Best strings I've used
November 3, 2015
These strings have a great balanced tone, excellent durability. Is just better than others, much more expensive. If you want to sound like a pro and you do not have a lot of money this is the best set.

This set will make a piece of junk sound good and a decent student instrument sound great! Worth every penny and blows the doors off of other sets in this price range!

excellent classical string
January 30, 2010
The La Bella 2000s series are a modern formulation that give a strong but smooth attack. I use these strings on a high-end cedar top to give more presence and a tighter sound ( more of a "drier" spruce-top tone).

Highly recommended

"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 newest addition to this product line, the 2001 Hard Tension strings are designed to meet the needs of contemporary guitarists adn luthiers. These high tension strings provide a superior strenght and clarity of sound - a requirement for performing modern technique on today's concert guitars.
