Light gauge - .010 .014 .022 .028 .036 .045
Silver plated copper
Purple silk winding
Manufactured by Savarez in France.
Light gauge Argentine strings usually sound best on long scale Selmer style guitars (670mm or longer) with higher action.
Most Selmer style tailpieces will take both loop end or ball end strings. There is no difference in sound or playability between the two.
The best strings
I've tried many different gypsy string brands and ended up coming back to Argentines. No one else has achieved the combination of tone and playability that you find with Argentines, and Michael's prices are unmatched.

Pros: Great sounding strings designed for my Gitane gypsy box.
I had big trouble scourcing gypsy guitar strings in Oz, especially the preferred Argentine 10's with ball ends. Getting the 5 pack fromn Django Books was a no brainer, the turnaround was quick price per set is the cheapest by miles. Plus you can get packs of a particular guage, wound G stings in my case, which is fantastic. Nodjango Red Cliffs Victoria Australia

Very good strings
I've tried a number of different gypsy strings on my Gitane DG-255, but I like these the best. I like their dry, somewhat trebly rhythm tone, they have a fairly even volume across the strings for leads. They're pretty sturdy. I think I play pretty hard and they last quite a while. And the price is right, especially if you buy 5 sets at a time.

Still the best
Pros: Good sounding and inexpensive
Michael and crew (how many people are there at Django Books?) do a GREAT job of getting stuff out. Living in the middle of the Pacific Ocean makes it tough to get proper Django support. I can count on getting my orders within a week. And the the strings are still the best sounding wires on my Wrembel. Thanks Michael!

The best strings for manouche I think - just try it one time and will never use others:) After buying Savarez from Djangobooks I can change them once in a week - the best price!

Have tried a bunch of gypsy guitar strings and I must say that the Argentines thus far have the best longevity and intonation last considerably longer than other strings I've tried....plus with the bulk discount they are a great value!

Pros: Long life, smooth feel, and 'the' sound.
For that original sound, I prefer these strings. The round core makes the string slightly more flexible - and the feel of the strings is great.
