Press Release – August 2009

Rotosound launch British Steel strings

Rotosound’s world class reputation for making the best guitar strings goes before them. They have drawn on this history, experience and knowledge in designing the next generation of strings. Rotosound now announce the launch of British Steels, based on the Original classic Rotosound Stainless Steel Electric Guitar Strings from the 1960’s, and now manufactured using improved processes and even better materials.

Their original stainless steel strings already have a pedigree second to none and were used by Jimi Hendrix, Pete Townsend, Brian May and many others. Rotosounds stainless steel strings offered a clear, bright punchy sound, positive grip, plenty of twang and went on to be played on some of the greatest songs of all time.

The new Rotosound British Steels have been designed to give a brilliant tone, sustain and great volume. Using the very best stainless steel with the highest possible iron content (for better magnetic properties), the new strings are now manufactured under even tighter quality control and stricter tolerances to ensure consistency, clarity and durability.

British Steels are available in the following gauges* :

BS09   09 / 11 / 16 / 24w / 32w / 42w

BS10   10 / 13 / 17 / 26w / 36w / 46w

BS11   11 / 14 / 18 / 28w / 38w / 48w
