British Steels Regular 11-48
The quintessential sound of British guitar – Rotosound’s early electric guitar strings
which were the choice of music legends.
This range originates from the sixties and offers a distinctly bright tone with increased
presence over its nickel-plated counterparts. As British Steels are nickel free,
they’re aptly suited to players with a nickel allergy.
The British sound
In the early days of rock and pop, stainless steel strings were the sets of choice with top
players. Rotosound supplied stainless steel strings to the best players of the sixties and s
eventies such as Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Syd Barrett, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne and Brian May.
With such high iron content in their ferritic stainless steel covers, British Steels offer a
clear and bright sound that still packs a punch. Serious twang is at hand with cleaner amp
settings but turn up the overdrive to unleash unmistakable upper harmonics and presence unique
to steel strings."
