Listen up tone junkies...there's a new string in town! We are now stocking the brand new Santa Cruz Parabolic Tension strings.
When it comes to strings, it’s all about tension. While gauge is simply the measurement of the string’s diameter, the tension of a string determines its relative volume to the other strings (EQ). Santa Cruz Strings are engineered to do what others cannot, to put the exact tension on each individual string to create the appropriate download pressure. Santa Cruz Strings require precise core to wrap ratios and precision fit and finish for unprecedented tolerances of one half of one thousandths of an inch. This accurately determines the tension/volume of each string to the exact EQ that your guitar was designed for.
In short, Santa Cruz strings come in different tensions, not gauges. We recommend the Mid-tensions for a dreadnought or jumbo and the Low-tensions for a small body. Come on in and give them a go! $25 each.
Just in. A pre-owned Martin D-28 '1931 Authentic' in as new condition. Madagascan Rosewood back and sides, Adirondack top & bracing, 12-fret neck join, slotted headstock and hide glue construction. Simply superb in ever way. $7,999.
Our customer of the day is our good friend and Aussie music legend, Joe Camilleri. Joe wasn't buying anything today. Instead he was giving us a few copies of his brand new Black Sorrows album because our very own Benny Peters played guitar on it. Benny called in sick today though so unfortunately he mightn't get a copy after all. Thanks so much Joe...always great to see you!
