La Bella Classical Guitar Strings

La Bella/E. & O. Mari Inc. is a family-owned, American company that has been manufacturing strings for more than a century. La Bella created the first nylon classical guitar strings, and has specialized in them ever since. Today, they make classical strings for everything from children’s fractional guitars to guitars played by the most discerning concert artists.

La Bella’s most popular classical line is the 2001 Series. These classical guitar strings are noted for their very bright tone and consistent sound production. The trebles are made from a proprietary high density nylon monofilament that offers superior sensitivity to the touch, great aural transparency, and fantastic sound projection. The silver-plated bass strings have a greater ratio of wire wound wrapping to nylon filament core, producing a clear, sustaining tone. The 2001 Series is available in five tensions: light, medium, medium hard, hard, and extra hard.

Two other highlights in La Bella's catalog are the Argento Pure Silver and the Argento Hand Polished Pure Silver strings, both of which are exceptional choices for concert guitars. The higher percentage of silver in these strings creates a strong fundamental that enhances the entire tonal range through the principle of sympathetic vibration.

The Argento Hand Polished Pure Silver strings are, in our opinion, the best highly polished strings available from any manufacturer. La Bella pairs clear nylon trebles with basses that are hand wound with 99 percent pure silver wire, then hand polished to smooth the surface for a frictionless feel. The tonal range is amazing — all the way from bright to dark — and the strings last a long time.
