Comprising 80/20 brass wire covers, these strings offer the resonant advantages of this material coupled with considerable clarity and tone.
An alternative to the 92/8 bronze Jumbo King series, crystal clear resonance would describe this string's character very well.Beyond the bronze age
One of the earliest copper based materials used for acoustic strings was the 80/20 brass series from around the 1940s. It is commonly referred to as “yellow bronze”.
Comprised of 80% copper and 20% zinc, it offers a zingy bright top end with strong bass frequencies and a scooped mid-range.British quality

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.
