I've tried the listed strings on the Breedlove, which has a dry, Flamenco-ish character. The Rubinos have a degree of richness that sets them apart from the others. Play them delicately, so lightly sweet. The rich Rubino basses are in balance with the trebles on the Rainsong and the Breedlove - did not try them on the Aranjuez. I wouldn't be surprised if the Aranjuez does well with just about any string. I tried La Bella 2001 Medium Hards on it, and they did no worse than "balanced, nothing outstanding". The Perlas were a good bit drier than the Rubinos on both the Breedlove and the Rainsong.
