The Hannabach 815 series is the brand's best selling set of strings and is presented as an all-rounder for most playing styles.

The LT or Lower Tension set has lower gauges for lighter feeling playability.


  • Nylon treble strings
  • Silver-plated Bass strings
  • Treble gauges: .0280, .0319, .0398
  • Bass gauges: .0280, .0350, .0429


Users report that despite being a lighter gauge, the volume and projection were very good. A few reviews commended the feel and balance of the set.


There are very few negatives in user reviews - one report of early string breakage.


The Hannabach 815 LT is a set for those who want both light tensions without sacrificing balance and volume.

Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Nylon / Classical Guitar Strings.
