D'Addario Pro-Arte Classical Guitar Strings

The Pro-Arte series are a worldwide best-selling nylon string set for classical guitar. Combining high quality materials with the unparalleled manufacturing consistency of D'Addario, Pro-Arte strings provide every player with the balanced performance they are seeking.

Detailed Design

Nylon strings require a whole different level of quality inspection to assure that each set and each string is made with precision. With this in mind, each nylon treble within a Pro-Arte set is laser measured to calculate diameter and tension levels to deliver pure intonation and tonality every time.

Core Elements

The other unique aspect of the Pro-Arte construction is the use of a silverplated copper winding on a proprietary multi-filament nylon core to create the basses. The use of the multi-filament core allows the Pro-Arte basses to blend warmth and projection perfectly into one set.

  • Available in an EXP coated option for 4 times the life span per set

Really great sounding strings.
Torx2112
Took me a while to get the strings installed and still needing continuing tuning, they are sounding just fine.

Will definitely get them again for my guitar when the ones I have now wear down.

Despite having played ukulele and guitar as a youth, I didn't realize that strings matter; so when I pulled out a guitar that belonged to my late husband, I remembered that (a) I never liked that guitar, a classical Yamaha model, nothing special and (b) my recent experiments with various ukulele strings have resulted in a respect for what the right strings can do for any instrument.

I bought a set of these strings and strung up the Yamaha. The instrument went from absolutely bland mediocre to a rich, deep, ringing tone, especially in the lower registers.

The strings are well-marked; labels are glued to the ends of the string to tell you who's who. The E string has a thinner area at the end, to allow you to tie off the end on your bridge. (The rest of the wound strings do not have this.)

I'm used to playing with normal tension; I don't like slack tension, but your feelings on this may vary and depending on the kind of guitar you play, you may want the high or low tension instead. The bottom line is that strings are very individualistic and can change the character of your instrument. I now have a very playable guitar and I think these strings sound wonderful.

I've been using this model of strings since I first started playing in 2003 and they've been awesome! They're good not only for beginners but intermediate classical guitarists, as well.

I plan on switching to the composites for this model just to see how they stack up, but I don't really have any complaints about them. I had bought these strings on recommendation from a fellow classical guitarist who I had very much respect in (I haven't talked to him in a while, but I'm sure he's still a great guitarist) and multiple sites I browsed regarding buying strings and installing them were fans of the D'Addario Pro-Artes.

I'm not an expert on different kinds of strings so I don't have much else to compare to other than guitars I've played in stores or that friend have owned, but I felt like these strings have had great longevity for me as long as I wiped them down after practices/performances and washed my hands before picking up my guitar. Even when they were past their prime they actually held pretty decent sound, but obviously not at the quality that they do when they're fresh. I get really nice, rich sound quality from them when they're fresh.

As I've gotten better guitars these strings have still continued to serve me well as they provide as loud a volume as the quality of guitar I'm playing on should provide, and they've just felt really nice on my fingers overall. Part of why I don't like steel string acoustics is that they're kind of harsh on my fingers, which is really bad for when you can't practice every day because you're on vacation or something, whereas I'm able to pick up my guitar with these strings easily after a break in practice.

I presume these are designed and tested by engineers and there are many variables that may account for my experience. My experience was that EAD the metal wound strings were quiet compared to the clear nylon. I think these lower frequency strings should have more tension or less stretch so they are louder.

The Pro-Arte strings came on my Portugese all solid wood cedar top classical with firm tuning gears. It took several tunings before the the strings settled down. I got it the day after Christmas and it still lost a semi-tone of pitch from last week. I think they finally hold pitch. Their surface is too smooth and slippery to hold a knot. I worried that the strings would snap out of their harnesses. They didn't but perhapes the company can experiment with special texture or rosin on the knotted section of the string to grip saddle and tuning pegs.

One the positive they are very flexible and stretch a mile.

I will play these strings real hard to work in my newly made guitar and later try a set which is the next gauge up.

This is 19 days into breaking in on both strings and guitar. I will edit this if the the strings ware unevenly and will keep them in constant EAD GBE tune until standard tune Egan values have worn into the varnish indicated hopefully by a noticable increase in volume.

I have gone through many types of classical guitar strings, and this by far is the best one I have used. Since I moved to a small town I could not find replacement strings. Fortunately Amazon had them on stock, so I did not have to wait long to play my classical guitar again. I would not change these strings for any other brand.

These are very good strings for the price. I was a dissappointed in the sound transition from the nylon to the wire wound nylon. It seems the wire wound are a little too bright and the nylon are maybe too soft. This makes the move from the D to the G string too noticable. But again - the price is right.

These are good strings for the amateur or student classical guitarist. You can't beat the price vs performance. One nice thing about these strings is that they are packaged in an air tight bags filled with an inert gas which inhibits corrosion. So if you buy several sets you won't have to worry about them while they sit in a drawer for months.
