Electric Guitar Strings


Six decades of development and road testing from the world’s leading musicians has lead to our range of electric guitar strings. From smooth Pure Nickels to cutting British Steels, we make a guitar string for everyone.

Bass Guitar Strings

Where Rotosound made its name! Since the sixties we’ve been creating innovative designs that provide players with an unrivalled tone and quality of bass guitar string.

Acoustic Guitar Strings

With a wide range of materials and gauges, we have the perfect string for every acoustic guitar, from our sonically-rich Jumbo King sets to our innovative contact-core Super Bronze range.

Traditional Strings

More than sixty years of string making expertise goes into our traditional instrument strings. From banjos to bouzoukis, violins to double basses, our range of strings cater for the student and the professional alike.


Since opening up shop on London’s Denmark Street in the sixties, Rotosound has been producing quality accessories for musicians.
