NAMM 2017: Beatles straps, picks & more from D'Addario

Four polyester straps are being re-released featuring art from the White Album and variations of famous Beatles logos.

D’Addario has announced that it will be showcasing a range of new guitar accessories and extensions to its premium strings lines at NAMM 2017.

The Beatles are back at D’Addario Accessories, featuring the return of top-selling Beatles-licensed guitar straps and picks.

The strap line features vegan straps (leather strap style adjuster) with designs from Meet the Beatles, Yellow Submarine, Sgt. Pepper, and Revolver.

Additionally, there are four polyester straps being re-released that feature art from the White Album and variations of famous Beatles logos.

The pick line features two pack-out styles: a blister daisy pick pack available in all gauges and a collectable pick tin (medium gauge only). All featuring art from famous albums of the Fab Four!

The Beatles vegan straps retail for £46.50 and the polymer straps retrial for £27.90, available January 15th. The Beatles pick tins retail for £10.60 and the individual packs retail for £8.50, also available in the UK on Feburary

D’Addario has also announced the new addition to its circuit breaker line of instrument cables with the Latching Cut-Off Switch model.

This new model features a gold-plated plug for superior signal flow and corrosion resistance, and has the same solderless plug connection as its predecessor. Its newest feature is the actuated “kill switch” that allows for noise-free instrument changes – press the switch once to mute the signal to the amplifier completely, and press again to reactivate the signal flow.

The Latching Cut-Off Switch Circuit Breaker Cables will be available in the UK from March 1st in straight and right angle plugs in a variety of lengths:

RRP from £30.50 – £45.50, PW-AGL-10 £30.50.

There will also be a brand-new strap innovation form D’Addario for 2017 – the CinchFit acoustic jack lock for guitar straps.

Endpin jacks are notorious for creating hassles when applying and removing standard guitar straps, and usually require modification to the strap which results in a less-than-desirable fit. With CinchFit, players now have a fast and easy solution for attaching their strap to acoustic guitars with endpin output jacks.

The Acoustic Cinch Fit loops through the end of any instrument strap, and its magnetic security clasp makes sure it stays in place. The cinch clamping action also allows easy application and removal, utilizing the weight of the instrument to remain locked onto the endpin so the guitar is always held securely. And
with no strap modification required, now you can easily attach any strap to acoustic endpin jacks.

The CinchFit Acoustic Jack Lock will be available in the UK from febuary 1st with an RRP of £13.50.

Lastly, D’Addario is extending it current premium lines of strings with the following models:

– Nickel Bronze Mandolin, RRP £13.90
– EXP Acoustic set for Taylor GS Mini Bass, EXPPBB190GS, gauge .37 - .90, RRP £52.00
– NYXL Bass Heavy set, NYXL55110, gauge 55-110, RRP £40.50
