D’Addario is proud to announce the inaugural celebration of #WorldStringChangeDay on Monday, June 6, 2022.
As a leader in guitar string innovation and quality, D’Addario is inviting musicians around the globe to celebrate the ritual and reward of caring for their instrument with a fresh set of strings.
“There’s nothing better than the feel and tone of fresh strings,” says acclaimed Brazilian Guitarist and Technician Lari Basilio. “It makes the playability smoother, the tone more vibrant, and inspires you again!”
Players on social media will be encouraged to show off how their instrument looks, plays, and sounds with fresh strings and dive into their own preferences and string-changing techniques.
Throughout the week leading up to #WorldStringChangeDay, Guitarists, Bassists, Ukulele, and Mandolin players across D’Addario’s worldwide artist roster, like Herman Li, Evan Taucher, Lari Basilio, JB Brubaker, Casper Esman, Mark Tremonti, and more will be sharing content around the importance of changing strings and maintaining your instrument.
“D’Addario strings have always been my go-to,” says Grammy-Nominated guitarist Michael Kiwanuka. “There’s just something about them that makes my guitar sound and feel the way it should. They’re the first step to achieving a great tone. With a fresh set of strings, I’m always inspired to pick up my guitar and play.”
As part of the new holiday, D’Addario will be hosting a giveaway via social media where players can post a story of them changing their strings for a chance to win a set of strings of their choice.
Musicians are encouraged to post on their social media pages using #WorldStringChangeDay to be a part of the conversation and have a chance to have their posts shared by D’Addario & Co.
