La Bella Acoustic 12 String Guitar Silk & Steel Medium, .012 - .056, 710-12M5Sandra HaasMay 3, 2010I have been using La Bella Silk & Steel strings on my acoustic 6- and 12- string guitars since 1967, when I was introduced to them by my fellow coffeehouse guitarists in Greenwich Village. For the most beautiful sound and texture, they are beyond compare. They are as kind to the fingers as they are sweet to the ears. I swear by them.

La Bella Acoustic Steel String

"LaBella's acoustic guitar sets are comprised of perfectly balanced strings and are available in a choice of many different gauges. Accommodating today's acoustic players and their instruments, these varied set designs present many options for stringing. Only the finest American-made materials are used -- high quality plain steel and superior bronze alloys. Handcrafted by skilled technicians, LaBella guarantees every string that leaves the factory.

Over the centuries, the problem of prolonging the life of metal strings has plagued both players and string makers. Today, some manufacturers have discovered a quick fix method to prevent oxidation from occuring. They coat the metal strings with a polymer or synthetic material. This process stifles the wound string's sound production and does not guarantee a longer life. Any surface treatment deadens the natural transmitting powers of the string and dampens the high overtones associated with a good wound acoustic guitar string.

 

12-String Guitar

In the Twenties and Thirties, the 12-string guitar was popular with Delta Blues players especially "Leadbelly". Today, both folk singers and Hawaiian "slack-key" guitarists prefer this double string instrument."
