Tony has used La Bella strings since 1990. La Bella is the trade mark of E&O Mari, a family run company based in Newburgh, New York state. People may be surprised to know that they are one of the few string companies that actually do make strings! This means that when we make requests regarding the actual string construction, e.g. extra reinforcement at the ball end of some of Tony’s very light gauges, we know that we will be accommodated.
Here are Tony’s string gauges on the live guitars:-
For the D# tuning,
.008p, .008p, .011p, .018w, .024w, .032w.
For the C# tuning,
.009p, .010p, .012p, .020w, .032w, .042w.
