Every guitarist must have a lot of words to say when talking about how the quality of a guitar set matters. As the most important part of a guitar, strings play an irreplaceable role in the sound performance of a guitar, especially a classical guitar. A high-quality classical guitar string set should have a great tone, stable pitch, good playability, and a long lifespan. To find the best classical guitar strings, Daniele Defranis, a composer, arranger, teacher, concert performer, and guitarist from Milan, Italy, has come to Alice’s factory and felt Alice’s guitar strings in person.

Who Is Daniele Defranis?

Daniele, who received a master’s degree in classical guitar from the Scuola Musicale di Milano, has learned classical guitar from world-class teachers and has won numerous prizes regardless of his domestic country and the global range. Many times, he has performed in clubs and concert halls in Italy, Europe (Germany, France, Denmark), and China. Sometimes, he plays for special occasions, festivals, or important international organizations, including the Rotary Club, Chaine des Rotisseurs, Italian Consulate, European Union Celebration, American Chamber of Commerce, Music Capital City Conference, and Greater Bay Area Dance Week.

Now he lives and teaches as the director of the Italian Art and Music Study Abroad program at FCAEC Art Center in Dalian, China. This time, he went across 1927 miles in China to chase his muse and find the best classical guitar strings in Alice.

Journey in Alice Factory

Led by Chen Liping, Alice’s manager, Daniele has visited the production area and learned Alice’s strings’ processing requirements and testing standards.

Production: In the production area, Daniele has met the advanced manufacturing machines that Alice applies. These include automatic winding machines, ball-end attaching machines, advanced CNC winding machines, fret wire machines, hexagonal core automatic rolling machines, and fully automatic rolling machines. As introduced by Chen, Alice has not only imported advanced automatic machines but also kept researching to innovate machine devices for producing close-to-perfect string sets.

Testing: With vast investment in introducing precise testing devices and building talented teams, Alice has established an inspection and test center which has greatly impressed Daniele. The spectrum analyzer, servo control tensile strength tester, salt erosion tester, non-contact laser diameter gauge, etc., are all supporting the born of high-end strings with well-balanced tension, superior responsiveness, good tenuto, and high playability.

“Once You Play It, You Will Like It.”

After having a deep understanding of how Alice’s strings are made and tested, Daniele showed his amazement and admiration for Alice’s pursuit of meticulousness and excellence. Then, he was invited to perform with the best classical guitar strings AC158 provided by Alice, which are praised for their beautiful sound and comfortable feel!

Superb guitar skills plus the best nylon strings for classical guitars equal unparalleled aural pleasure – that is everyone’s thought when enjoying Daniele’s performance.

This will be an unforgettable experience forever!
