60 Years of Rotosound! The BBC Profiles an Icon

We are 60!

 

From our humble beginnings making strings one by one on James How’s original winding machine, through decades of continuous innovation we have been faithfully serving the music industry for 60 years!

 

The BBC recently visited us to sample the groundbreaking music we are proud to be a part of, and see what goes into crafting the original British Sound:

 

 

Featured prominently in this report are our famous Tru Bass 88 strings; the original black nylon string designed by James How back in 1962.

 

Are your dealers putting Rotosound Strings into the hands of the next generation of music pioneers?

 

Do you have your 60th-anniversary campaigns ready to go?

 

We would love to hear what you are doing to celebrate this landmark year; please write to info@frederickexport.com.

The 2018 NAMM was a spectacular success for Cort in many ways. Cort introduced a bevy of new exciting guitars ranging from the all-new X-Series to the multi-scale fanned-fret KX500FF to name just a few. The Cort booth generated more traffic than ever before, aided by demo performances from world-class artists Jeff Berlin, Frank Gambale, Yvette Young and Hedras Ramos. The MI industry media stalwarts such as Bass Musician Magazine and Dabelly also visited the booth to conduct video interviews regarding the new products.

The new Cort 200ATV(Aged to Vintage) Series

 

Some guitar players are strictly focused on the sound of their instruments. They have little interest in fancy visual appointments that have no effect on the tonal quality they seek. With these discriminating tone hounds in mind, Cort has developed the new 200ATV Series of acoustic guitars. Featuring Torrefied solid Sitka Spruce top and bracing, Ebony fretboard, genuine bone nut and saddle and Ebony bridge pins, and Pau Ferro back&sides, every aspect of the 200ATV is about getting the best possible resonance and sound. With the focus on sound, some deluxe appointments have been omitted but doing so also makes the 200ATV acoustic guitars a stunning value for musicians who prioritize sound quality above all else. Learn More Now
