Sugar for Guitar

15.00 + VAT

Designed in three degrees of tension – normal, superior and extra (the latter to be used only for flamenco, available on this page).

With a transparent look that resembles crystal glass, the Sugar Guitar Trebles are made using a blend of a bio-plastic derived from sugar-cane, that was recently discovered in Italy.

The sound of these strings is clearly brilliant, clean and prompt, and provide great acoustic power. Unlike Fluorocarbon strings, these strings have an excellent vibrato and a remarkable timbre variation when played very close to the bridge and then up over the sound hole. Laboratory tests showed that Sugar strings have a projection of sound (measured in Joules) and a sustain respectively 18% and 24% more than fluorocarbon strings.

Furthermore, these strings have both the sweetness and sing-ability of gut, and at the same time the clearness and promptness typical of Fluorocarbon. Even though the surface is extremely smooth, the grip on the fingers is remarkable; in other words, they will never feel slippery.



In the event of a squeaking sound that might occur right after the first installation under the right hand fingers, it is suggested to use a hand lotion. That sound will disappear after a few days of use.
