So is this for both the trebles and bass? I'm starting to use classic black trebles with Savarez Cantigas. Now, should I try the Imperial trebles? sheesh.
I think the Imperial trebles are a better match for the Cantiga basses than the Classic trebles, that's all. Mari 100p probably better again.
I really like the classic black trebles with the Savarez cantiga basses; I'll try the Imperial next. I'm not seeing Mari on SBM.

They don't sell Mari. Go to Ostrie Music Supplies (Bill Ostrie). Buy six sets at about $4 ea from memory and the shipping per set is cheap.

Contact Amazon about it. For cheaper items, they often will refund you without having to return the item. Also, give the seller a bad review.

I gave up on Hannabach a few years ago; I was told by the London Guitar Studio that they'd had quality control problems with packs not sealed. I tried the goldin strings and couldn't get them to stay in tune on my Paul Fischer. La Bella medium tensions seem to have solved the problem.
