Nickel 200 Roller Wound

The roller wound technique was first used in the production of violin strings and now has been adopted for the manufacturing of both electric bass and electric guitar strings. This roller wound method compresses and converts the string from a round contour to an oval-shaped profile producing a smoother and more flexible string. Today we are utilizing the same technique on our new Nickel 200 Roller Wound Jazz Guitar set.

The primary ingredient for this new series of the Nickel 200 exterior wrap. This material is softer than the standard nickel-plated steel wire -- commonplace in most guitar sets. Our new Nickel 200 Roller Wound Series have a softer touch with a warmer and mellower tone. This new construction offers the performer an opportunity to play with more expression and a wider musical palette of colors.
First used in the manufacture of violin strings, the La Bella roller wound production technique is now used for both electric bass and electric guitar strings. The procedure compresses and converts the string from round to oval shaped, which makes it smoother to the touch and more flexible. La Bella uses the same traditional methods for their roller wound strings. We have the La Bella Nickel 200 Roller Wound electric guitar strings. The type of nickel used is softer than the usual nickel-plated steel wire found in guitar strings. This makes the strings more comfortable to play and provides a warm, mellow tone. We have the La Bella roller wound strings in 4 different gauge sets Light (.009 to .046), Regular (.010 to .046), Medium (.011 to .052) and Jazz Light (.012 to .052). Our customers report an excellent, balanced tone, long string life and a smooth feel for easy bending, allowing for a more expressive performance style.
