Rotosound RS665LC Swing Bass 66 Roundwound 40-125 Medium Light. 5 String Bass 40-60-75-95-125

The most popular Roundwound bass string ever. Rotosound was the first string company
to produce this kind of string. Introduced in 1962 it changed the sound of the instrument
instantly. The favourite string of many players including Billy Sheehan, John Paul Jones
and Geddy Lee. Available in all popular gauges and scale lengths. The steel used to
produce these strings is unique, combined with a highly secretive manufacturing process.


Rotosound strings struck gold 1966 when John Entwistle of The Who came to the Rotosound factory in search of a new set of bass strings. He spent the afternoon trying out countless different gauges of strings before settling on a set that would become known as the Rotosound Swing Bass 66.

Rotosound strings are endorsed by a big, varied mix of bands and artists (past and present)... Kasabian, The Zutons, Velvet Revolver, Steve Harris, Billy Sheehan, Oasis, John Paul Jones, JJ Burnel, Sir Paul McCartney, Stanley Clarke, Pulp, Spiritual Beggars, Queen, Geddy Lee, Jaco Pastorius, The Cure, The Levellers, PJ Harvey, Echo and the Bunnymen, James Lomenzo, Phil Lynott - To name a few!
