La Bella

collapse expand iconDescription

Created for players who demand a purity of tone, the La Bella Argento Pure Silver set includes handmade bass strings with a rich sonority superior to many plated wound strings available on the market. When played, the initial articulated note does not fluctuate from pitch but reveals a penetrating sound in the bass register. This can only be achieved with 99% solid silver wire. Any other less precious metal cannot duplicate their substantial feel.

La Bella Nylon #202 treble strings are the perfect counterpart to the Argento pure silver basses. These trebles are extruded as a monofilament that will not fray and offer an unmatched aural transparency and extraordinary sound production. In contrast to the more traditional glass-smooth Nylon #202 trebles, these special formula high-density buffed strings have a finely textured surface and are perfectly balanced for the basses. Noiseless and durable, these quality trebles maintain both a clarity of sound and a memory for pitch._

Note: Due to the high silver content of these strings, they're suitable for concerts and recording, and not every day playing as they're more delicate than a standard classical guitar set. La Bella suggests practicing with their 2001 Series and playing their Argento series for "special occasions" like recording and concerts.
