THE lO W DOWN
THE STRiNG'S
THE THiNG
La Bella and SIT Strings both have new
products out in time for Summer NAMM,
where one of our dedicated bass experts
will be giving them a thorough workout,
we promise you that. First up, La Bella
Vapor Shield are, it says here, “like no
other string on the market because
the surface of the string is modified
during the treatment process. Using
a highly sophisticated Ionic Vapor
Process developed by Acoustic Science,
proprietary compounds are activated in a
glow discharge electromagnetic plasma,
modifying the string's entire surface. The
result is a string protected from grime,
tarnishing, and oil residue” Now is that
futuristic or what?
As for SIT, they tell us: “The RB Bass
String starts with a 92/8 phosphor
bronze under-wrap wire, over a
hardtempered hexagonal steel core.
Then, the Fusion Winding process uses
electricity to fuse the phosphor bronze
wrap to the core. The final wrap is
available in either nickel plated steel or
stainless steel. This innovative method is
designed to fuse a string into one super-
flexible mass, thus eliminating dead
spots.” Look out for tests as soon as they
land on our doormat.

GLENNETH RETURNS!
The acclaimed bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes, sometime of Trapeze, Deep Purple, Black
Sabbath, Hughes/Thrall, Black Country Communion and California Breed, returns to the
UK and Europe for a series of live dates. “After being studio bound for the past few months
and then touring with California Breed late last year, where I received the most incredible
live audience reaction to my appearances while out with Alter Bridge and Slash, I felt it
long overdue for a solo tour of my own,” Hughes tells us. See you there.
