Well Balanced Tone
December 19, 2020
I bought these for a Seagull 12 string guitar. I had the heavy strings on it when I first got it. Most companies only make up to mediums for 12 strings due to the tension on the neck. I worry about that too and ordered mediums this time. They are very well balanced and have a tone which none of the strings lack. I had 2 or 3 other types of strings some which were too bright, some which were dull and some which certain strings seem to have lower output than the rest. I have a Baby Taylor which I usually use DR strings on. The next time I change strings I am going to try these. I am very Impressed.

LaBella Silk & Steel Guitar Strings
May 3, 2010
I have been using La Bella Silk & Steel strings on my acoustic 6- and 12- string guitars since 1967, when I was introduced to them by my fellow coffeehouse guitarists in Greenwich Village. For the most beautiful sound and texture, they are beyond compare. They are as kind to the fingers as they are sweet to the ears. I swear by them.

Best strings ever!

I have discoverd the secret of making your 12 string sound like the song of angels rather than a collection of rusty slinkys! A 12 string is a powerful instrument and needs light silky strings, hit something hard with something soft, hit something soft with something hard- my Aikido teacher always said. These will make your guitar sound like a totally different instrument!

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."
