Grand Rapids, MI (October 19, 2015) -- Introducing new ThroBak Vintage Choice Balanced Medium Acoustic Guitar strings for players who want a more balanced feel and a popular choice for DADGAD or standard tuning. Available in Round and Hex Core configurations.

ThroBak Vintage Choice round core acoustic strings are wound with 92/8 Phosphor Bronze. The round core gives a distinctive warm, full sound that any fan of round wound acoustic strings will immediately recognize.

Increasingly rare, ThroBak is proud to be one of just a few companies still offering acoustic round core strings.

There’s a wide variety of pedal-format devices available to improve your acoustic guitar’s amplified tone, including Fishman’s Aura, Line 6’s HX Stomp, and LR Baggs’ Voiceprint DI.

From DIs to multi-effects processors to IRs, there are plenty of ways to make your sound golden.

Whether you’re a professional player, weekend warrior, or a once-in-a-blue-moon open miker, you will likely be put in a position to play both electric and acoustic instruments on a gig. As you’re looking to build your switch-hitting pedalboard, you may find that electric and acoustic guitar processing haven’t exactly been treated equitably in the marketplace. Even a bog-standard electric guitar rig these days is populated with three overdrives du jour and a gaggle of space-age DSP-driven effects culled from a market saturated with bobs and bits intended to fatten your sound and thin your wallet. When compared to the smorgasbord of electric guitar processing products, the selection of acoustic-guitar-specific offerings may seem a bit spartan.
