Yes, Black (and sometimes Red) nylon strings have more of a treble/high end sound and are more distinctive in tone than the classic nylon.

  • Do you have any idea how the densities of different materials compare? For example, would if black string and clear string of a certain diameter were set to the same tension, which would produce a higher pitch? – supercat Dec 26 '14 at 22:13
