Yesterday evening I changed strings on my new Fritz Ober maple guitar (Ex-dofpic). Switched from Savarez Cantiga basses and Mari e and h trebles (g string alsways Knobloch carbon) to a set of La Bella 2001 MT. I subscribe to what some others have said in this thread. La Bella provides quite a firm left hand feeling. I would not say stiff, but definitely stiffer than my previous combo. I like it somehow, one has to dig into. Soundwise they fit very well to the transparent (not brittle) Torres/Hauser style of the Ober. Very clear and with a remarkable separation of notes, most of all in the mid ranges. I can hear more details than with Cantiga. The basses are slightly less mellow, trebles full and sweet, Mari sounded a bit thinner in comparison. Conclusion: Bold playing feeling and sound character. Recommendable set.
