    Very good 5-string set.
    I think I had there nickel strings.
    Well balanced, even, strong sounding.

    +1. They actually "make" both nickel as well as steel strings. I have a set on my six-string that still have a touch of zing and brightness... 4 years after the fact. :rollno: (What can I say, I've moved away from the six in that time)

    Comparatively expensive compared to the competition if I recall, but IMO worth it. I'd purchase again if I hadn't just stocked up on discontinued Prisms, which are very close in tone - a touch more "raw", the Pedullas are more refined for steels.
  4. If anyone uses them, I'd like to know myself a bit more about them if you have aything to say...

    I played a set of the 45-105-128 steels. They were pretty much the same thing as the Labella Hard Rockin' Steels with the improvement of tapers on the E, A, and D. Nice set of strings. The the 128 taper from Labella is the best in the business in my experience. I may have to give there nickels a shot.

    The tapered La Bella strings are the Super Steps.
