Fluid Audio Launches the Strum Buddy

Amplify your electric guitar to the perfect level for practicing on your couch, in a classroom, or hotel room.

San Diego, CA (July 18, 2017) -- Building upon the acclaimed Fader Series studio monitors, Fluid Audio now announces the Strum Buddy electric guitar monitor/amplifier.

Featuring 6 watts of power and a 40mm speaker driver, the Strum Buddy amplifies your electric guitar to the perfect level for practicing on your couch, in a classroom, hotel room or anywhere. With it’s rechargeable battery, there is no need to be tethered to an AC powered amplifier – it is effectively “cordless” with 3.5 hours of play time. Using internal DSP processing, it is EQ’d to sound just like your real amp. It also has 4 effect settings that can be used independently or together – Clean, Crunch/Distortion, Chorus and Reverb. The really innovative aspect of the Strum Buddy, enough for patent protection, is that it is encased in a rubber housing with integrated suction cup. This allows you to safely stick it to any guitar body and take it wherever you want to play.

“Being a guitar player myself, I’ve always found it kind of relaxing, sitting in front of the TV with my guitar in hand. It’s a great way to unwind and get some practice time in. But it’s a little inconvenient dragging your amplifier over to the TV, much less everywhere you want to play”, says Kevin Zuccaro, the ears behind the Fluid Audio brand and its owner. “The Strum Buddy allows you the freedom to practice playing your electric guitar anywhere you want.”

Strum Buddy Highlights:

  • Compact, portable guitar monitor/amplifier with effects
  • 6W of power
  • 40mm speaker driver
  • DSP tuned to sound like your guitar amplifier
  • Integrated suction cup for guitar body mounting
  • 4 effects to choose from: Clean, Crunch, Chorus and Reverb
  • LED function indicator
  • Guitar and charging cable included

The Strum Buddy will be available July ’17 with the following street price: $79.99 USD/€79.99

Fluid Audio will be demonstrating the Strum Buddy in Booth 1536 at the 2017 Summer NAMM Show, July 13-15 in Nashville.
