The sound was a bit too bright for me, I have thin nails and I sounded ..... thin. It had a very long sustain and a pleasant overall tone, build quality was OK too. Not much variety of tone though.
The 500c is above your price, in fact I should gently suggest that you could spend quite a lot more, perhaps next time.
And the 500 you had was probably projecting more than many so-called concert guitars...

At the time I was having lessons in a group class and certainly found it was louder than most others in the group, sometimes it was embarrasing to make a mistake and have everyone hear it. I was not even trying to play loudly!!!!!
Thanks for the suggestions for other strings to try.
I am not certain now if my right hand is at fault and if I can improve my technique. I think it was just the combination of my own thin sound with the Kantare. I have been looking for a warmer sound altogether and with a diffent guitar I have been able to change that a little.
And after that, I could produce a warm sound on any guitar... But this can mean a lot of work for beginners who already have to struggle with many other problems. But adequate strings can help for sure.
thats very encouraging. BTW I am not a beginner, but like many others, a returning player who has taken up the guitar again after many years absence. None the less, its my sound which bothers me now.
