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 wew America's legendary electric bass guitar 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 Richard's secrets. The best materials and the same machines designed and developed by Richard Cocco Sr. continue to produce guitar string that are 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" to 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........
