The long history of Savarez classical guitar strings begins in 1770 in Lyon, France. They began making hand-rectified natural gut strings, and experimented with strings that were metal wound. Strings were also produced from silk and steel, and wound with brass and bronze. Since their early days, Savarez have been industry leaders in string research and development, at the forefront of advanced technology and innovation.
When nylon was discovered in the early 1900s, Savarez were the first to use this new material to make guitar strings. They were also the first to offer different tensions of classical guitar strings. Another important discovery was their rectifying process, which creates strings that are perfectly tuned and cylindrical. Savarez strings are recognized as one of the highest quality brands in the world.
