String Club-How does it work?

Step 1: Fill out the form
Customers interested in signing up for our String Club will need to fill out the "Form for Submission." This creates a profile of your instrument, which strings you are interested in, as well as the frequency in which they will be replaced. I will then contact you to work out a time and date for you to bring in your guitar for inspection.

Step 2: Bring in the guitar
 After you've dropped off your guitar for its thorough inspection, I will follow up with my findings and or recommendations should the guitar need any repairs or if the guitar is ineligible for our String Club. Guitars that are ineligible for our String Club are ones that cannot be adjusted into tune and or a comfortable playing condition. 

Step 3: Pay for your service
Payment for the String Club is in full. Depending which strings and which frequency of service you choose, including sales tax, will determine your price.

Step 4: Play your guitar!
Go and play. I will contact you based on your chosen frequency to workout times and dates for you to drop off and pick up your guitar. If you forget when the last time you used your service, or how many you have left, you're welcome call me at 530.661.2349 or login to our website and see how many service you have used so far.

Restringing Process

Step 1: Recycle Strings
My process begins by removing your guitars old strings and recycling them. I've partnered with D'Addario and Terracycle who will re-smelt the old metal to make new clean steel for future guitar strings.

Step 2: Hydrate
Next I'll add lemon oil to both hydrate and clean your guitars fingerboard. While the wood is hydrating, I polish the frets with #0000 steel wool.

Step 3: Installation
For optimal tone and minimal wear, I bend the ball end of the strings to meet gently and firmly against your guitars bridge plate. Improper string installation can cause excessive damage, shortening the life of your guitars original bridge plate. The vast majority of acoustic guitars do not have locking tuners. For this reason I use a locking tie method for every steel string guitar restring I perform.

Step 4: Lubrication
For smooth tuning action, I add graphite to the nut pocket of all 6 strings. Players who are string benders always appreciate this little touch.

Step 5: Wearing in the strings
Lastly I'll stretch your new strings to give a "worn-in" like feel to the player.

Form for Submission


String Options

Standard

Phosphor Bronze
Warm, well balanced even acoustic tone. Industry standard for modern guitar players. 

80/20 Bronze
Deep, bright, and projecting tone. Great for vintage guitar players.

Nickel Wound (Electric)
Nickel Wound electric guitar strings, long recognized as the industry standard, are ideal for a wide range of musical styles.

Step-Up

Nickel Bronze
Slightly brighter than Phosphor bronze but warmer than 80/20, Nickel Bronze offers players a balance between the two industry standard materials with a new tonal range to explore with their acoustics.

Aluminum Bronze
Superior projection and clarity, while offering a natural corrosion resistance without the need for coating the strings.

D'Addario NYXL (Electric)
The high carbon steel used in NYXL strings offers higher break strength, enhanced tuning stability, and accentuated mid-range frequency response.

Ernie Ball Cobalt (Electric)
Ernie Ball Cobalt Slinky Electric Guitar Strings provide an extended dynamic range, incredible harmonic response, increased low end, and crisp, clear highs. Cobalt provides a stronger magnetic relationship between pickups and strings than any other alloy previously available.

Premium

D'addario XT Coated (Acoustic/Electric)
D'Addario XT Acoustic Phosphor Bronze and XT Electric Nickel Plated Steel strings, combine the most popular musically resonant alloys with an advanced corrosion resistant treatment on every string in the set, preserving the natural tone and feel of uncoated strings.

Ernie Ball Paradigm (Acoustic/Electric)
Ernie Ball Slinky Paradigm guitar strings provide unprecedented strength and longer string life. Ernie Ball's industry leading ultra-high strength steel is included in both the wound and plain strings to provide superior tensile and fatigue strength for strings that lock into tune fast and hold up under the most stressful playing styles and conditions. The coupling of Ernie Ball's Everlast nanotreatment with breakthrough plasma enhanced wrap wire provides added corrosion resistance and reduced accumulation of tone-robbing buildup and debris. Experience the first set of longer lasting strings that are worth playing with all benefits and no compromises.
