These are serviceable classical guitar strings at a moderate price. Augustine's colour classification can be confusing: Blue Label strings are high tension, Red Label strings are medium tension, and Black Label strings are low tension. If your guitar table bows more than usual, the tension is too high; if the sound is flabby and lacking in 'top', the tension may be too low. For my concert guitar I prefer Aranjuez Concert Silver 400, which offer a wonderfully rich tone and good projection; the Aranjuez strings also transform my cheap beginners' guitar into something sounding much better. However, at a reasonable price, the Augustine strings do a sound job.
