BLACK DIAMOND STRINGS - LIFE CHANGING MOMENTS
My name is Rick Tindall. I taught myself to play acoustic guitar starting way back in June 1968. My first guitar was purchased for $15.00 at the local Zayre store in Indianapolis. I didn't know anything about guitar strings and the fellow who worked in the music department recommended Black Diamond. My dad bought me a set and it made that cheap little guitar ring! Six months later, just after the Beatles released their White Album in November 1968, I acquired a Harmony Monterey arch-top acoustic. Of course, I bought Black Diamond strings for it. I've experimented with other brands over the years but have always went back to Black Diamond because they just have that certain something that I can't quite put my finger on, but my EARS sure know! I'm 55 now, early retirement due to heart disease, but, by golly, I STILL have that Harmony Monterey, had the neck reset a few years ago. I still put Black Diamond strings on it, and, for a few moments, I close my eyes and when I strum that old guitar and hear those sweet strings, I'm transported back to the late 1960s, and I'm 18 once more. Thank you, Black Diamond, for a consistently reliable product and great, great musical memories! Really and Sincerely, Rick Tindall
Hello and welcome to my story, I had bought a Jackson bass, just an average Jackson concert series. Well being that she is very different than other guitars cause of the paint job they did on her. nothing fancy, just once flat black color with chrome parts. well I wanted to make her special cause she is my first bass I ever had so I went with some bassline pickups, and that made a very huge change in her, but that’s not all of the story, I friend of mine who works at the music store told me about the these strings and they were black just as my Jackson is so I said why not lets go for it and see if there is a difference. well when they put them in her and redid the pickups, the strings on low e gave me a certain sound like no other, my mentor said he never hear something like so he retune it and it was still there, so I thinking that the pickups and these strings are doing something very strange and I love it cause she is not like many anymore, I will never go back to any other strings in my whole life. from till this day, I shall use black diamonds for everything I own from guitars to basses to acoustic guitars. You guys and gals make one hell of a string and it holds a tune for a very long time no need to tune her all the time because she keeps it in and she takes a beaten from black metal style to doom metal styles.. she does her best, these strings really work and well worth the money. thank you BD for making such a great strings. Your fan, Dave Spooker /bass player
