I purchased my Kremona F65CW from XGuitars back in Aug 2019. Since that time, I’ve tried a number of strings looking the “sound”. I purchased three sets of EJ45TTs from XGuitars and restrung my guitar.
I was shocked how much better my guitar sounded. I’ve installed much more expensive strings from other brands, but they don’t compare to the sound of these EJ45TTs.
I am by no means an accomplished player but I have tried about 4 sets of strings - the Kremona KAMT medium tension strings, the Kremona KAHT high tension strings (my guitar is a Kremona) and D'Addario Pro Arte EJ45 and EJ45TT. IMO, on my guitar the KAHT strings just edges out the EJ45TT sounding a little brighter but with the problem of constantly having to tune the strings for about 3 weeks before they settle and tending to buzz on the first frets of the high E and B strings as these strings. The EJ45TT on the other hand settles within 1 to 2 weeks, is easier to play and sound really good. I totally agree with the review of Steven R.
Hope this helps.
The first time I ordered the Gitano, it didn't work at all; suction cups didn't hold at all! Geoff noticed my poor review, contacted me and told me if I wasn't using it I could return it for a refund, which I did. Geoff contacted me and told me it didn't work because the suction cups were not placed corrhe ectly on the support! He mailed photos to me showing the correct and incorrect placement of the cups. He offered to send them back and told me if I liked them, I could keep them and repay; which I did. He is just amazing! I don't know ANY vendor who would make such an effort.
The support works very well on my Ramirez, but not as well on my Cordoba C9. The suction cups work well and if it is positioned well, it will not collapse.
Thank you Geoff!
It's hard to go wrong with Pro Arté of any type but these are my favorites. They have a well balanced sound across all strings. They have been the quickest to settle down and stay in tune after restringing the guitar and stay in tune even after several days of not playing. When they do go out of tune, it's been less than a half step. On my guitar they produce a clear, warm tone while still projecting good volume. I'm very happy with the sound and performance of these strings and recommend them highly.
