Scott Marquart founded Stringjoy in 2014 in frustration at being unable to get hold of custom-gauge string sets. It was the world’s first guitar string custom shop and, begin based in Nashville, Tennessee, Scott soon found plenty of pro musicians flocking to his business.
Stringjoy focuses on quality production over churning them out as fast as possible, introducing check points throughout the production process to ensure everything is as it should be.
The combination of skilled human labour with high-tech as well as vintage machinery makes Stringjoy electric guitar strings unique, and they come with several benefits including a longer life, and less stretching required when stringing your guitar thanks to being wound at typical tuning tension.
The Bleak District Tapescape is one of the best delay and ambience style pedals ever invented. The controls are all intuitive but highly flexible, the sounds are rich and detailed, the modulation can go from dreamy to nightmarish very quickly, and all of that inside a small footprint with a low power requirement. It's difficult to get a bad sound out of it, honestly.
Add in that Boost shipped it out quickly and it arrived with a nice note written on the invoice, is there anything else you could ask for? Definitely will be buying more from both Boost and Bleak District in future.
I ordered a set of strings from Boost, that did not initially turn up. After contacting Boost via the website they immediately sent out another set (no questions asked). Both sets arrived a few days later (Thanks Royal Mail!). Boost were prompt in dealing with the issue (gave) me a set of strings and got things sorted out. Highly recommend you use these guys.
I didn’t know that particular manufacturer from Italy, but I definitely recommend their "Vintage Vibe”. It’s simple, intuitive, it looks awesome, the build quality seems impeccable, and most importantly, it sounds fantastic.
Really loving the range of organic tape sounds from the tapescape. Great build quality and a world of wobbly good times. Instant atmosphere as soon as you turn it in. Great small company from the UK, worth every penny
