Item Description

La Bella is proud to re-introduce one of the best-selling electric guitar sets of all-time, "The Bender" strings. Given today's trend in capturing vintage tone, we recognize the need for a guitar string that epitomizes vintage by bringing back the same string played throughout the most influential decades of Rock 'n' Roll music.

La Bella made "The Bender" strings under the La Bella brand, other string manufacturers and the biggest guitar builders worldwide in the 1960s and 1970s, making it the most played string on the market. "The Bender" was featured in Guitar World Magazine's 20th Anniversary Issue, "The 20 Who Mattered," featuring players and companies that shaped Rock 'n' Roll.

La Bella reached deep into their archives to bring back the same string construction used during that very era. As pioneers in nickel-plated steel electric guitar strings, La Bella used the same exact formula of nickel used in the original "Bender" guitar string. The result is the most authentic vintage electric guitar string on the market.

Come discover "The Original Vintage" with The Bender strings!

Sounds good, but flawed manufacturing
May 14, 2021
I was impressed by the sound, very full and harmonically rich, but I noticed the high e string kept detuning. Eventually, the high e just snapped, but it didn't break; the winding at the ball end came undone. I had 3 other sets and checked the e strings, and the winding at the ball end is very minimal. Sure enough, same thing happened to all the other sets I tried.

In short: sounds and feels good, but the strings need more winding at the ball end, and they need to be wound tighter.
  • Sounds great, full and harmonically rich.
  • Strings are loosely wound at the ball end leading to tuning instability, and the high e string, especially, prone to coming undone at the ball end.

So far, the best set...
April 26, 2020
I've tried many different brands (I used to be an instrument seller) and this is the best set I've ever tried... They feel great and slide well, no metallic squeaks, and the harmonic content is very rich and smooth. They sound a bit vintage, I guess. When you do chords, the different strings blend very well together, it's very musical. They don't have beefy lows, but that's what I like. I would not necessarily recommend them if you play metal, but for everything else, they are magical.
