Yamaha NS110 is a cheap and readily available string for classical guitar. However, I had never used them before because I didn’t have a good image of them. Recently, I did a survey on the best-selling strings on various online stores and found that NS110 was very popular, so I became interested and tried it.
The following article summarizes the string reviews/impressions/information articles in this blog
Yamaha’s low-cost classical guitar strings
NS110 is Yamaha’s low-cost version of classical guitar strings. NS110 are Yamaha’s low-cost classical guitar strings.
Yamaha also sells a set of strings called the Grand Concert (S10), which is almost twice the price of the NS110 (990 yen) and the S10 (1,870 yen).
NS110 can be obtained for around 600 yen at retail, and as far as I knowThe cheapest you can buy in Japan from famous manufacturers Classical Guitar Strings As far as I know.
They are also classical guitar strings that can be found at any music store, thanks to Yamaha’s strong domestic sales network.

Popular, though often not available in classical guitar specialty stores
On the other hand, theMost classical guitar stores do not carry the NS110. is.
For example, the Aura online store sells only grand concert strings, and the Hyundai Guitar online store does not sell Yamaha strings.
Nevertheless, when I surveyed the best-selling classical guitar string rankings of online stores, I found that many of them were at the top of the list.
Could it be that many classical guitar players just don’t know what the NS110 is capable of? I’ve been playing for 30 years, but this is the first time I’ve picked up a Yamaha NS110.
Cheap but careful packaging
The package looks like this.
There is a tab on the back for displaying the strings by hooking them to a stick, giving the impression of an old-fashioned classical guitar string package.
Surprisingly, it seems to beIt says “Made in Japan” and is made in Japan. The grand concert strings were made in Indonesia. The grand concert strings were made in Indonesia, but I wonder if the cheaper ones are made in Japan? Or is the manufacturing location different for each lot?
I was also surprised at what was inside. As you can see in the picture belowEach string is individually packaged for this price. The strings are in
In the case of low-cost strings, such as the Hannabach 500, all the strings are often packaged in one package to reduce the cost, but the NS110 strings are all individually wrapped.
In addition, the string number is written in large letters, which is a nice feature that prevents you from putting the wrong strings on.
As a side note, there is a “plastic” mark in the lower right corner, which I thought was indeed a string from a Japanese manufacturer.
The end treatment of the bass string looks like this.
Augustine strings also have this kind of looped tip structure, but you don’t see many of these strings these days, and they look like good old classical guitar strings.
Monochrome sound, soft sound but hard to make sharp sound
My impression when I actually strung it on my guitar wasMonochrome with no sense of color in the sound I think it is a good guitar.
The overall sound is soft, which is good in itself, but .It’s hard to get a sharp sound, and no matter how I play it, I get a soft sound. It’s a good sound in itself.
This is a bit of a disappointing point, since classical guitar is known for its richness of tone.
EspeciallySixth string sounds fuzzy. and I can’t get a massive sound out of it.
This is one area where they are not as good as the top strings.
Incidentally, Yamaha classical guitars, except for the cheapest CG102, use grand concert strings or Augustin blue for the bass strings (see: GC series, CG series ).
I wonder if this means that Yamaha is not confident in the sound of the NS110…
On the other hand.The treble strings are still soft, but surprisingly not bad. On the other hand. On the other hand, it sounds good all the way to the high position.
Weak tension, easy to play, good pitch.
However, the NS110 is not all bad.
First of all, theThe tension is low, very easy to hold with the left hand, and easy to play with the right hand. First of all, it is a
As for the string thickness, it’s not that much, but when I actually play it, I get the impression that it’s very low (tension is not disclosed).
I’m also wondering ifGood pitch on treble strings. I’m also very pleased with the sound. This is the kind of thing that is made by Yamaha and made in Japan.
Furthermore, a monochrome sound means that the sound will be the same no matter how you play it.It is less sensitive to touch and reduces the number of right hand mistaches. A monochrome sound means that the sound will be the same no matter how you play it.
Yamaha NS110 is a good string for classical guitar beginners.
Based on this impression, IYamaha NS110 is a good string for beginners of classical guitar I thought it was a good choice.
Because they are less taut, easier to play, and less sensitive to touch, I think these strings are better suited for people who are working on their basic skills.
The price is also in the low 600 yen range, which is great for beginners who haven’t yet decided whether to get into classical guitar in earnest.
I like that they are higher quality and more readily available than strings from unfamiliar manufacturers such as PLAYTECH.
Silent guitars, practice guitars, etc.You may want to stretch it on something that is not your main guitar. I don’t know.
On the other hand, if you want to fully enjoy the sound of a classical guitar, I would recommend you to go for the cheaper strings from other manufacturers such as Hannabach 500.
The availability of these products is lower than Yamaha’s, but you can easily buy them from online stores. Please refer to the following article.
I wrote some harsh things about the sound, but I felt that it was a good quality string.Well-made, high quality strings for beginners I felt that it was a good choice for me.
If possible, I would like to see Yamaha come out with new modern classical guitar strings in the future…
