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.
The Silk and Steel wound strings have silver-plated copper wire wound on pure silk filaments wrapped over a steel core. Preferred by fingerstyle guitarists for their great volume and mellow tone, these strings are meticulously hand-wound using a pure Italian silk underlay and have less tension than standard steel or bronze wound strings.
LaBella’s acoustic guitar sets are comprised of perfectly balanced strings. 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.
