Jimi Hendrix Guitar Strings

Like the unique sound of Jimi Hendrix, Black Diamond’s precision wound, carefully tensioned strings set them apart from all the rest. The secret is in the core which is drawn carefully into the high carbon hexagonal shaped wire then wound with nickel-plated steel for electric and phosphor bronze and silver-plated for acoustic. These strings lend themselves to the aggressive playing style and inventive rhythm work by the revolutionary guitarist.

A New Acoustic Playing Experience

The ToneWoodAmp allows musicians to play the acoustic guitar with different effects, UNPLUGGED – with the effects emanating organically from the guitar’s sound hole and the body itself. The ToneWoodAmp essentially transforms the acoustic guitar into its own amplifier via an ingenious design. Hearing effects coming from an acoustic guitar’s sound hole is a mind-blowing experience; the sound is uncannily warm and organic. The ToneWoodAmp is also a D.I. and IOS interface. Plug the ToneWoodAmp into an external amp, and the effects are equally impressive (- Gear Review: The Truly Acoustic)
