Augustine Carbon strings represent a newer innovation from Augustine, designed to provide classical guitarists with a modern alternative to traditional nylon strings. These strings are made with a combination of materials, typically incorporating carbon fiber into the treble strings.

Carbon fiber offers several advantages over traditional nylon for guitar strings. It tends to be more durable and resistant to changes in temperature and humidity, which can help maintain consistent tone and playability over time. Additionally, carbon strings often produce a brighter and more articulate sound compared to nylon, with enhanced projection and clarity.

Augustine Carbon strings are favoured by many classical guitarists who appreciate their modern sound and responsiveness. They offer a balance between the warmth and richness of traditional nylon strings and the crispness and projection of carbon fiber. This makes them suitable for a wide range of musical styles and performance settings.
