Paper quality in charcoal drawing

Does type of paper also matter when it comes to charcoal drawing? I have came across many different types of paper but still searching for the best one. Lets just say for eg on this website , which is the best? Can I choose any of them? Please clarify.

That is a great question! paper does matter and you should try with several types of paper. The result will vary based on your techniques, style, the pressure you apply, the subjects you choose and so on ... As for me, I alternate between Canson Mi Tientes, Strathmore 500 series charcoal paper and Rives ....however, I dont make it a big deal in case I dont have one type of paper, I can easily substitute for another one. To me atleast, my technique matters more than the paper itself in achieving the final look I want.
Hope that answers your question
