6 Burns strings

This chapter will be a contribution from Ceex Bakker and Alfons Lahaye who helped me a lot with "Pearls
and Crazy Diamonds.

"Jim Burns was a master in marketing and he used the Burns name to full extend to sell a full range of guitar related accessories like  amplifiers, speaker cabinets, strings, guitar effect units, amplifier stands, microphones and even a portable power point.

From the Alfons Lahaye collection come these pictures of various string types.

All these strings were made by James  Howe Industries of Kent, England, now a days the leading European manufacturer of roundwound strings. But these didn’t exist in the sixties; it was all flatwounds and compared to today with rather heavy gauges."

You will learn more about the different Burns strings in the book.
