La Bella VSE942 Vapor Shield Nickel 9-42
THE FUTURE OF COATED STRINGS ARE NOT COATED.
Welcome to the next generation of extended-life strings. La Bella Vapor Shield™ strings are like no other string on the market because the surface of the string is modified during the treatment process. Coated strings are now a thing of the past.
NO FLAKES, NO CRACKS, NO PEELING. NO MUFFLED TONE.
Using a highly sophisticated Ionic Vapor Process™ developed by Acoustic Science, proprietary compounds are activated in a glow discharge electromagnetic plasma, and the surface of all strings are modified. The result is a string protected from dirt, oil, residue, and tarnishing. Most importantly, string playability and life is extended without flaking or compromising tone.
THE LA BELLA VAPOR SHIELD™ DIFFERENCE. The technology behind La Bella Vapor Shield™ is unlike any other string. The entire surface and full-length of all strings are treated with a nucleated polymer vapor material that requires hours of complex prep and processing; no spraying or dipping. The results are unmatched:
TONE. BRIGHTER than typical coated strings AND non-treated strings. Unlike traditional coated strings, Vapor Shield™ plain steel AND wound strings are treated, resulting in even tone.
FEEL. The Ionic Vapor Process™ improves the string’s surface properties, resulting in SMOOTHER plain steel and wound strings vs. both typical coated and non-treated strings.
LIFE-SPAN. Lasts 5x longer than non-treated strings.
ENDURANCE. No flaking after extended play. Impervious to grime, tarnishing and oil residue.
