Hi guys,

Bought a Alhambra 7PA spruce few months ago. The guitar has great volume but the 3rd(G) strings sounds a lot dead, so does the 2 first frets in general. I still have the original hard tension daddario strings in it.

The Alhambra supporters sugested carbon strings but I've heard bad things about this kind of strings.

Any possible help?

Thanks a lot!

I never had issues with carbon strings, but in general I'm not a fan of how they sound and feel on the fingers.

On the other hand, there's plenty of people who love them.

Strings are very much a personal preference, you gotta try and find out what works best for you.

I had an experience (when I was unexperienced), that I glued (with glue!), the saddle, because I thought it is not supposed to move, when changing strings. The sound was EXTREMELY dead, so I quickly unglued the saddle, before the glue dried up. After cleaning away the glue, I just put it back there, and the sound was OK again. That was on an Alhambra 4P (which is a cheaper model than the 7P). You should check, if the saddle slides out easily, when no strings are on the guitar. Hope this helps.
