Argentine strings were born more than 60 years ago and have been played by the most famous guitarists from Django REINHARDT to Raphaël FAYS, Boulou FERRE, Pierre LACOMBE, ROMANE, Patrick SAUSSOIS and many others... They ignored the crises and fashions and remain the favourite choice for musicians seeking their original and unrivalled sound. Used by a great number of renowned musicians and instrument makers world-wide, they are perfectly suited for the legendary SELMER-MACCAFERRI guitars which continue to be made by highly skilled luthiers who perpetuate their existence. As they benefit from new winding techniques that have been incorporated in the manufacturing process, ARGENTINE strings offer a perfect homogeneity between the steel core and the silver-plated metal strip wrapped over, and as a result they resist better to hard use. Their increased resistance is also the result of the use of the most reliable and the finest raw materials perfectly adapted to the very specific needs of musical strings. As they are more resistant, the strings have a longer life.
