Used by Alex Hutchings - watch the vid...   25-Feb-13

Rotosound tells us that their new 8-string set has been added to the range as a direct result of the ever-changing world of music. They say that 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. Alex Hutchings is now using the new Rotosound 8-string set and you can see him playing these in the video.

Rotosound had this to say...

"The new 8-string set (R10-8) comes as part of the 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 sharp 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!"
