Thomastik fantastic !!!

Peter1929, 04.08.2014
These strings are utterly, totally, unbelievably BRILLIANT. They are expensive, for a very good reason. The resonance, colour and sheer beauty of the sound they generate puts other classic guitar strings in the shade. And the tone is subtly different from conventional nylon strings. As well as more powerful. And when I plug my electro-acoustic Yamaha into the Fender amplifier it sounds nothing like anything I've ever heard. Mysterious is the only word that springs to mind. Sorry to go on, but I really cannot praise these strings too highly....

Great for soft feeling on electric jazz guitar

Tomas J, 04.09.2017
As a classical guitar player I looked for strings that would sound somewhat similar to nylons on a jazz guitar, allowing for ease of play at the same time. It took some time and experimenting, and the KR 116 are what I've settled upon. Especially the high strings e, b and g are very suitable for someone with classical background, as they are quite thick compared to metal strings, and you thus do not have to extremely adjust your technique to play barrés. The sound is very soft and jazzy, and unless you play in a really aggressive manner, you won't be disappointed. The only drawback - they wear out pretty fast.
