Customer Comments & Reviews:

"String tension is a personal (and sometimes difficult) choice. Ostrie Music Supplies makes that choice a lot easier with the most complete selection of Daniel Mari Flamenco and Classical guitar strings. Available in gauges from extra light to extra hard tension (and everything in between),I’ve found these strings to be exceptional in sound quality, craftsmanship, and very accurate in tension. For me personally I use the Daniel Mari 300XL (extra light gauge) strings on my amplified nylon string guitars as they play effortlessly, especially when playing jazz style chord solos on longer gigs/sessions. (For un-amplified Flamenco and Classical style playing I would recommend a harder tension for better projection). Thanks Bill Ostrie for being very knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with!"

"Thank you Bill! I have ordered these strings from you before and they were amazing. My local music stores do not carry these Daniel Mari strings at all and would have to be ordered, but everytime I order anything from the closest music store to me they never call when they really recieve my order and it becomes a big frustration. When I ordered from you on the other hand I recieved them very fast and the strings were better than I imagined. Thanks again Bill and I will from now on be getting my strings through you!"
