The new Rotosound air-tight packaging is made from foil. It provides a moisture barrier ensuring strings will not tarnish or fade while in the packs, keeping them factory fresh until ready for use. The packaging has also been reduced by 90 percent making the new packets incredibly eco-friendly. All Rotosound strings now come with color-coded ball ends, and because they are British through and through, they are Red White and Blue. The strings, still made at the Rotosound factory in the UK, retain their pure British tone.

The Headload is a guitar amplifier attenuator that allows the artist to reduce the volume levels on stage while driving the amp hard for the desired tone. The 100 percent discrete fan-cooled design begins with a series of high power cement-encrusted epoxy-coated copper coil resistors that are used in conjunction with a six-position Grayhill rotary switch to dissipate the power generated by the amplifier. A variable range control allows incremental power reduction at low levels if needed. Power going to the speakers may also be turned off for quiet recording or to eliminate the speaker cabinet on stage.
