Saucerful of Secrets live. Gary Kemp playing guitar Nick Mason Pink Floyd drummer

A Rotosound reunion on stage with Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason

It was very special hearing Rotosound strings on stage again with the Pink Floyd drummer as they performed Barrett-era songs at the legendary Fairfield Halls.

How Lee Harris came to Rotosound is a testament to our rich history.

Lee is a Syd Barrett aficionado and has put together a rig that captures the early Pink Floyd perfectly.

Saucerful of Secrets

On Wednesday we watched Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets perform in Croydon’s Fairfield Halls, a venue that has seen British music royalty such as David Bowie, the Beatles, The Who, and Queen grace its stage. The show was a feast for psychedelic music fans with a dazzling light display, all musicians creating a sea of ambience from their instruments, and Gary Kemp and Lee Harris‘ guitars sounded magnificent.

Gary Kemp’s guitar strings

Rotosound has been the string of choice for decades for Gary Kemp, who used them back when he played with Spandau Ballet.

Gary uses our British Steels BS10 stainless steel electric guitar strings and Jumbo King JK11 acoustic guitar strings.

Lee Harris’ guitar strings

How Lee Harris came to Rotosound is a testament to our rich history. Lee phoned us in 2021 to discuss strings after seeing the famous photograph of Pink Floyd holding Rotosound packs while recording at Abbey Road Studios in 1967. Lee is a Syd Barrett aficionado and has put together a rig that captures the early Pink Floyd perfectly.

Lee plays our Roto Yellows R10 strings.
