|WHAT OUR TEAM THOUGHT|
|These student nylon classical guitar strings are great for a ¾ size guitar. Plenty of guitar players actually prefer to stick to their ¾ sizes instead of upgrading to a full-size, ideal for those with small hands but not limited to children or beginners.||These nylon classical guitar strings are a high-quality choice for your classical guitar, fairly low tension for smooth strumming. Not the most faithful to holding tune but better than expected from lower tensions.|
