Excellent value bass strings that deliver the classic Rotosound roundwound tone!
We took our popular Swing Bass 66 Nickel strings and simplified the design specifications without sacrificing on quality or tone to produce our most affordable bass strings yet.The bare essentials
Red silk ends are synonymous with our Swing Bass 66 strings and offer a neat covering at the string’s tail. However, we don’t fit silks to our Roto Bass strings – why, you may ask?
This enables the savings made to be passed on to the customer. The sound, balance, feel and tone remains uppermost in our commitment to offer the musician the very best in value for money.Great British quality
Manufactured in the UK to precise tolerances and using only the finest materials, you can rely on Roto Bass strings for consistent tone and performance in every packet.
These strings are manufactured on bespoke computer controlled string winding machines that have been developed by Rotosound engineers to deliver the level of consistency demanded by the best players in the world.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.
