditionally used on classic guitars. Most sets feature 3 plain nylon treble strings & 3 silver-wrapped bass strings. Synthetic strings are typically the easiest strings to play and are therefore the recommended acoustic guitar strings for beginners, as well as being the favoured strings for classical players due to the different sound they produce vs steel strings.
Choosing A Tension
Extra Soft / Extra Light
Soft / Light
Normal / Moderate
Hard / High
Extra Hard / Extra High
The softer/lighter the tension, the less resistance & the easier the strings will be on your fingers. Lighter tension strings are often used on beginner instruments & are great for practicing on, or for occasional players who haven't got the calloused fingers of a regular player.
