Named after the famous city in Spain, Sevilla Classical Strings are designed for the most discerning classical guitarist. Sevilla Strings are classical guitar strings that feature the Cleartone Patented EMP Coating. At one micron, the EMP treatment is the thinnest coating in the industry, designed to last a long time without compromising the feel and sound of traditional strings. "Silver wrapped wound strings are very susceptible to tarnishing," says product manager Joe Iacobellis. "With our EMP Treatment, Seville Strings last a long time while maintaining the natural feel and sound of traditional strings."
Known for their selective tastes and stringent desire for traditionalism, classical guitarists hate to do anything easy. Changing strings is one of those things. Classical guitars are known for their rich tones which are partially achieved through the "tried and true" methods that have worked for centuries, going the easy route only defeats the purpose of playing such a magnificent instrument. Changing strings frequently has simply been a way of life for veteran classical guitarists.
Sevilla Strings will be available in regular tension and with ball-ends. A tie-on version will be introduced later in the year. Sevilla Strings will retail for $29 and be available at select retailers nationwide.
