Savarez 500AR Classical Guitar Strings - Normal Tension

As far as classical guitar string tech is concerned, Savarez offers some of the more advanced in terms of material composition.

The 500AR set features a special formulation for the treble strings and special winding and polishing for the bass strings.


  • Alliance KF Carbon Fiber treble strings
  • Silver plated copper wound bass strings
  • Treble gauges: .024, .027, .033
  • Bass gauges: .027, .034, .043


Users report great sustain especially in the higher registers of the fretboard. One user who was mixing and matching strings from different sets and brands found he didn't need to do so with this set.


One report of detuning over time while a couple of users didn't like the way the treble dulled more quickly than they expected - these reports were from a tiny minority of users.


The Savarez 500AR strings are generally applauded as being one of the best premium sets available in the market today. For those who feel that no set gives them everything they want, the 500AR might be worth a shot for your next string change.

While these were previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated normal / medium tension strings available which you can find in our guide to The Best Nylon / Classical Guitar Strings.
