I liked them

The diameter is really small. . .but they stretched out and settles pretty quickly. They lack the volume and tone of a medium gauge but that's the price you pay for a lighter gauge.

I've had these strings for a few weeks now. I really like the lightness to them. They are currently on a full-size acoustic Fender that uses ball-end strings. No problem: I got some small jewelry stones from a craft shop, slipped them through each string, tie a knot at the end and insert them into my guitar.

For my guitar, it gave it a deeper and richer sound (a bit more mellow); which was what I was looking for. The basses give a longer sustain than my old classical phosphor strings (which works well for me; since I like to finger pick). The trebles are a bit thinner than those of the classical nylons I have on a beginner guitar by the same company, but they work nicely. Aesthetically, the 3 silver basses and 3 black trebles give my guitar a sharp appearance. I mainly use this guitar for finger picking traditional and classical spiritual Spanish songs. Definitely would buy these strings again when the time comes to replace them.

Having used several guitar strings over the years I was instantly impressed with the quality of sound, particularly the black trebles which will quite astonishingly outlast six sets of bases . The base D (fourth) is also much longer lasting than Hannabach or Savarez with very low oxidation and buildup at the right hand playing area. For me these strings in Light or medium tension give the true Flamenco sound with exceptional longevity. I play a Gerundino Flamenco "Negro"(Indian Rosewood back and sides) 1980 model which I purchased from Gerundino in Almeria in 1980 as well as a 1968 Tamura Flamenco signed by Hideoshi Tamura. These two guitars are totally different in character and construction but the La Bella strings give them a sound which is simply stunning.

I have two flamenco guitars that were crafted by Spanish master luthiers before nylon was invented. They were designed for gut strings. I've tried a lot of strings of various compositions and tensions and the La Bella Flamenco Lights produce the truest and most brilliant flamenco sound while being easy on the guitar. It's a bonus that they aren't very expensive.

2001 Series Classical Guitar Strings


"The 2001 Series Classical Guitar Strings are the product of years of intense research and development. During the formulation of the 2001 Series, prototypes were tested worldwide by fine performing artists and teachers. These guitarists expressed a need for classical guitar strings with a greater response, clarity and sustaining power. To meet this demand, La Bella redesigned both the treble and bass strings according to new specifications.

For this new product line company president, Richard Mari Cocco, developed a new synthetic monofilament nylon for the treble strings. Seeking new substances for creating superior strings he would not settle for the materials offered by the allied industries. Instead, Mr. Cocco formulated an innovative material called Nylon 202. Its development coalesced only after months of collaboration with engineers specializing in polymers.

Nylon 202 strings have a superior sensitivity to the touch. They are extruded as a monofilament that will not fray. Strings made with the multifilament properties of carbon fiber can unravel causing finger lacerations. Our new treble strings produce a greater aural transparency and are capable of extraordinary sound projection.

The new design for the bass strings equals the achievements of the high density Nylon 202 trebles. This construction improved the ratio of wire exterior wound wrapping to the nylon filament core. Different from the composition of other strings, these basses produce a clearer and more sustaining tone. The 2001 Series' unique string design surpasses all other classical guitar sets with their exceptional memory for pitch and consistent sound production.

The perfect strings for a 1929 Santos Blanca, many guitarists believe that Flamenco 2001 Light Tension strings create the most authentic flamenco sound available today. Recommended for older or very lightly constructed guitars, these strings produce a maximum volume and silvery brilliance with a minimal amount of stress on the guitar's neck, soundboard and bridge.
