Yep, Savarez 520 were the strings I used for many years when I was performing. As far as I'm concerned, I honestly don't know what I would do without rectified trebles â€“ probably go find some gut strings. These horrible modern stiff shiny glassy metallic sounding strings are a disaster â€“ totally antithetical to the great beauty and warmth of the traditional sound of a classical guitar.
On a different thread I discussed Augustine Classic strings, which go back to the dawn of nylon strings. They sound the way I feel classical guitar strings should sound, but unfortunately have that old intonation problem because of the formulation of the nylon.
With respect to the feel of rectified nylon strings, I, and many other players, much prefer it. It gives great tactile control for both hands.
I am soon going to try the new "La Bella Rectified Nylon" strings, and will give a report.
