I was using the Labella's they sound pretty nice initially, but switched to
Hannabach carbons which have a much nicer G string. The black Labella die's
pretty fast. Really like the Hannabach's the current set has lived a much
brighter, longer life than any of the Labella's ever did.

I should know, I've been beating them to death trying to learn to play a
proper Bulerias for some time now. Amazingly the string's are surviving
well.

I´m playing a set of La Bella 820B on my negra right now. Works well and sounds very flamenco.
Other black trebles like La Bella 2001 or Daddario, i dont care for.

My sentiments too. I like the old school percussive sound they have. But just would like to add, it depends on the guitar. I have one guitar that does not take well to them at all. I tried repeatedly, but that guitar does not like em as much as my other guitars.

And I have them on my blanca. They sound good, especially for the money. I'm paying four quid a set which is amazing value for a decent bright string in the UK.
