Oasis – GPX Normal Tension Strings
Ever since we introduced our original GPX high tension strings, we have heard comments like, “love the tone, but would prefer lower tension strings.”
Not wanting to disappoint, we developed a normal tension set and have been sampling these strings through the Delcamp Classical Guitar Forum since early February 2009.
The response has been overwhelmingly positive!

Carbon treble* strings are notorious for intonation issues, usually because the diameter varies so much over the length of the string. To solve this problem, we reformulated our GPX™ Carbon Treble classical guitar strings for unsurpassed diameter accuracy. Laser micrometer technology ensures that Oasis® only packages “true” strings, enabling your guitar to play in tune from the first fret through the higher positions.
Ever since we introduced our original GPX™ high tension strings, we’ve heard that some customers, “love the tone, but would prefer lower tension strings.” They inspired us to develop a set of normal tension strings. We’ve been sampling these strings through the Delcamp Classical Guitar Forum since early February 2009. The response has been overwhelmingly positive!
*Carbon trebles aren’t just your typical carbon fiber. They are made of pvdf (polyvinylidene fluoride), a thermoplastic fluoropolymer with 80% greater density than nylon. This allows for a thinner string to have the same mass as nylon for a given string tension.
