"Hannabach Carbon Strings have a very warm and round sound, at the same time very clear and brilliant. They feel wonderful during concerts as well as while recording in a studio. Hannabach are very durable and reliable strings, they stay perfectly in tune. I feel very secure. With them I can develop even more the sound of my instrument. In my opinion they are the best choice for every professional guitarrist. Moreover, because of the wide range of sets that Hannabach offers, their strings could be very useful for beginners as well. I am very happy to be a part of such a prospering and innovative company."
