La Bella 12 String ~ Silk & Steel
August 26, 2017
I discovered many years ago that silk and steel give a more balanced, deep, gentle bass, rather than the high pitch hue that comes off of phosphor bronze. I have my own finger picking style on the 12 string using my thumb for "back picking" to get the octaves strings separately. I have always preferred LaBella. As the other customer mentioned, fews years back, I started playing again, and no store carried them ! Thank you Just Strings !

About 20 years ago I used to use LaBella silk and steel strings for a guitar I had back then. I purchased a "Songbird" 12 string about 4 years ago and searched locally for the same strings but no luck at all. I heard about JustStrings and figured I'd take a look and to my surprise you had the strings I wanted. I ordered a set of these strings, and within about 12 days they came! I installed the strings and my guitar sounds like it should, absolutely beautiful! Thank you JustStrings you made my day!

12 string magic

I have a 45 year old Guild 12 string and I wouldn't use anything else. The sound is perfectly balanced-no boomy lows. Soft to the touch and sounds like a harpsichord. An old luthier once told me to use nothing else on my guitar and since then I never have.

La Bella Acoustic Steel String

"LaBella's acoustic guitar sets are comprised of perfectly balanced strings and are available in a choice of many different gauges. Accommodating today's acoustic players and their instruments, these varied set designs present many options for stringing. Only the finest American-made materials are used -- high quality plain steel and superior bronze alloys. Handcrafted by skilled technicians, LaBella guarantees every string that leaves the factory.

Over the centuries, the problem of prolonging the life of metal strings has plagued both players and string makers. Today, some manufacturers have discovered a quick fix method to prevent oxidation from occuring. They coat the metal strings with a polymer or synthetic material. This process stifles the wound string's sound production and does not guarantee a longer life. Any surface treatment deadens the natural transmitting powers of the string and dampens the high overtones associated with a good wound acoustic guitar string.

 

12-String Guitar

In the Twenties and Thirties, the 12-string guitar was popular with Delta Blues players especially "Leadbelly". Today, both folk singers and Hawaiian "slack-key" guitarists prefer this double string instrument."
