When Emilio and Olinto Mari arrived at Ellis Island prior to the First World War they were leaving behind a family music string production business begun in Italy in the 1640’s. Seeing the lack of quality strings available for musicians in their new home they began producing both gut and steel strings in their small Lower Manhattan apartment. Like so many other immigrants to the New World the Mari brothers drew on the knowledge of their past and created something new and lasting, so that from the humble beginnings of an apartment in Lower Manhattan, La Bella Strings was born and grew to become one of the leading producers of high quality strings for both bowed and fretted instruments.
La Bella Strings now boast a range that includes fine strings for virtually every kind of stringed instrument. Abreast of the ever changing technology, La Bella offer over 2000 different strings in their range, strings that are suitable for every type and style of music.
