I discovered these string while researching bass strings online. They're sold by Strings Direct in the UK for very reasonable prices, I bought a set of bass strings for 9 (I think) and 6 sets of 11-48 electric guitar strings for 20. When the bass strings turned up the inside of the packaging had a Rotosound advert/branding - so I would assume they were made by Rotosound, however the guitar strings didn't. I haven't used them for any length of time so ascertain how good they are, but they seem to get good reviews online.

They're rebranded Rotosounds, I think they're ok but they don't last very long for me. I get better value from a set of Elixirs.

I have very dry fingers, which can be a liability when, say, picking up a large glass jar of Marmite without it slipping through your fingers and ending in a nasty mess of salted yeast extract and broken glass on the kitchen floor. For me Rotosounds last for years. My son uses Elixirs; I usually had to replace my acoustic strings a couple of weeks after the band borrowed it.
