September is coming and though many of you are not students anymore it's never too late to learn how to play the guitar!
So to celebrate the beginning of a new academic year we decided to give away 10 Guitar Accessory Packs with awesome prizes provided by our sponsors.
Here are the items what will be included in the packs:
ELIXIR Electric Nickel Plated Steel with OPTIWEB Coating
The key innovation behind the OPTIWEB™ Coating is a proprietary process that produces a lightweight coating, which not only protects the string from the elements for longer tone life, but also allows the string to vibrate with less damping – for a crisp tone with a firm, natural grip, putting you in control of bends, vibrato and sustain.
Uncoated strings are popular for their crisp tone, natural feel and playable grip, which come at the expense of tone life. Dirt, sweat, oils and air can quickly drain the life from a guitar string, making more frequent changes necessary, which can be both inconvenient and costly.
Ok, that all sounds good in theory. But one of the main pain points is the sound. Guys from ELIXIR compared OPTIWEB Coated strings to uncoated strings during play-testing and published the results on their website. You can compare the sound of coated and uncoated strings on the ELIXIR website.
Korg PC1 Pitchclip Clip-on Chromatic Tuner
Boastingfastpitch detection and processing, accuracy with ±1 cent, and a detection range from A0 to C8, the Korgpitchclip outperforms many of the clip-on tuners on the market today. By locating the battery compartment in the clip itself, the display unit has become discreet, lightweight, and articulate. Thepitchclip's high-contrast LED display can be inverted, assuring clear visibility when mounted in front of or behind the headstock on any instrument - classical guitar, electric bass, ukulele, etc.
Minotaur Guitar Straps
