At JustStrings.com, we are a trusted source for a hard-to-find instrument strings and only carry quality string brands. La Bella manufactures three string set versions to accommodate the different types of the bandola. Predominate in multiple regions of South Central America, the bandola instrument is a flat-backed lute played similar to a mandolin with tremolo sustain. Although many modern bandolas feature steel strings with five or six courses, the traditional bandola guitar features only four single nylon strings. La Bella manufactures 14-string and 16-string sets with plain steel strings and silver-plated wound strings. The 16-string bandola is strung with three strings for the four upper courses, and the bottom courses are double strung. The 14-string set is similar but drops one of the double, bottom courses. These bandola instruments are tuned similar to a standard guitar tuning. La Bella also manufactures traditional bandola string sets. Featuring two plain nylon strings and two golden alloy wound nylon strings, the set for a traditional bandola is tuned A-D-A-E. JustStrings.com has fantastic prices on bandola strings, and you always get our great customer service.
