My one stop shop for all things musical. Artist provide all I need to keep my music alive and moving forward. These strings are comparable to other pricey competitors. They keep their bright sound and hold intonation well. Impressed.

Great classical/spanish guitar nylon strings

By: on 27 July 2023
Helped a neighbour to set up a classical guitar they had got hold off to start learning. Got these strings as they were value and I don't have any favourite nylon strings as I play acoustic/electric steel string guitars. Was very impressed with the quality/packing, fitted them as per the correct way/knots etc as per a YouTube instructional. Stretched them in same as I do my steel strings, and re-tuned over a couple of days. They settled down nicely and held their tuning and sounded nice, I had some fun playing the little classical guitar before taking it back to my neighbour. Would buy again and can recommend them.

Thank you for the review on the strings.

They're Strings for Classical Guitar

By: on 19 August 2022
Yep. They sure sure strings. Nylon ones. For classical guitar, as it happens. They sound really nice after removing the original set from 10 years ago. Feel is really good and they tied on without incident. I'm no expert, but these feel, play and sound perfectly fine. Cheap and functional - what more do you want?

Artist Guitars Response
We appreciate the time you have taken to leave a review for the strings. Thanks.

Good value strings

By: on 21 January 2022
This set of strings were for a half size classical guitar. After restringing, it took a few days for the tension to stabilise and retain its tuning. Very happy with the sound.

Artist guitars strings.

By: on 4 January 2022
I go through a lot of strings, Electric, and Acoustic. After years of buying all the other brands I eventually discovered the Artist Guitars brand. What a pity I didn't find them sooner. Not only are they clear and strong, they also have a great tone and last just as long as any other and much more expensive strings. Thank you Artist Guitars ... my go to musical gear supplier.

Artist Guitars Response
We are so glad that our strings are now your go-to strings. Thank you for the review. We appreciate it.

Excellent , perfect for me!

Good quality strings, sound is great, such good value, speedy service! 5 Star!

Artist Guitars Response
Hello! Thank you for your great feedback on the CLST strings. It really means a lot to us!

Not very resilient strings

By: on 21 July 2021
Purchased these and the brass started to break and unspool at the frets after about 2 weeks. Not even heavy play. Got a replacement set, but haven’t checked if it’s prone to the same yet. Hopefully just one off batch issue.

Artist Guitars Response
Sorry to hear about the poor set you initially received but I'm happy we have already sent you a replacement set. Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or need help with anything.

For the price, these strings resonate and play well. Longevity, if played with fervour and regularity, is questionable. For their role on my guest guitar, they represent excellent value, and are an organic choice in a plastic world.

Thank you so much for the review and for all the support. Cheers.

Classical guitar strings always require extra stretching...regardless of the brand


By: on 24 July 2020
The strings are alright not great though. They arent the easiest to string up with and they require a lot of stretching to stay in tune. Probably wont use them again.

Thought of trying this set of strings for my standard classical guitar. Quality looked good, produces good sound. Easy on the fingers. Happy with the result.

I am very impressed with the quality of these strings. Beautiful even tone with bags of punch in the bass and clarity and accuracy in the trebles. Amazing product for a fraction of the price with the same result as much more expensive strings.

Not very good.

By: on 2 April 2020
Strings are pretty low quality and break before you even reach pitch.

I recently bought this guitar. All I ever wanted from my guitar i got with this purchase. Nice warm guitar sound created with the help of spruce top is unbeatable. Easy to tune, play and carry around are just some of the features I love. Highly recommended. Initially I had the problem as guitar was supplied with oxidized strings. Artist guitar staff reacted promptly and sent me set of new strings.

I bought these strings to use on my Ukulele as a low-g set. They work perfectly and are the same price as the Artist Ukulele strings, but there isn't a low-g option in that range. Does the job, sounds like it should.

still new and still stretching but they sound great...... I have them on a custom Canadian classical which sounds country western and a Spanish that gives that real Spanish sound. Its amazing the difference that you can actually hear in the strings.... thank you they are exquisite

Thankyou. These strings are for the Classical guitar which I bought from you last year for my husband. We are very happy with the guitar and the strings were sent very quickly, so yes we are very satisfied with your service. We travelled Australia last year for 61/2 months and he taught himself to play it in that time, and is loving every minute of the experience, so thank you once again.
