Item Description

Savarez 520 R Red Traditional Classical Guitar Strings High Tension

SAVAREZ brought two major improvements never offered to the musicians before and that have completely changed the world of guitar:

  • - The rectifying technology which enables to get strings perfect in tune and being perfectly cylindrical.
  • - The possibility to offer strings with accurate tensions as well as a choice of tensions.

In each tension the strings are made of nylon manufactured according to a specific technology. This nylon is subjected to specific treatments in order to master the elongation, the elasticity, the cristallinity and relaxation properties.

Trebles Rectified nylon

good strings, but had some loose winds on the basses
June 13, 2019
These strings are great, don't get me wrong but Quality control must really be sleeping...i had 2 sets with loose winds on the bass side Low E and A strings, also a D on the second set. I had to wind that end on the bridge side. This is unacceptable for "high quality" strings. If i find a third set like this i'm switching over to a different company!
  • Great tone
  • poor quality control

I've been a professional musician for 40 years and have tried various strings for classical and acoustic guitars. However, I've used these strings for my classical for the past 30 years, because they are the best; they have great tone, feel, and durability. I wish that I could find acoustic guitar strings that matched the quality of my Savarez Rouges.

I've tried many many types of Classical Guitar strings and found the 520-Rs
to be the best in Volume, Tone with less string noise. No Brand of strings are perfect but these come the closest IMO.

Strings that Sing!

I have used others that I will not name, but this type of string (Savarez 520 R) fits very well with my playing style (Classical). They move and respond harmoniously together! Bright and clean! No muffled sounds! Each string vibrates in a wide sweet spot! Easy to tune, easy to play. I have them on my Alvarez Classical Guitar. I use the Savarez 520 J on my La Patrie Concert Classical guitar. These guitar strings make the difference!
  • Easy to tune and play!

These strings work fine on my Raimundo 140. Before I had also savares stings on the guitar, but they sounded bad. I am not sure if it was the medium tension or some bad strings. In fact the bass strings did not work.
Now with the hard tension 520 R the guitar sounds very balanced. Fingerstyle works fine, but also strumming. The nylon strings do have a special surface, I love it.

Great strings for Flamenco.
The treble are warm and dry, with a strong, well defined attack. Perfectly in tune (rare quality in nylon strings as you either have good tone but out tune strings, or dull sound and in tune strings).
The basses are strong too, with a deep but clean and warm sound.
The overall tone is clean and warm with good room for dynamic playing, especially with your natural nails.
I love them, they improved the sound of my cheap Rodriguez guitar, and they work well also on classical, bossanova, and jazz stlyle.
