Nylon String vs Steel String


Playability - Nylon strings are naturally softer than steel strings, they also carry less tension than there steel counterparts so in turn are gentler on fingers, hence why they are more recommended to beginners especially children.


Sound - Many prefer the sound of steel strings which offer a brighter sound as well as being naturally louder than there nylon string counterparts which tend to be softer in sound and tone.


Why a 1/2 or 3/4 Size Guitar?


Smaller body guitars are generally much easier to handle and hold especially for children and smaller people. From our experience we have found that the less cumbersome body size makes for a much more enjoyable playing experience.
