Adamas 1818E Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings

Designed from the inside out for balanced performance in tone and feel, the Adamas Phosphor Bronze wrap wire produces a rich, full sound with even tone throughout the harmonic range, while Composite Gauging provides for a set that is consistent in tension and amplitude from string to string. Significant changes have been engineered into the fifth and sixth strings. These strings utilize core and wrap wire of identical size so that neither part of the string dominates the various modes of string vibration. Thus, the strings vibrate more consistently and with greater amplitude to produce a sharper, more precise tone.

Behringer Compressor-Sustainer CS400 Effects Pedal

If tone is the name of your game, the Behringer Compressor-Sustainer CS400 Effects Pedal will add amazing impact to your tone and provide endless sustain. Here is an Effects Pedal that will rock your world, new from Behringer at AMS! What’s a Compressor? Dynamics play an important role in music. They help to convey emotion, whether it’s a sultry blues solo or the unrelenting gallop of unfettered metal. But uncontrolled dynamics can take all your best intentions and turn them into so much, well…mush. That’s where compression comes in, softening loud sounds and boosting low signal levels to keep everything more uniform. So, a compressor’s main job is to make every note the same volume. Balancing Act Ever notice how some strings on your guitar or bass sound louder than others? This is partly due to physics. Strings with lower mass just don’t put out as much volume as the heavier ones. When used properly, a compressor makes all of the strings the same volume. Compressors are also great for slap-style bass players, making thumb slaps, string pulls and muted notes all the same volume, for an extremely percussive effect. Easy to Operate You can dial in the right amount of compression using the dedicated ATTACK and SUSTAIN dials. The LEVEL control allows you to set the output to subtle, or engage a monster volume boost. TONE lets you add exactly the right level of highs. From clean, snappy country leads to rock solos that scream for eons, the CS400 is built to make your sound the center of attention. Its LED tells you when it's on, and the top-quality on/off switch maintains outstanding signal integrity in bypass mode. You can power this scene-stealer with either a 9 V battery or the PSU-SB DC power supply (not included). Value The COMPRESSOR/SUSTAINER CS400 is an affordable way to add some serious finesse to your playing. Check one out at American Musical Supply and let your playing take center stage.

There’s a separate 10-step Key select control as well as Delay/Speed control and Balance to dial in how much effect you want to mix with a dry signal. A brilliant blue LED indicates power status and battery condition. The footswitch is ultra-strong to last through years of gigging. And in bypass mode, it preserves signal integrity by taking all pedal circuitry out of your chain. The US600 pedal is designed to give you the utmost flexibility, running on Behringer PSU-SB DC power supply or a typical 9 V battery. Plug into the Behringer US600 Ultimate Pitch Shifter Harmonist Effects Pedal and take your guitar places it has never been. Now even a solitary guitarist whose axe sports a steadfast bridge can harness the power of harmony and tremolo! Astounding Sounds Tremolo bars add a handsome shimmer to your guitar sound by detuning your strings and then returning them to pitch. And the sound of two guitars playing in harmony adds a soaring, heroic touch to an ordinary lead. The US600 is built to take the place of a tremolo bar AND a second guitarist. Its Real Sound Modeling (RSM) technology produces sophisticated algorithms that deliver the delicate harmonic overtones that are critical to creating realistic harmonies and transpositions.

Big Bends Nut Sauce Guitar Lubricant

Big Bends NUT SAUCE is the Extreme Tuning Lubricant! Your guitar will remain in tune no matter how hard you bend your strings or yank your whammy bar. With the sauce, you won't have to tune between every song - they guarantee it! NUT SAUCE will stop string breakage when applied to bridge or saddles. NUT SAUCE STAYS WHERE YOU PUT IT! It won't drip or run on the fret board or head stock. Once you try the sauce, you'll never play without it!! NUT SAUCE REGULAR is the favorite of electric guitar players. It contains graphite and synthetic lubricants. It is completely safe for both you and your instrument. It contains no petroleum products or wax. Your sauce comes ready to use in the GROOVE-LUBER applicator! How It Works The concept of NUT SAUCE is simple - Stop the string drag or friction at the nut and string guides. Reduce string breakage at the bridge and saddles by reducing friction and wear from the see-saw action of hard playing, especially with a thick pick. Well, it's no secret that guitar players for years have used pencil lead, Vaseline, lip balm, and many other things to help keep their guitars in tune. With a technical background that extends to lubricants, I approached the problem with a scientific perspective and finally created NUT SAUCE. After giving the sauce away to friends for years, I decided to make it available to everyone and created BIG BENDS LLC. My criteria was simple - it had to be non-toxic, non-corrosive, created with state-of-the-art lubricants, could not affect the finish of your guitar, and had to be so thick that it would stay where you put it (that means in the nut slots, under the string guides or on the bridge or saddles). NUT SAUCE meets this criteria and more. -Jeff Massey, Creator "Nut Sauce reduces pitch drift (going out of tune) an average of 54% and string breakage an average of 85%". Used and endorsed by Pete Anderson! Twang and Blues Guitar Guru And Grammy Award-Winning Producer. "...Love the "NUT SAUCE"...Now I can play my 65 Ice Blue Metallic and 57 sunburst strat live and still do my wild tremelo antics without worring about tuning. I've been telling all my guitarist buddies about the sauce and there're convinced too...Thanks Jeff" Brad Gillis/Night Ranger "With Nut Sauce, I never have to worry...Nut Sauce stays where you put it, the application is clean and simple, and most of all IT WORKs...I can be confident when I send them out on stage...Thanks Jeff for such a great product." Chad Weaver Guitar/backline tech for Terri Clark "IT REALLY DOES WORK! Nut Sauce is ALWAYS in my toolbox now." Randy Michaels Guitar Tech for Jeff Tamelier of Tower of Power String Breakage (Why) The main cause of string breakage can be summed up in one word - "friction". Most players who break strings seem to have a couple things in common, they use "heavy picks" - whether it's a standard pick, thumb pick or finger pick. They also play hard no matter their style.

Bigsby B3 Vibrato Tailpiece for Semi-Hollow Guitars

For owners of thin hollow and semi-hollow guitars including ‘335’ style guitars, the Bigsby B3 Vibrato Tailpiece for Semi-Hollow Guitars is for you! This classic whammy system is sand-cast construction in Kalamazoo, MI for that authentic feel and look. The Bigsby B3 vibrato is easy to install and is a great way to make your favorite axe even more fun to play! The Bigsby was the first successful design of what is now called a whammy bar or tremolo arm, although vibrato is the technically correct term for the musical effect it produces. The arm of the Bigsby is spring loaded and attached to a pivoting metal bar, around which the strings of the guitar are installed. In the neutral or unused position, the pressure of the spring counterbalances the pull of the strings, resulting in constant pitch. When the arm of the Bigsby B3 is pushed down towards the top of the guitar, the bridge rocks forward causing the strings to loosen, lowering their pitch. When the arm is released, the strings return to normal pitch. The arm may also be lifted slightly to raise the pitch of the strings. The Bigsby is highly controllable within its range of motion and requires little force to operate.
