Types of Strings for the Cuatro

The type of strings you use on the Venezuelan Cuatro can vary and can make your cuatro sound very different.  Be alert when buying them and try to get a nice package so your cuatro can sound like a professional one.

The type of strings you choose can make a big difference in the cuatro sound, if they’re cheap and low quality your cuatro will emit inadequate frequencies and it could be unpleasant for you and the ones listening.

If you make a search in Amazon.com you will find D´addario strings specially made for the venezuelan cuatro.  We recommend those kind of strings as the sound is spectacular! specially if you happend to have an excellent cuatro.
