The addition will make 15 different sets available.
Farmingdale, NY (April 17, 2015) -- D'Addario & Company, Inc, a global leader in the design, manufacturing and distribution of musical instrument accessories, is thrilled to announce the addition of 9 new sets to their strongest guitar string line ever, the NYXL. On May 15th, 2015, this addition will make 15 NYXL sets available, now including: 12-60, 12-54, 13-56, 12-52, 11-56, 11-52, 9.5-44 and Balanced Tension 9-40 and 10-46.
NYXL guitar strings bend further, sing louder, and stay in tune better than any string you've played before. Envisioned, perfected, and manufactured by D'Addario in New York, this newly engineered, break-resistant, high-carbon steel core and plain steel alloy delivers a whole new level of freedom, confidence, and power. NYXL's provide more strength, and up to 131% greater tuning stability when compared to traditional nickel wound sets. The reformulated nickel-plated steel alloy have greater magnetic properties, resulting in higher output and enhanced mid-range frequency response, modernizing the overall tone without losing that well-loved nickel-plated steel feel.
The NYXL took home the 2014 Summer NAMM "Best In Show" award, the 2015 MIPA award for "Best Innovative Product" and has received raves from the guitar playing community at large: Richard Fortus of Guns N' Roses says NYXL is "the best electric string I have come across. They not only hold up to my on-stage brutality, but they're louder and more articulate" and The Cure's Reeves Gabrels sums it up simply, "overtones, sustain, cool tone. I'm in love."

Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters are designed to offer a fat midrange and a smooth top end.
Billy Corgan was looking for something for heavier Smashing Pumpkins songs, so Joe Naylor designed the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One pickup. Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters have a fat midrange and a smooth top end. This pickup combines the drive and sustain of a humbucker with the percussive attack and string clarity of a P90. Get beefy P90 tone plus amp-pummeling output with the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One.
Patented Railhammer Pickups take passive guitar pickups to a new level with rails under the wound strings lead to tighter lows, and poles under the plain strings offer fatter heights. With increased clarity, the passive pickup’s tone is never sterile.

Mojotone will manufacture and market over 60 of their speaker cabinets and amp kits as “Licensed by Fender.”
This partnership marks Fender's recognition of Mojotone’s dedication to its craft, quality of products, and dependability of knowledge. Beginning November 29th and ranging from $327 - $1,016.
Amplifiers were among the first products to wear the official Fender seal. A qualified electronics technician by trade, Leo Fender developed his iconic amplifiers during the mid-1940s putting innovation at the forefront. To this day, Leo’s influence and innovative spirit can still be heard in today’s amps, as that same iconic, clean Fender tone continues to color new music around the world. As a result, the process for completing the exclusive licensing deal required Fender to carefully audit Mojotone’s amplifier kits, wiring diagrams, electronics, hardware, construction methods, and more to ensure this innovation carried on through the partnership. Mojotone’s many years of intense research, quality production, and favorable reputation solidified the deal.
Mojotone has always been determined to provide its customer base with the most sought-after parts with their insider industry-knowledge. They have spent the last 25 years helping musicians recreate what they deem to be the most famous and easily-recognized tones and aesthetics in the music industry. When purchasing Mojotone products, like Fender products, customers can be assured of unmatched quality and craftsmanship.
