These strings are the best Argentine alternative I've come across. I do find them a tad bit stiffer but that's to be expected with any hex core string. What I really like about these strings is the very strong fundamental they produce. Argies have more overtones ringing out which you may or may not like. If you have a very wet, ringy guitar then the Bosset strings may be the antidote as they tend to suppress excessive overtone ringing. Also, they seem to produce somewhat thicker mids for a more "meaty" sound. Nice strings!
