Nylon is classical. Softer on fingers. Usually on a smaller bodied guitar with a wider neck. Steel strings are on the usual, common guitar. Strings are thinner.
Nylon strings are lower tension in comparison to steel strings and have a warmer tone than steel string, thus making steel strings higher tension than nylon with a brighter tone than nylon strings.
Animal gut, nylon, or metal.
Yes. Steel string guitars are designed to withstand a great deal of tension created by the strings and nylon strings have far less tension. Just don't put steel strings on a nylon string guitar.
The term acoustic guitar in general do not refer to classical guitar. A typical guitar has narrower neck and steel string, classical guitar has wider neck and nylon string SongScouting: Guitars are either acoustic or electric. A classical (sometimes called "folk") guitar is a type of acoustic guitar with a wider neck (for easier fingering with the right hand). An acoustic guitar can come nylon or steel strung. Note: never string a nylon guitar with steel strings or you may snap the neck.
yes. But it is easier on your fingers
When we say classical guitar, it usually means guitar with three steel string and three nylon string. Acoustic guitar has six steel string.
An acoustic guitar has bronze wound steel strings, a classical guitar has nylon strings. also the classical guitar has a wider neck. A standard acoustic guitar has a slimmer neck. nylon strings are more crisp sounding, steel strings have a twang when played. SongScouting: A classical guitar is a type of acoustic guitar. A guitar is acoustic or electric. An acoustic guitar may be nylon strung or steel strung. A 12 String Guitar is also an acoustic guitar as it is not electric (unless you install pickups). A classical guitar does, indeed, have a wider neck.
I would not advise this because most classical, or nylon string guitars do not have the steel reinforcing rod in the neck of the guitar that the steel string guitars have.
Yes, you can, but not on an electric guitar. It might not be recommended, but it definitely can be done.
The difference between nylon and dacron rope is that nylon stretch but dacron dose not!
Yes. It won't be very loud.
perhaps because it is the thinnest string made of nylon fiber. The low E and the A being thicker are stronger than the D and the G, B, and high e being made of solid nylon rather than nylon fiber are also most likely stronger than the d on a nylon string guitar.
an acoustic guitar usually has steel strings and a classical acoustic has nylon classical strings... two different sounds...
By normal I assume you mean a string made of Nylon. (looks like any other plastic) There are two general types of string - Nylon and Steel (which are usually not made of actual steel) Electric guitars usually use steel strings, and acoustic guitars use both nylon and steel. (although not at the same time - the metal-like strings on a nylon stringed guitar are wire wrapped nylon thread) As for using 'normal' Nylon strings on an electric guitar, I would not advise it. The steel strings used on guitars have a much higher tension than that of a nylon string. Electric guitars and Acoustic guitars with steel strings have a steel bar in their neck to stop them bending under the tension of the steel strings. Putting a low tension Nylon string on an electric guitar would not damage the guitar at all, but it would probably snap the string after a short time of playing, if not immediatly. You could give it a try though. Also, you would not hear any sound come through an amplifier unless you put a metal coating on the Nylon, as the pickups in an electric guitar only channel a sound signal when something magnetic passes over them.
Depends on the make, from 100 to 1000 dollars.
steel string, you can get ones made of copper or nylon if its a classical acoustic
Average price would be about $300
There are six or more strings on a classical guitar. The classical guitar is arranged with half nylon and half steel string that go in order from thickest to thinnest like this:6. E (Steel)5. A (Steel)4. D (Steel)3. G (Nylon)2. B (Nylon)1. e (Nylon)A classical guitar is sometimes smaller than an acoustic but is always identified by the half nylon half steel strings.
