They have the same tension as nylon strings, but a brighter tone, somewhere between nylon and steel strings. At around 10.50 for the set, they're pricier than standard nylon strings, and they're a bit strange at first, because there's very little difference in the thickness of the G and B strings, and the B looks thicker, but they're wound differently. But I'm getting used to them, and I like them on this guitar. I could try silk and steel, but especially after the headstock break, I want to keep the tension as low as possible and these seem like a really good alternative to nylon.

I look forward to seeing pics of your project
