BLACK SABBATH - Tony Iommi Donates Guitar Strings For Charity

Riff Notes

Posted on Wednesday, May 29, 2013 at 21:56:12 EST

BLACK SABBATH guitar legend Tony Iommi has donated his used guitar strings to Wear Your Music, an organisation that turns used guitar strings into jewelry. All profits made from the sale of Tony's guitar strings will go to the Nordoff-Robbins charity.

Tony Iommi is frequently referred to as the inventor of heavy metal with his trademark riffs. Having sliced off the ends of three fingers in a factory accident when first starting out Tony switched to very light gauge strings. These make his bracelets especially unique.

Rock Recycled Bracelets are hand-wrapped with sterling silver to create a one-of-a-kind bangle style bracelet. Each bracelet uses a different number and color of strings, depending on what is available at the time of purchase. They do not have the artists initials on them and are not soldered. For this, and the option to add a clasp, see the Classic Style.
