As music evolves so do Rotosound strings. The new 8-string set has been added to the range as a direct result of the ever-changing world of music. Today more and more musicians are moving to 8-string guitars as new styles appear and they find 6 or 7 strings are simply not enough to express themselves musically.
The new 8-string set (R10-8) comes as part of the much loved ‘Rotos Yellow’ series and delivers a smooth powerful tone that lasts and lasts. The gauges in the new set are 10, 13,17,30w, 42w, 54w, 64w and 74w (where w denotes a wound string). The extra strings allow you to set free crashing lows and help you achieve new depths of heavy chords. The additional 64w and 74w strings offer deep rich tones and with a bottom B and F? you will now be able to make the ground rumble!
These nickel on steel strings are made to the same exacting standards as all Rotosound strings using materials and secret techniques unique to them. Their British tone, long life and unbeatable consistency make these a must for the discerning 8-string guitar player. Go on – explore the hidden depths, the darker side of your musical personality. Not for the faint-hearted!
