Vintage Bronze™ 12 String Acoustic Strings. Same great strings as the VintageBronze™ Acoustics. These sets are balance-gauged so your guitar neck doesn't do anything it's not supposed to… like turn into a pretzel.


The Experience

Scooter had been on tour for longer than anyone knew, really. We’d ask him, “Hey Scooter, how long have you been out on the road?” And he’d just look down at his worn-out old high-tops, shake his head, not so full of hair anymore, receded and white, and say, “Can’t say I remember a time when I wasn’t loadin’… or unloadin’ a bus.” And then he’d look around sort of quick, left to right, and he’d notice something that needed to be done, a cable that needed to be taped down, a mic that needed to be plugged in. A bottle of water that, even though no one asked for it, Scooter would always set out for each and every one of us in the band. Scooter’s that kind of guy. You couldn’t ask for a better man behind the scenes.

He’s been doing it for years. No one really knows how long. Everyone hopes he’ll be out there, riding in that bus from dusk til dawn, forever. We know we couldn’t do it without him. And something tells me the feeling’s mutual.

Dean Markley Vintage Bronze acoustic strings are the strings that started it all. With an outer wrap that’s diamond-drawn 85/15 alloy, they’ll give you a sound for the ages, one that will outlast them all.

Starting with the Ultimate Speaker Demo, an ever-increasing number of the GearTunes audio  clips are being tracked using the Radial JCR Reamp. The Reamp was invented by my good friend and colleague John Cuniberti who engineered/co-produced many of Joe Satriani's most infamous recordings.

For GearTunes, reamping allows me to record a track where the guitar "hears" the amp in the room, but initially only the guitar or guitar and effects signal is recorded. This allows me to spend additional time perfecting amp tones and mic placement once I have the performance I'm looking for. One of the byproducts of this process is the creation of GearTunes DI Clips which enable you to play select guitars and effects through your amp by using your mobile device or computer as a reamp device.

For GearTunes DI Clips - and Gear Tune DI Clips ONLY (always found under the DI clips tab for gear that has one), you can play our guitar and effects through your amp. Simply use an unbalanced cable that terminates with an 1/8th inch jack on one end and a 1/4 inch jack on the other. Connect the 1/8th jack to the output of your mobile device or computer and the 1/4 inch jack into the front of your amp. Start off with your amp volume at zero and your mobile device (or computer) volume all the way up to ensure you hit the front end of the amp with enough signal, and then gradually increase the volume of the clean channel on your amp until you reach a level that is not capable of causing damage to your ears or equipment. GearTunes accepts no liability for the use, abuse or misuse of these clips, and playing them into your amp is done exclusively at your own risk.

I am tremendously excited about being able to share GearTunes DI Clips with you as you journey on your quest to find right gear for the music you play! Cheers ~ Doug:)
