For those that want a classical guitar tone and feel out of an acoustic, this is YOUR string. Synthetic rayon is run the length of the round core, wrapped with a silver-plated copper wire. The end result is a sweet and mellow tone, with a lower tension under the fingers.

“I’m a fingerstyle guitarist and my playing style requires the guitar strings I use to be lightweight, extremely easy on the fingers, and versatile; they must be able to handle both fast-paced tapping and quieter, more melodic playing. The Silk and Steel strings by GHS meet all of these requirements and then some! They provide a warm, mellow, clear tone while being long lasting and comfortable to play for long periods of time. The Silk and Steel strings have successfully handled everything I’ve thrown at them, from soft accompaniment to a singer-songwriter, to rapid fire tapping, all while maintaining tonal clarity and playing comfort.”
