La Bella Strings Introduces the Copper White Nylon Tape Wound Series

The new Copper White Nylon Tape Wound strings are made with a transparent nylon wrapped over copper underlays.

Newburgh, NY (February 24, 2014) -- As the innovators of the Black and White Nylon Tape Wound bass set, La Bella introduces the Copper White Nylon Tape Wound Series. Unlike the classic White Nylon Tape Wounds, the new Copper White Nylon Tape Wound strings are made with a transparent nylon wrapped over copper underlays. The result is a warmer and more supple tone, while still allowing players to effortlessly glide from note to note.

The Copper White Nylon Series is extremely versatile and can be used for electric, fretless and acoustic basses. If you’re looking for a set of bass strings that growl like a beast, this warmer alternative is for you!

750C Copper White Nylon Tape Wound
Light, 4-String, .050, .065, .085, .105

760C Copper White Nylon Tape Wound
Standard, 4-String, .060, .070, .094, .115

All Copper White Nylon Tape Wound sets are also available in 5-String (.135 Low “B”) & 6-String (.043 High “C” & .135 Low “B”) models.

As with all La Bella bass sets, all Copper White Nylon Bass Series are Standard Long Scale, and available in Short, Medium and Extra Long scales.

Hawaiian koa has been a favorite of boutique acoustic builders for ages. It has a cool tone personality, somewhere between rosewood and mahogany. It can be used for both back and sides and for top wood, and it’s beautiful. It’s also pretty expensive. The good news is that Taylor’s new 724ce is built with a breed of Koa that actually helps players save a few bucks.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
