Sets are also sold in "hard" tension and you may want to use the lighter tension mediums.
This particular guitar doesn't have a truss rod so I'll stick with medium tension strings. Actually the old strings that are on it don't sound too bad. Plenty of volume on the bass strings and the treble strings are a little more subdued. Is this typical of a cedar topped classical?
