La Bella Laud Strings

The Laud is a large flat-backed pear-shaped instrument with origins tracing back to the 12th century when the Arabic influence left its musical mark on the Iberian Peninsula. It belongs to the Spanish cittern family of instruments, with six double courses in unison (twelve strings in pairs), similar to the bandurria, but with a longer neck.

Traditionally it is used by folk string musical groups, such as the Filipino rondalla string ensemble, together with the guitar and the bandurria. Like the bandurria, it is tuned in fourths, but its range is one octave lower.

La Bella ML450 Laud string set includes: .012P .012P, .017P .017P, .021W .021W, .027W .027W, .033W .033W, .042W .042W.

Tuning: G#2 G#2, C#3 C#3, F#3 F#3, B3 B3, E4 E4, A4 A4
