Manufactured in the UK to precise tolerances and using only the finest materials, you can rely on Jazz Bass 77 strings for consistent tone and performance in every packet.
Every Jazz Bass string is still manufactured the 'old fashioned way' by hand on machines that James How built at the end of the 1960s.
Monel is an alloy of nickel and copper and brings to Rotosound's strings the benefit of a strong tone and resistance to corrosion.
The build spec remains a close kept secret but the Monel 400 tape used in Jazz Bass 77 strings brings out their true character over the much less costly flattened stainless steel.
