Richard Bona uses R.Cocco Strings
Richard Bona teams up with Richard Cocco Strings.
At the Frankfurter Musik Messe R.Cocco strings launched their first signature set of strings. R.Cocco is proud to announce that Richard Bona has chosen to use their strings and in return he is proud to be a part of the Cocco family.
More on R.Cocco Strings:
History: Richard Cocco Senior was born in Italy and came to the United states of America in 1951. Richard entered the string manufacturing business at the time when the first electric bass guitars were introduced. Fascinated by this new instrument, he developed the Cocco method of hand winding to make new strings which proved to be so fine that some of his first customers were America’s legendary electric bass inventors. After 10 years of collaboration, Mr. Cocco recognized in Mr. Alfonso Annecchiarico the only one capable to continue his legacy. Today Alfonso Annecchiarico is the sole owner of R.Cocco Strings and the only depositary of Richards secrets. The best materials and the same machines designed and developed by Richard Cocco Sr. continue to produce guitar strings that are truly exceptional.
As told by Richard Cocco Sr.: In the ambitious quest to create the ultimate quality, I made the most technological discovery in the string industry, the HUMAN HAND. The enhance this discovery, I designed and built unique machines that can fully utilize the natural talent and sensitivity of the human hand. Richard Cocco Strings are the result and expression of this combination, the furthest accomplishment of quality and performance.
Richard Cocco Strings are universally acclaimed by musicians for the perfection and purity of sound, which they produce. The dedication to quality is heard in each set of hand woven and inspected strings. Today, these strings are sold in the USA, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia and sales are expanding every year.
In keeping with this very rich tradition, we intend to stay ahead of the rest…to improve the best even though we make the best, from my hands to yours.
Where some would simply stick it in a box and be done, our crack team of designers decided a pedal line this good deserved special packaging that reflected their commitment to tone and made sure each heavy duty transport box (with a cool magnetic lid) included a collectable instruction card with all warranty (5-YEAR) and website info.
Overdone? You bet!
Once our people get an idea in their head they just won't let go and the ModTone line of effect pedals is the culmination of their commitment to bringing high quality tone to the masses. "Boutique for everyone!" they say. And we agree.
Long Live Tone!
