This was my first shot at hard tension strings after a long while. I am mainly used to Daddario EJ45 normal tension but this time I was trying to go for a brighter sound so I ordered a set of EJ46. It needed a bit of getting used to for me regarding the fingering pressure since I was used to normal tension EJ45, and the tuning stability with my rather old Cuenca model 30 was a bit problematic I guess due to hard tension. However, after about 2 weeks they play really nice and stay in tune after being stretched enough. Louder and brighter than EJ45 and plays really nice for some flamenco noodling. A matter of taste I suppose!
