JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE
‘When musicians were looking for a specific sound or concept, they would come visit me at the factory. Jimi Hendrix was not pleased with the sounds he would get when he bit his strings, so I developed a gauge which he thought ‘tasted’ right.
The .006 and .007 first strings that he used to bite gave him the sound he was looking for.’
James How, Founder and Chairman of Rotosound, speaking in 1992
