Signature Guitar Strings for Michael Amott, Paul Allender and Mikey Demus
Rotosound teamed up with their metal guitar playing endorsees to create a new range of signature guitar strings.
Michael Amott has played in many death metal / hard rock bands – namely Arch Enemy, Spiritual Beggars, and now ex-Carcass. These signature strings, influenced by Michael’s own personal style and are designed for wide vibrato, melodic lead lines and furious sledgehammer riffs. Michael Amott said ‘they have great tone, they stay in tune, they don’t break easily, what more do you want? I rely on my MA11 Rotosound strings every night on stage and in the recording studios. Rotosound shreds’.
Paul Allender is the lead guitarist for Cradle of Filth. He worked with Rotosound to develop custom gauge strings. He wanted strings that help him maintain that sharp air of sinister lead riffs while still letting him produce provocative melodic statements and clever counter harmonies.
Mikey Demus is a relatively new Rotosound endorsee. He plays in Skindred, winners of the Best Live Act at 2011’s Golden God Awards. His strings are designed to survive energetic stage shows.
