Add Percussion to Your Playing Style

Sponsored Story from Elixir Strings

Adding percussion to your playing-style opens up a host of new musical opportunities. Newton Faulkner reveals his favorite sweet spots on the guitar body for creating kick, snare and hip-hop percussive effects, using a Benjamin acoustic strung with Elixir® Acoustic Phosphor Bronze Strings.


“These Phosphor Bronze strings have just the right amount of body and twang – which is vital for my sound. I give them a hard life and they still sound great.”

–Newton Faulkner

Acoustic Phosphor Bronze, Medium (.013-­‐.056)

What makes Elixir Strings a favorite among artists like Newton Faulkner?  It’s their great tone, smooth feel, no string squeak and extended tone life. And for Newton, it’s the Phosphor Bronze wonderful depth of tone and playability that enables his guitars to sound and feel their best in the studio and at shows.

Elixir Strings is still the only brand to coat the entire string – protecting not only the outer string surface, but also the gaps between the windings. As a result, Elixir Strings retain their tone longer than any other string, uncoated or coated.*
