 D'Addario EJ27N Student Nylon Classical Guitar StringsContestant number one is the D'Addario EJ27N Student Nylon Classical Guitar Strings.

 Savarez 520P3 TraditionalNow we will have look at an alternative, the Savarez 520P3 Traditional. There are some products that don’t really need an introduction, just a recommendation. We believe this is that kind of product. These strings barely have a product description on Amazon, and yet its reviews reveal that it’s some of the best strings out there for classical guitar. These high tension strings sound great and the G string is wound, which gives it a very bright and nice sound. This is good because the G string can sometimes be a problem, it’s quite often ‘the boring string’, that doesn’t have much character.
