Hendrix Rotosound lrRotosound launch their British Steel guitar strings and provide a, rather splendid, picture of Hendrix and chums too.  Click on it for the big image.  No doubt it’s cool.

The British Steel strings are based on Rotosound’s original, Stainless Steel Electric Guitar Strings from the 60’s but are manufactured with modern, improved processes and better materials.  The new British Steels are designed to give brilliant tone, sustain and volume.  Rotosound use stainless steel with the highest possible iron content to provide better magnetic properties.

rotosound The originals were used by Hendrix (hence the snazzy image), Townsend, May and countless others and were played on some of the greatest songs of the time. It’s fair to say come with a pretty impressive pedigree

British Steels are available in the following gauges:

BS09 – 09 / 11 / 16 / 24 / 32 / 42
BS10 – 10 / 13 / 17 / 26 / 36 / 46
BS11 – 11 / 14 / 18 / 28 / 38 / 48

Pop on over to Rotosound for more.  I quite fancy trying a set of 10’s myself.
