D‘Addario is a company that has its lineage in guitar strings. The family originally hailed from the small town of Salle in the Italian province of Pescara. In fact, Donato D‘Addario started making strings for lutes, guitars, harps, and violins from sheep and hog gut in 1680. So, suffice to say, they are a family that knows their strings. One could say they are the OG of strings. However it was not until the 1960s that the company began selling strings under the name we know today, D ‘Addario & Company, Inc.
But strings are not the only trick they have up their sleeves. In addition to strings,they produce a multitude of accessories for guitar and bass alike. From straps to tuners, you name it they make it. In fact, the D’Addario Accessories brand has reached enormous success and has been awarded many patents for its innovative designs. Finally, it is this tireless dedication to serving players that makes D’Addario Accessories one of the leading music brands in the world! Alright enough fluff, let’s get into the accessories, shall we?
The D’Addario PW-CT-20 Chromatic Pedal Tuner takes up less space than almost all other pedal tuners on the market today! Housed in a rugged aluminum enclosure, the tuner features fast note detection, superb accuracy, wide calibration range and true-bypass wiring with an easily accessible foot switch.
Unparalleled performance at an affordable price. The D’Addario Eclipse chromatic clip-on tuner offers fast, accurate chromatic tuning on and off the stage. The tuner features a full color vertical display, auto power-off, and pitch calibration in a discreet, compact design.
The D’Addario Auto Lock Guitar Strap is the simplest integrated strap locking system for your performance. Simply slide the strap end over the guitar strap buttons and you are locked in -it’s that easy. The grey latch is spring-loaded, so it automatically clamps down on the strap button and will not release until you want it to.
The Quick Release System takes seconds to set up: just loop one end of the quick release buckle under your strings around the headstock. Loop the other end of the buckle through the end of your strap. Just squeeze the quick-release and you’re free: no knots to struggle with and no need to drill a second strap button into your guitar.
The ultimate solution for custom wiring your pedalboard or rack gear when space is restricted. Ordinary cable kits require soldering or manual stripping of wires that can lead to connection errors and frustration.
The Power Base offers five standard spaced outlets and three transformer spaced outlets. Unlike most power strips that easily tip over, the Power Base features a low, wide footprint in a sturdy metal housing that remains anchored in place no matter how many devices are plugged in.
