La Bella Strings Announces RX Series Bass Strings

Wound on a hexagonal core to prevent buzzing and optimal intonation, the Rx Series is crafted with hard-temper wire from American wire mills.

Newburgh, NY (September 12, 2013) -- As the innovators of today’s best-selling electric bass strings like Deep Talkin’ Bass Flat Wounds, Black Nylon Tape Wounds and the 0760M Original “1954” set, La Bella Strings is proud to introduce the latest achievement in bass strings: the Rx Series. Representing the culmination of months of R&D alongside La Bella Strings’ Inner Circle of Artists, the Rx Series has received acclaim from the best bass players in the world across all styles and genres of music.

Available in both Stainless Steel and Nickel-Plated Steel, the Rx Series has a unique round wound construction that ensures the best playability of any round wound electric bass set on the market. Wound on a hexagonal core to prevent buzzing and optimal intonation, the Rx Series is crafted with hard-temper wire from American wire mills. This extra attention to quality means that each and every player receives the highest-end Nickel-Plated and Stainless Steel on the market.

More flexible and lighter in tension compared to La Bella Strings’ current SN & M Series, players will find the Rx Series more comfortable to play on any style of bass. Side effects may include brighter sounding strings, incredible intonation and long-lasting playability. The Rx Series is just the remedy your bass has been calling for!

The Rx Series is available in both Stainless Steel & Nickel-Plated Steel, in 4, 5, and 6-String models. Each set is available in 4 different gauges (Model A, B, C, and D) for a total of 24 new sets, which means each and every player is bound to find the perfect set for his or her bass!

Walrus Audio Slötvå


Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time.
