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.


Pro-Arte Features
  • D'Addario's best-selling Pro Arte set, Normal tension offers balance of volume and comfortable resistance
  • Laser measured clear nylon treble strings for consistent, precise intonation
  • Precision wound basses for warm, projecting tone and the utmost consistency
  • Made in the U.S.A. for the highest quality and performance
  • Available in an EXP coated option for 4 times the life span per set
  • Available in a Composite option for greater projection
  • Available in a Dynacore option for greater flexibility and responsiveness
  • Available in a Lightly Polished option for reduced finger noise

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 D'Addario classical guitar strings regularly for a couple of decades, so I can't pretend now to be familiar with the competition. But I've stuck with them for the following reasons:

• They're extremely reliable — I can't remember the last time I had a dud string.
• Their sound is excellent and they last a long time.
• They settle in extremely quickly (this is a biggie for a professional musician).
• They have eco-friendly packaging.

I use the the J46s on my flamenco guitar, and on one of my classical guitars that has a low action (J45s on the other one). Every guitar and every guitarist is different, so try different tensions before you settle on one.

D'Addario are used by a long list of top professionals that you can probably find by looking at their publicity; Paco Peña was the one that influenced me in the first instance.

I remain very happy with the decision.

P.S. If you'd like to see more extended discussions and comparisons, go to the foroflamenco website and type the name of the strings you're interested in into the search box. The forum contains a decade's-worth of discussions.

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've been playing for 34 years. I'm not a pro and I don't get to play as much as I'd like. I have several classical and electrics - all carefully chosen. So, strings tend to stay on my guitars for a while. These have held up really well and sound great to my ear. After several weeks of sitting they are only very slightly off. Will definitely reorder when I need more! I use RIG gun oil to lubricate all my guitar strings between playing. Keeps the corrosion down really well. I've had strings last and still be playable for months and months. I see people recommending changing strings every 2 weeks and just shake my head. Classical strings aren't even stabilized at 2 weeks to my ear.

Bottom line - I've played a lot of classical strings over the years. These are some of the nicest I have played and are better than many I've played that were a lot more expensive. Excellent deal! Don't expect strings to compensate for a bad guitar. You are far, far better off really searching for a great sounding guitar than spending a fortune on designer strings. If you manage to find a great sounding guitar, I believe you will be very happy with these strings.
