The Silk & Steel wound strings have silver-plated copper wire wound on pure silk filaments wrapped over a steel core.

Preferred by finger-style guitarists for their great volume and mellow tone, these strings are meticulously hand-wound using a pure Italian silk underlay and have less tension than standard steel or bronze wound strings.

Perfect!
I always liked how silk & steel sets sounded, but until I found La Bella brand, the available gauges were all .011 - .048 or so -- way too light for the kind of tone I wanted. Finally, though, I found these, the .012s, with a low E that's about .051 or so, and they're everything good about silk and steel, that warm, soft tone, but not flimsy. They last a good long time, and they're not outrageously priced -- so yipee! I'm sold for years to come. Ideal for fingerstyle, and they respond well to a pick.

Sweet warm tone
I tried many light gauge steel strings over the years on my Gibson J45V and I always hated the first few weeks when they sounded cold and jangly which would warm with time. Umanov's in the Village advised La Bella's Silk strings and I was hooked from the first strum. It has that sweet warm 'old-timey' Gibson tone on old Woody G. records. I use lights and change quarterly. Highly recommended for that warm tone. S&B ships fast and no import duty or taxes to Canada.

Dull.
Perhaps it was a bad set; I found these strings to be flat and devoid of any resonance.
ConsPoor winding. Dead core.

La Bella 710L Silk and Steel Acoustic strings
I have been using Martin's Silk and Steel strings, and was very satisfied with them. I then tried them on a guitar - Oscar Schmidt OG 8S. The Martins did not give enough bottom end to the guitar. I then tried D'Addario, same issue. Although these strings worked grate on other guitars, I wanted to stay with Silk and Steel. Then I noticed that the La Bella's had a heavier bottom E string. It turned out to be just what I needed. The tone is very sweet. The strings are very responsive to my style of rhythm playing. I would recommend them highly.

La Bella 710L Silk and Steel Acoustic Guitaar Striings
I started using La Bella Silk and Steel's on Gibson Hummingbird about 35 years ago and continue to do so to this day. I tried Martin's a couple of times with unsatifactory results (poor tone and short life) and have simply never found anything else capable of giving such sweet voice to my ol' Gibson.
