GJ2 Guitars Partners With Cleartone Strings-
The search for a clearer-sounding guitar string has led OrangeCounty-based instrument manufacturer GJ2 Guitars to partner withCleartone Strings. GJ2 now includes Cleartone Strings as standardequipment on all its top-quality electric guitars.
GJ2 co-founders Grover Jackson and Jon Gold toured Cleartone'sNorth Hollywood headquarters to learn more about the product line.As CEO Jon Gold explained,
"We've been extensively trying different string brands. Wewanted something that would not only sound great when you put themon, but would also keep sounding great as long as possible so thatplayers will have the best possible experience when they try one ofour guitars in a store."
While most coated strings use layers of tone-killing material,Cleartone strings instead feature the thinnest coating in theindustry. At one micron, they feel and sound like traditionalstrings, but offer 3-5 times longer string life than their closestcompetitor. In fact, Cleartone strings tested 36% louder than thenext leading coated-string brand, according to an independent soundlab. Jon Gold remarked, "These strings maintain their tone andfreshness longer than any other string we've tried."
A highlight of the Cleartone visit for Grover and Jon was thechance to meet the company's owner, music legend Phil Everly of theEverly Brothers. The Everly's harmonies influenced many of thebiggest groups of the '60s including The Beatles, The Beach Boys,and Simon & Garfunkel.
