BRITISH STEELS | ROTOSOUND

WORLD FAMOUS MUSIC STRINGS

BRITISH STEELS

At one time popular with players like Jimi Hendrix,Jeff Beck,Angus Young and Brian May.

This range of electrics originates from the 60`s period offering a very bright sounding string with increased presence over nickel.

The wraps are nickel free which is aptly suited to players with a nickel allergy.

Currently available in three of the most popular gauges.

Guthrie knows a thing or two….

The humble guitar string seldom evokes the same kind of excitement or obsession as instruments, amps or pedals. Nonetheless, your strings are a vital component of the sounds you make – your entire rig would be distressingly quiet without them! – so it really does make a lot of sense to pick the right ones.

I do some fairly barbaric things to my strings on a daily basis, so I’ve experimented with many different brands over the years, in a quest for maximum consistency, tuning stability, durability and all-round tonal splendour. After much research, the conclusion I reached was simply this: Rotosounds rock ;-)

Please note: w denotes wound string

All Rotosound music strings are manufactured in England.
