Default High Tension strings on a Cordoba C5?

Can these be used on a C5? What are the advantages to using them over lower tension strings?

You can use high tension nylon strings on any classical guitar. They generally give a brighter sound than low tension strings, often with a tad more volume.

One disadvantage could be that as classical guitars have a higher action than steel string guitars, more pressure would be needed to press the strings down beyond the 5th fret.

High tension strings are slightly more difficult to play than low tension but only slightly. Most people get used to the way they play pretty quickly.

Default Cordoba strings

As far as I know all. Cordobas come with Corum HT strings.
