Rotto Sound Bronze

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Microbass, Jun 30, 2002.


  1. I've found a set of Bronze Rotto Sounds - brand new - on ebay.

    These are round wound. Will this be o on my fretted? (arent these for fretless?)
    The gauges fit my needs. Are they durable? I need about a month or two at least out of them!! Has anyone got an opinion on the tone they give?

    I have a P-bass copy that has a quite trembley tone..

    Thanks. :)

    Guys, I don't think that Bronze strings will work on an electric bass.

    Not true in the case of the Rotosound RS44 Bronze strings. They have a steel core which will work with magnetic pickups unlike the Thomastik-Infeld AB series bronze which have a non-magnetic nylon core.
     
  7. Hey Dude :p

    Thanks for that, I'd very much appreciate it !!

    However, I will glady pay POstage & Packaging, as I live in the UK.

    I'll email you just now..

    Up after 10 years...

    Do the RS-44 sound well on electric bass ? As said above the core is made of steel... right ?

    There is enough material around the core to reduce the potential magnetic field etc... Best on acoustic instruments...

    If your electric had a Piezo then you can use anything you want...

    However GHS Black Nylon only have a steel core, the wrap is pure nylon, and they sound huge...
