A light yet balanced custom gauge derived from Rotosound's Swing Bass 66 range that is perfect for slap bass.

This set was originally developed in conjunction with Mark King who revolutionised bass playing with pop funk chart toppers Level 42.King of funk
“I’ve been lucky enough to have been involved with Rotosound for over thirty years now, going right back to my first Jaydee and the custom gauges that the guys made up for me, 30-50-70-90, and still do to this day, only now with double-ball ends for my Status King basses.

“The fantastic tonal consistency of the strings has been the bedrock of my sound, and we all know that your sound starts with the strings, right?” - Mark KingA string for everyone
With so many musicians experimenting with unique gauges and drop tunings it is hardly surprising to know that Swing Bass Custom Box Singles, first introduced in the ’60s, enjoy more popularity now than ever before.

With such a wide range starting from 0.025? to 0.140? in increments of 0.005? there will be a gauge to suit everyone’s custom set.Great British quality
Manufactured in the UK to precise tolerances and using only the finest materials, you can rely on Rotosound strings for consistent tone and performance in every packet.

Every Swing Bass 66 string is manufactured on custom built machines designed and built in the UK by Jason How.Iconic music strings
This innovation continues Rotosound’s proud legacy of cutting-edge string design that started with our roundwound strings in the sixties.

Developed in conjunction with some of the world's top artists, Rotosound strings are synonymous with timeless tone, longevity and rock history.

Started in 1958 by James How, an engineer who made strings for his own instruments, Rotosound became known around the world for its superior quality products and famous endorsees such as Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, and Queen to name just a few. The Who’s John Entwistle started a long partnership with James and helped develop the Swing Bass roundwound strings which have become the industry standard.

Gathering the most prominent artists over the following decades from Jaco Pastorius to The Edge, Oasis to Guthrie Govan, Rotosound has been the go-to string for every music generation.
