Need to play a low tension string for a classical guitar?
November 5, 2022
I must start this review by saying that I've always loved high tension strings. I've injured my pinky and I can't just "play through" this injury, 2 months have gone by and I still have pain. So I thought perhaps a low tension string would help.

First these strings are playable in an hour of putting them on the guitar!!! They seemed to settle in a day. I'm used to just tuning a guitar constantly for a day before it starts to be playable. And 3 days before settled.

The sound is good, if I didn't play too dynamically people wouldn't notice any change. I don't feel like I'm missing any musicality, I usually play a Savarez High Tension with tons of "POW". My finger started getting better in a few days. I think a low tension string is good if you want to take good care of your guitar. I can see how the guitar top is deforming a bit after decades of playing high tension strings. To really develop all your musicality and to hear your instrument to its full potential, I still think one should play a high tension string if it's not too much trouble.

The action on the finger feels gentle and part of the falange system

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.

2001 Light Tension strings are designed and recommended for older and more delicate instruments. These minimum tension strings provide the maximum volume and tonal range with the least amount of stress on the guitar's top, bridge and neck.
