Hello people! So, I've been doing a few threads about strings, lately. I googled for this, but I didn't find anything... I just found people that use ''old'' to say ''dead''. I prefer dead strings as well, but I think that my doubt would be interesting to share and hear what old time users have to say about it (and hopefully we can start an interesting and informative thread). It seems like a lot of people loved Roto66 in the 60s and 70s, but then started noticing a downfall in quality, consistency and an overall change in the strings' tone. I've read of someone saying that it might have been because they used scrap war material (post-WWII) to build the strings, because after the end of the war they had a lot of scrap metal left from it... it'd be pretty absurd, but SO absurd that it might have been real. But it's nothing more than a rumor, because the commenter didn't post a source of that information. What I'm asking to old time users of Roto66, then, is: what strings do you think that better recreate that sound that you loved so much of the 60s and 70s Rotos? I also just noticed that Rotosound currently makes a ''vintage swing 66'' strings set, that is probably marketed as a return to that sound, but of course everyone would be skeptical... if you changed a successful formula with the main series, why making a separate ''vintage'' one for that, given that you're able to do it again, indeed? Last but not least: Roto66 are still well-known for their beefy low-end and mostly for MID GROWL and brightness. Did the tone actually change over the years or is it just mostly a matter of a lacking consistency about the quality/freshness of the strings?
