La Bella Flamenco 2001 Med Tension
July 27, 2011
I was very excited to try these. The D string began to shred at the 2nd fret only after 2 hours of playing. The A string began showing signs of fret wear after 4 hours. I primarily play Solea and Rhumba Flamenco and use high tension Giannini Classicos GENWPA which I can't seem to find anymore. The basses have a nice brilliant sound the trebles seemed muted and too soft/sloppy for picado for my tastes. I really wanted to love these:(

Labella 2001 med ten flamenco strings
November 27, 2009
On my cypress flamenco guitar, these are lively and sharp and sound very powerful on my instrument. They are also very long lasting.

The trebles sound brighter than the med hard 2001 classical's but I prefer the classical's bass strings so sometimes I combine them.

If anyone knows better strings please comment.

I can only sperak of my own experience and others may disagree. I have a 1997 La Patrie Collection classical. It had old unknown strings on it. I installed D'Addario hard tension strings and was diappointed with the immediate results although they sounded better after a week. On a lark I bought a set of LaBella mediums and a set of old standy D'Addario normal tension. I installed the LaBellas and immedaitely removed them. I found the basses to be thin and lifeless. To be fair, I should have left them on a couple weeks, maybe their tone would develop, but I didn't have the patience. I then installed the normal tension D'Addarios and found them to be an immedaite improvement.

"La Bella's newest string series - premium quality nylon and wound strings for both classical and flamenco guitars."

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 quintessential flamenco set, Flamenco 2001 Medium Tension strings produce a sound that is robust and luminous yet extremely flexible. Sensitive to the touch and responsive to the slightest change in tone or attack, these strings have a tremendous ease of playing that will appeal to most players.
