Savarez 520 P - Wound B and G
August 21, 2019
I love these strings. Have used them for years. Seems they are getting more difficult to find, so was thrilled to find them on Strings and Beyond. The 520 P have the plastic wound B and G strings. These are the ones I have been using for classical and nylon fingerstyle for decades.

I have not tried the 520 P1 sets. They have all three treble strings wound - the E, B and G. Someday maybe. Right now I like the tone I am getting from the unwound E.

Thank you Savarez for making such a great product, and thank you Strings and Beyond for carrying such a great selection.

Restore your G string!

I always seek these out for my treble strings.

In my view, the rectified or "wound" trebles are easier to play in difficult parts because your finger gets some needed purchase with which to launch the rest of the finders for that long reach or awkward fingering.

I also believe that, compared to even the best non-rectified strings, rectified strings really deliver sonically, especially on the G (3) and B (2) strings. The G-String of virtually any maker - I have used Hannabach, Savarese non-rectified, , LaBella, Augustine and some others just disappears completely compared to these.

Drawbacks are- perhaps the chance for some more small noise as you move around, but nothing like the silver wounds, not like THAT. Perhaps they are not quite as "bell like" , especially the E string.

I generally use Hannabach light tension for the lower 3 and these for the trebles. Savarese make an excellent bass, but I tried Hannabachs and preferred them a while ago. Perhaps I'll go back to Savarese and see if it was a change for the better I was hearing or a just a change.

It may depend on your instrument, but I find that these strings just provide an even playing field for each string whereas the Hannabachs, which are completely awesome and perform very well, have the same problem as every other nylon string- the G and the B get buried volume-wise and sound sort of muffled and plasticky relative to the other strings, which sound far more musical .
  • clarity, volume, playability
  • perhaps just a tiny bit of a chance for some noise.
  • Perhaps a little less bell-like in the for the E (1) string.

Best strings for my guitar
January 31, 2010
I play a home-grown finger-style. I've tried other strings from time to time, but it always feels like I've lost my G and B, especially the G. No strings perform like these on my Guitar! Not ever close!
