Stringjoy has joined forces with Lamb of God riff machine Mark Morton for its first set of signature electric guitar strings. The firm says the set delivers “unparalleled performance and tone from the studio to the stage”.

In practice, the nickel wound '9.5-50 gauge' set has been carefully crafted to compliment Morton’s aggressive playing style. It's an approach that has propelled Lamb of God to the upper echelons of modern metal, reflected by their five Grammy nominations and five Metal Hammer award wins.

A freelance writer with a penchant for music that gets weird, Phil is a regular contributor to Prog, Guitar World, and Total Guitar magazines and is especially keen on shining a light on unknown artists. Outside of the journalism realm, you can find him writing angular riffs in progressive metal band, Prognosis, in which he slings an 8-string Strandberg Boden Original, churning that low string through a variety of tunings. He's also a published author and is currently penning his debut novel which chucks fantasy, mythology and humanity into a great big melting pot.
