  • La Bella Silver-Plated Series Acoustic Guitar Medium

    Silver-Plated Series

    La Bella’s Silver-Plated sets are made with silver-plated copper wire, hand-wound on a steel core. First introduced by La Bella in the 1940s, this traditional style of string has slightly less tension than bronze or brass wound strings. As a result, our Silver-Plated strings produce a uniquely clean and crisp tone.

  • La Bella Slack-Key Guitar Pure Nickel 15-56

    Pure Nickel Series

    La Bella's Pure Nickel sets are made with 100% pure nickel, producing a warm tone compared to a bright tone characteristic of nickel-plated strings. Contrary to popular belief, a round core is more likely to generate an unwanted buzzing sound, so we only use hexagonal cores. Additionally, our Pure Nickel strings’ flexibility, which is controlled by the angle of the winding, is ideal for Resophonic, Slack-Key and Hawaiian Lap Steel guitars.

  • La Bella Vapor Shield Acoustic Guitar Phosphor Bronze Custom Light

    THE FUTURE OF COATED STRINGS ARE NOT COATED

    Welcome to the next generation of extended-life strings. La Bella Vapor Shield™ strings are like no other string on the market because the surface of the string is modified during the treatment process. Coated strings are now a thing of the past.

    Using a highly sophisticated Ionic Vapor Process™ developed by Acoustic Science™, proprietary compounds are activated in a glow discharge electromagnetic plasma, and the surface of all strings are modified. The result is a string protected from dirt, oil, residue, and tarnishing. Most importantly, string playability and life is extended without flaking or compromising tone.

    THE LA BELLA VAPOR SHIELD™ DIFFERENCE. The technology behind La Bella Vapor Shield™ is unlike any other string. The entire surface and full-length of all strings are treated with a nucleated polymer vapor material that requires hours of complex prep and processing; no spraying or dipping. The
    results are unmatched.

    TONE. BRIGHTER than typical coated strings AND non-treated strings. Unlike traditional coated strings, Vapor Shield™ plain steel AND wound strings are treated, resulting in even tone.

    FEEL. The Ionic Vapor Process™ improves the string’s surface properties, resulting in SMOOTHER plain steel and wound strings vs. both typical coated and non-treated strings.

    LIFE-SPAN. Lasts 5x longer than non-treated strings.

    ENDURANCE. No flaking after extended play. Impervious to grime, tarnishing and oil residue.

  • Savarez Acoustic Jazz Guitar Extra Light Ball End S P Basses

    Savarez Acoustic Jazz Guitar Extra Light Ball End S P Basses

    Argentine strings were born more than 60 years ago and have been played by the most famous guitarists from Django REINHARDT to Raphaël FAYS, Boulou FERRE, Pierre LACOMBE, ROMANE, Patrick SAUSSOIS and many others...

    They ignored the crises and fashions and remain the favourite choice for musicians seeking their original and unrivalled sound.

    Used by a great number of renowned musicians and instrument makers world-wide, they are perfectly suited for the legendary SELMER-MACCAFERRI guitars which continue to be made by highly skilled luthiers who perpetuate their existence.

    As they benefit from new winding techniques that have been incorporated in the manufacturing proceá, ARGENTINE strings offer a perfect homogeneity between the steel core and the silver-plated metal strip wrapped over, and as a result they resist better to hard use.

    Their increased resistance is also the result of the use of the most reliable and the finest raw materials perfectly adapted to the very specific needs of musical strings.

    They have a brilliant and clear sound.
    They provide much power.
    They have a very rich tone.

    They are the only ones to reproduce the authentic ‘Manouche’ Jazz sound.
