Super Alloys

The SUPER ALLOY 52 SERIES appeals to contemporary bassists because these strings are both bright and tarnish-proof. The design of the outer wrap contains a high-iron content (48%), which increases the strings’ magnetic properties, thus enhancing its electronic response. The wrap’s alloy also includes a high content of nickel (52%) preventing the strings from tarnishing. Unlike coated strings, the composition of SUPER ALLOY 52s never compromises tone and clarity.

  1. Bright, enhanced electronic response

  2. Tension: Light

  3. String Gauges: .042, .060, .080, .100

  4. Made in the USA with American Wire

  5. Packaged using MAP Technology (Modified Atmosphere Packaging) to prevent tarnishing and ensure freshness






La Bella Super Steps Bass - Over the past 2 decades, the electric bass has shifted from the rythm section to center stage as bassists have assumed the soloist role. With SUPER STEPS, La Bella has followed suit by specifically designing strings to match these tecnological advances and developing them over a period of years with input from the inner circle of professional bassists.

INTRODUCING LA BELLA


“RX SERIES” 


ELECTRIC BASS STRINGS


 

“THE REMEDY YOUR BASS HAS BEEN CALLING FOR!”

 


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!



As with all La Bella bass sets, the entire Rx Series is Standard Long Scale and available in Short, Medium and Extra Long scales.


 












Historical Background

In the 17th century, the small town of Salle in the Abruzzi region of Italy was considered one of the string centers in Europe. Local church records reveal that the most important string manufacturing families were Berti, Dorazio, Ruffini and MARI. Famous throughout Europe for fabricating the finest gut strings for lutes, guitars and violins, their craft also included constructing some of the earliest strings for wire strung instruments.

 

Established in the 1640's in Salle, the Mari family became one of the suppliers of violin strings to both Amati and Stradivari in Cremona. Throughout the 18th and 19th centuries the "House of Mari" also operated a metal foundry that manufactured church bells.

 

In 1913, the two brothers, Emilio and Olinto Mari left the family business to seek new opportunities in America. They settled in New York City where they produced both gut and steel strings in their small apartment in lower Manhattan. As the word spread among musicians in the area, so did the popularity of their product. A local music store grew very fond of the high quality hand made strings the two brothers produced, and made them an offer to help expand. The first factory opened in the year 1914 on 170 Fifth Avenue. The American dream for the two young immigrants had arrived.  The business expanded in 1922 with the opening of a second factory in Lanciano, Abruzzi.

 

At the 1927 "First Exposition Trade Show" of Tripoli, North Africa, the Italian government awarded the "Gold Medal Diploma" to the company for their dedication and excellence as manufacturers. As a leading producer of high quality strings for the entire violin family including the harp, E. & O. Mari offered both " La Preferita" and the "La Bella Brand" of orchestral gut strings. Since the twenties the trade name " La Bella" has remained to describe a superior product. 

 

In 1937, with the outbreak of World War II on the horizon, E. & O. Mari decided to close their Italian factory. During the early Forties, the Manhattan operation moved to Long Island City, New York and remained there nearly forty years. Changing locations in 1981, the factory's present site is in Newburgh, New York.

 

Today E. & O. Mari/ La Bella Strings is still a family owned and operated company - passed from Olinto Mari to his daughter Elisabetta Mari and her son Richard Mari Cocco Jr., President and her grandson Eric Cocco, Vice-President. An advocate of the arts and music education worldwide- E. & O. Mari sponsors jazz and rock performance clinics, professional artist appearances and residencies. La Bella also supports many guitar festivals and competitions by subsidizing scholarships and awards.
