The result of many requests from Rotosound players for a coated string.
The windings use the 92/8 phosphor bronze of our Jumbo King strings but with a clear polymer coating that allows for a more subtle tone, longer string life, subdued finger noise and highly resistant to perspiration from the players hands.
The unwound strings are made from a special ‘platinum’ plated piano wire.Long lasting tone
Nexus strings are designed to resist moisture and build-up than can quickly cause strings to lose their attack and clarity. Bespoke pre-coated wire and platinum plated plain strings maintain their natural tone and feel allowing your guitar to feel freshly strung every time you pick it up.No compromises
Rather than coating the string after it’s wound, as many companies do, Nexus strings are wrapped using a bespoke pre-coated wire. This maintains more of the natural tone of an uncoated string without compromising on feel.British quality
Manufactured in the UK to precise tolerances and using only the finest materials, you can rely on Rotosound acoustic strings for consistent tone and performance in every packet.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.
