New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Rotosound) Mark King, founder, lead singer and bassist with legendary band Level 42 is back with Rotosound and will be using their Swing Bass and Super Bronze strings on forthcoming 'Running in The Family @ 25' UK and European tour later this year.

With thirty million record sales across the world, eighteen albums and twenty top forty hits Level 42 are widely regarded as one of most influential UK bands. As part of the 25th anniversary of the release of their seminal album 'Running in the Family' (RITF), Universal Music are also re-releasing the RITF as a box set including an acoustic version of the album where Mark used Rotosound Super Bronze strings.

Mark will be using Rotosound Swing Bass FM66's in the 30 to 90 gauge range. Introduced in 1962, the Swing Bass strings have used by some of the highest profile, most respected bass playing icons over the last fifty years including The Who's John Entwhistle, Duff McKagan (Guns 'n' Roses) Geddy Lee (Rush) and Noel Redding (Jimi Hendrix) to name but a few.

For his acoustic guitar, Mark has chosen to play Rotosound's Super Bronze for their bright sound, increased volume and longer sustain. The strings were pioneered by the founder of Rotosound, James How and are today used by many top artists including Walter Trout and Bob Geldof.

Rotosound manufactures all Swing Bass and Super Bronze strings using only the finest materials with their own unique state of the art production processes. Want to know more?
