Olde Town Pickin' Parlor is excited to announce the addition of Audio Sprockets Tone Dexter preamps.  These revolutionary preamps are sure to provide you with the best in acoustic tone.

"ToneDexter restores the rich body tone of your acoustic instrument to the pickup using proprietary digital signal processing technology combined with a pristine analog signal path. Audio Sprockets has created a way to learn the difference between the sound coming from the pickup and the sound coming from a microphone, placed in front of the instrument, and use that information to create a transformation they call a WaveMap. Think of it as charting a course from point A to point B.

When you first get your ToneDexter, you do a one-time training session with both a mic and the pickup plugged into ToneDexter. This way, ToneDexter can listen to both signals simultaneously and learn the difference between the two.  By playing for about a minute, ToneDexter figures out how to simultaneously correct for the pickup’s deficiencies andrestore the missing body tone to the pickup signal, and creates the WaveMap. With a simple press of a button, ToneDexter stores that WaveMap in one of the eleven available preset locations. You can then put the microphone away and enjoy beautiful, lifelike sounds from your guitar, violin, mandolin, or other acoustic instrument." from Audio Sprockets website.


VISESNUT CASES

AMERICAN STRING

OTPP recently added American String to our inventory of strings.  

From American String,

"IF YOU HAVE EVER PLAYED A GUITAR OR PIANO 

CHANCES ARE YOU HAVE BEEN PLAYING OUR STRINGS

That is because we have been the only maker of strings for Steinway and Sons Pianos (and basically every other piano) for more than 100 years AND we have been producing the core and wrap wire for most of the guitar string industry for decades.  In fact, many times we have wound strings for other guitar string brands.  However, too often the craft of good string winding eventually gets sacrificed to cost savings or just sent off-shore and discarded. 

THE REAL MAGIC OF STRING MAKING!

The market is full of promises of mystical string design or a new space-age material that will improve your tone or the performance of a string.  We love innovation but it is highly likely that those claims are simply marketing hype.  The real magic is in:

The highest quality source metal (we used superior American steel), 

Advanced manufacturing technologies that we use in our own wire mills, and 

Generations of expertise and manufacturing processes to wind strings for your guitars by our craftsmen right here in the United States of America.  

This produces the highest quality longest lasting strings,...superior tone, great feel in your hands, strings that stay in tune and perform longer than other brands.

AMERICAN STRING BRAND

We have been a pioneer in the string business since 1912 and we launched the American String brand in 2016 to boldly bring you the finest strings for guitars and other fretted instruments, in a manner that we think our players appreciate and deserve.  We combine old-fashioned business principles and advanced manufacturing technologies that we have developed for more than a century to produce the highest quality longest lasting strings.  The proof is in the performance!
