Best Buy

Pros: Piranito strings help to bring out the musicality of the playing.

Cons: none

Other: I would not buy these strings from anywhere else but The String Zone. Their service is very much in tune with the quality of their products!

robust and good sound

Pros: I tend to wear out strings quite quickly - probably my fault, I must be more gentle. However these strings do last a little longer than some others.

Cons: none for me
