La Bella Black Nylon Tape

La Bella Black Nylon Tape

As shown in the photo. These strings are specifically for an archtop type jazz guitar. They are extra long, as required for a trapeze style tailpiece. The following is the desciption as quoted from the LaBella website.

"Why can’t I use this set on a guitar with a standard scale?” These strings are really long because they are made to fit jazz guitars that have tailpieces. The strings are 36″ from ball-end to silk. The silk should clear the nut and only the silk should wrap around the tuning post. You can wrap the tape wound portion around the tuning post, but if the string is too long, you will have to leave the excess tape wound portion of the string on the guitar because you cannot cut the nylon. You can only cut the silk. If you cut the nylon, the string will unravel. Note that not all jazz guitars have tailpieces, so make sure you measure the distance on your guitar from where the ball-end is located to 1/4″ past the nut. If that distance is around 36″, then these tape wound sets will fit your guitar".

Price: This price $12.

I have not tried these strings as yet as I don't have a small guitar to try them on, but Pirastro are known for high quality strings, and if these strings are in any way similar to the Pirastro Eva Pirazzi violin and viola strings then they will be outstanding.

Pirazzi Classical Guitar Strings

Pirazzi Classical Guitar Strings Pirazzi Classical Guitar Strings

These strings are an old model, made by Pirastro, that are no longer available.This is new old stock.

I have not tried these strings as yet, but Pirastro are known for high quality strings, and if these strings are in any way similar to the Pirastro Eva Pirazzi violin and viola strings then they will be outstanding. Two variations available. The standard roundwound, and the flat wound, designed for recording situations, or for those wanting to minimise string noise, they tend to facilitate quieter position changes. I have found that flatwound or "recording strings" as the are often called for classical guitar, tend not to have as bright a sound as the standard roundwound. Flatwounds are usually much more expensive.

This price $10 per set.
