Medium gauge - .011 .015 .023 .029 .037 .046
Silver plated copper
Red silk winding
Manufactured by Savarez in France.
Medium gauge Argentine strings usually sound best on long scale Selmer style guitars (670mm or longer) with lower action or short scale guitars (640mm).
Most Selmer style tailpieces will take both loop end or ball end strings. There is no difference in sound or playability between the two.

Argentine 1510MF is the only string I use on my Shelley Park and my Dupont. Yes,I've tried out all the brands of Gypsy Jazz strings and I always come back to this one. Djangobooks gives me great service and I receive my order promptly. Thanks Djangobooks.com.

Been buying strings ever since I found this site and including shipping to Canada, I am still saving money as opposed to order them from the local music store! One day I'll buy one of the available manouche guitar to add to the collection. Best regards,

Pros: Price, quality, intonation
A great deal and great strings. The standard for us gypsy jazzers for sure. I have tried several other brands but keep coming back to the Argentines because of the consistent tone and quality.

Great strings. Would love to see a super bulk Oder option; there's a discount for buying a pack of five, but what about a bit more for 10, and then a tad bit more for ordering 20? Would be helpful to those who play (and thus) order a lot/frequently.

Pros: The right sound and feel
Cons: Still not inexpensive
After trying virtually every type of gypsy guitar string, I find myself returning, again, to the Argentine sets. They are the benchmark for sound, feel and longevity. I give the 4 out of 5, because there's always hope for improvement.

Hey, Argentine string are THE original since Django. They hold the tune once tuned and the sound is the real one. My teacher is involved in the Django Reinhardt-family and played with Joseph. He plays only Argentine, because they're the best.

Pros: great sounding strings, great price
I've been using Argentine strings for years, and had great experience purchasing in bulk from djangobooks. The phone service was excellent when I needed assistance placing the online order and the strings arrived in my mailbox much sooner than I expected! Thanks, Djangobooks!

I recently bought a Gitane DG255 and have found the Argentine strings are a perfect match, once I got the string gauge correct - ie 10. I´ve also been pleasantly surprised that the strings still retain that "new" sound after hours of playing.
