Throbak Strings Announces Signature Kid Andersen Set

Designed for players with an aggressive attack.

Grand Rapids, MI (September 23, 2015) -- Introducing Kid Andersen Signature Custom Medium electric guitar strings from ThroBak. These strings are made with a hex core and are Nickel wound to Kid Andersen’s own specs. They provide a more powerful signal to the pickup than a pure Nickel wound string. Combined with a hex core Kid Andersen Signature strings have a more strident and snappy response. A great choice for players with an aggressive attack. Made in U.S.A. using only the finest U.S.A. wire. Custom Medium gauge 11-49 (.011, . 014, .018, .028, .038, .049).

Guitar wizard and 2015 BMA Guitarist of the Year nominee, Kid Andersen, currently on tour with Rick Estrin & the Nightcats says, “The ThroBak strings are exactly what I am looking for in a set of guitar strings. Their sound and feel can’t be beat in my book. I don't just use them because my picture is on the package, they are my favorite of any strings I've ever played!”

ThroBak strings are custom made by a small two man machine shop with a 45+ year history of making precision string winding machines and custom guitar strings. Enjoy the longevity and tuning stability from a premium guitar string when you choose ThroBak guitar strings. Kid Andersen Signature ThroBak Strings are available direct at for $8.25 a set, $22.28 for a 3-pack and $39.60 for a 6-pack. Free shipping in the U.S. and Canada.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.
