    Pepe Romero Guilele sets work great on the Mini.

    1/4 size kids classical guitar strings work for E tuning

    LaBella FG 114
    Hannabach MT 890

    Or requinto strings for higher tunings

    Not a fan of the Aquila

    Its an old thread but figure the mini series are gaining more popularity since the OP

    On another forum, people experimented with other strings for the Mini and most agreed that the EJ44 29-45 Extra Hard sounds really good in E maybe a little better than the Cordoba strings. I tried it and agree that they are a good substitute for the Cordoba strings.

    ah, sorry to answer you so late guys!
    We are back form the NAMM show in Anheim CA.
    As you knows, we made the Mini sets for Cordoba groups. We are just the manufacturers not not the proprietor so we cannot distribuite this set around.
    Said that, during the meeting I have asked to the owner the permission to distribuite the MINI serts ourshelf by our distributors.
    I told them that there are huge problems to find the Mini set in EU and also in other Countries and many and many complaints that.
    ---
    These sets cannot be replaced by standard guitar sets, as the were designed for this kind of instrument. In other worlds: feet number 36 want shoes number 36, not 38.
    With other strings the tension maybe is not the right one while the sound duller (if nylon)
    Take care

    I made a little test.

    Cordoba E string set versus D'Addario EJ44 tuned in E

    1. Cordoba E string set: a. finger only, b. with a little nail
    2. EJ44 Extra Hard, tuned in E: a. finger only, b. with a little nail.

    Cordoba strings are used, EJ44 almost new.

    PS: I'm a great fan of Aquila, I use Ambra 800 on my romantic guitars and Aquila Lava on my ukuleles and Alchemia on one of my classical guitars.
    I bought a 25 $ ukulele, that sounded like fishing line on a cigarbox but with Aquila Lava strings it became a musical instrument.
