Rotosound Launch Signature Electric Guitar Strings

Britain’s premier guitar string manufacturer, Rotosound have developed, together with a selection of their metal guitarist endorsees, a new range of signature strings.  They can now announce the launch of signature string sets for guitarists Michael Amott (Arch Enemy / Carcass guitarist) , Paul Allender (Cradle of Filth) and Mikey Demus (Skindred).

Michael Amott is known for his involvement with a number of death metal / hard rock bands – namely Arch Enemy, Spiritual Beggars, and now ex-Carcass. These signature strings, influenced by Michael’s own personal style and are excellent for achieving wide vibrato, memorable melodic lead lines and furious sledgehammer riffs. Michael Amott said ‘they have great tone, they stay in tune, they don’t break easily, what more do you want? I rely on my MA11 Rotosound strings every night on stage and in the recording studios. Rotosound shreds’.

Long standing endorsee, Paul Allender, lead guitarist with extreme metal band Cradle of Filth has worked with Rotosound to develop his own custom gauge strings. He wanted strings that help him maintain that sharp air of sinister lead riffs whilst still allowing him to produce provocative melodic statements and clever counter harmonies.

Mikey Demus, one of Rotosound’s newer endorsees, plays guitar with Skindred, winners of the Best Live Act at 2011’s Golden God Awards. Known for his gut wrenchingly heavy guitar playing, full of raw metal power and soulful reggae, he needed strings able to work through these musical variables and survive their savage, energetic stage shows.

Michael, Paul and Mikey join an elite group of Rotosound endorsees, including Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris and the legendary Billy Sheehan, in having their own set of signature strings produced. Designed for their superb brilliance and strength these bespoke strings are a must for the discerning metal shredder. Like all Rotosound’s strings these have been produced using a highly secretive, quality manufacturing process.
