not bad steel gypsy jazz strings for Cigano GJ 10

hi guys

I learnt from replies to my earlier post that regular nylon strings that classical players use can be used for gypsy guitars. I have Luthier strings in my flamenco guitar and I think I will try one day my Cigano with nylon Luthier strings. At the moment I would like to put steel strings to my Cigano. I know nothing about brands of gypsy jazz strings. I don't know which ones are of good quality and which ones are of bad quality. Therefore I need your help guys. Can you recommend any brand of steel gypsy jazz strings that would work well with my cigano? I know that Cigano is not top quality instrument and therefore I need strings could ' enhance' good sound from Cigano? Please, recommend strings that could produce nice sound from my Cigano GJ 10. It would be cool if recommended strings were available in Europe. I think I am going to use internet shop for buying strings.

    You can't go wrong with Argentines:

    Probably 90+% of players use these, even after (especially after) trying other brands.

    Argentines are a marked improvement over the strings that come from the Cigano factory.
