StringDog Announces Sonic Hybrid Strings

The hybrid gauge offers a nickel wrap over a hexagonal core.

Boston, MA (November 20, 2013) -- The String Dog Company announces its release of Sonic Hybrid 946 electric guitar strings. Its first Hybrid gauge product, Sonics offer a quality nickel wrap over a hexagonal core for strength and durability. The set is balanced providing articulate, bendable highs, with full round lows. As with all of StringDog’s electric strings, Sonics will break in quickly - and stand up to rigorous performing.

StringDog’s President Nathan Ferrarelli stated “Sonics are a response to receiving more and more requests for Hybrid and custom gauge sets. A 10-52 gauge is something we are considering adding to the Sonic product line, as well as the viability of offering custom sets.” Commenting on what is next for the company, he said “There are 2 acoustic lines we would like to release in 2014, and are now researching the market and developing specifications to test different tonal qualities, variations, and materials. Our goal is to offer players quality acoustic strings to go along with our premium electric products.”

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
