D’Addario EJ45s are a standard among entry and mid-level classical guitar players.

The treble strings are made from nylon.

The windings on the bass strings are silver-plated copper, a combination that offers a balanced combination of clarity and warmth.

Because of their composition, these strings are a great fit for classical guitar pieces of all styles and levels.

The silver-plated copper winding helps to tighten up the bass response, though darkly voiced instruments may lack the high-end response necessary to give the treble strings an articulate tone.

And while they may not compare to high-end nylon strings they are widely considered to be a very good value.


  • Rich tone
  • Nylon and silver-plated copper strings
  • Treble gauges: .0280, .0322, .0403
  • Bass gauges: .029, .035, .043


These strings are considered by reviewers to be one of the most consistent sets available, with reports of quality concerns being few and far between.


Strings take some time to settle in according to some reviews.


Although these are good strings that were previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can find in our guide to The Best Nylon / Classical Guitar Strings.
