12 String Sets
I just received a shipment of fresh 12 string sets in light and heavy from the good folks at La Bella. The Mari family has been making strings for a couple hundred years and they know their stuff.
The heavies are my standard sets which I've been using for a while. They are great for getting a Leadbelly sound. The lighter sets were put together by Frank Basile and myself for more of a McTell sound. They have a certain ring to them that the heavier strings don't, but lack the rumble of the heavy set. Both are intended to be tuned down to C, B or A, and the lighter sets are usually more suitable for older instrument.
If you're interested, they are $15 a set. Contact me at todd at fraulini.com.
