I have used many classical sets of guitar strings. I have always been on the search for strings that get the romantic tones of the gut classical strings, strings that get the warmth and tones of Spain. I found it very close with the Labella 2001 hard tension, which I have used for years. In my quest I was pulling up Pepe Romero concerts on you tube, Pepe Romero sounds have always been my favorite tones I have been going for, while I was pulling up Pepe Romero concerts I came across Pepe Romero son links. I downloaded one of the links called Pepe Romero guitar strings. Pepe Romero Jr. designed a line of new strings powered by the LaBella Company. I listened to the clip and the tones that are coming from the guitar. The classical guitar strings are Pepe Romero rectified Nylon Trebles Hard Tension strings powered by Labella. I have tried other rectified classical guitar strings, while sounding good they had a lot of finger nail and pick noise, which I could not use in the recording studio.
I decided to try the Pepe Romero Strings; they say the fingernail and pick noise is reduced. I put the set of Pepe Romero Strings on. The tone was just awesome! Very warm, clear, felt wonderful under the fingers. This was the tone from Spain I was hearing in my head. I tested the Pepe Romero Strings direct with my Fishman acoustic pickup system, straight through my Motu 8Pre interface and Logic recording software. Direct the tones of the strings still retained the tones of Spain, when adding effects like reverb, chorus, harmonizer, and compression the Pepe Romero Strings came through the mix! I quest is over; I now only use Pepe Romero Rectified Nylon Trebles Hard Tension strings powered by Labella!
Highly recommend trying these wonderful strings, which have the tones of Spain.
