Brian May’s Rotosound Guitar Strings

Based on the statement that Brian gave in the January 1983 issue of Guitar Player at that time he used Rotosound strings. The gauges were .008, .009, .011, .016, 0.22, and .034. These were quite common back in the day and were used by various artists stationed in the UK like Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd.
