The high tension Aranjuez 400 Concert Silver is the perfect string for today’s concert guitars. It emphasizes the tone’s clarity and provides that rich sound that invariably bewitches the listener. This is the most widely used Aranjuez string set.
Gauge (diameter) determines the pitch, sustain and sound quality of a string. The ideal string would have a uniform diameter throughout its length. Elongation (degree of stretch) of the nylon determines how long the string maintains its pitch, sustain and sound quality. The industry standards in nylon string manufacture allow a variation of 10% in terms of gauge and 33% in terms of stretch. In contrast, Aranjuez's "Calibrada" trebles are calibrated to reduce those variations to 1% or less for gauge, and less than 15% for stretch. The result is an accuracy, power and clarity of tone previously unknown.
Plucking the low E string sometimes produces undesirable noises caused by your thumbnail scraping the relatively thick winding of that string. Aranjuez has solved this problem by running the metal winding of this nylon string in the opposite direction with respect to the remaining wound strings. Now the winding goes in the same direction as your thumbnail, so when it plucks the string, there are no longitudinal movements along the grooves , and hence fewer chances to produce that undesirable noise.
