The Six D'Addario

Given D’Addario‘s pioneering legacy in music accessories, they are one of the few, if only, string manufacturers with the ability to legitimately call their strings The Six. The new campaign, featuring the tagline The Six That Get You, highlights how “D’Addario is the acoustic string that can always get you to whatever moment you are chasing with your music. Art and science, passion and innovation all come to life from E to E for an unparalleled tone and feel. The Six amplify the power, the feeling and the reason so many players choose D’Addario strings in the very personal activity of making and playing music.” In concert with the print campaign, D’Addario launched a website for The Six That Get You, featuring exclusive interviews with top acoustic performers, interactive content, as well as striking new images and videos shot through the soundhole of a guitar, and much more.
