Feel what you play. Play what you feel. Thanks to our new OPTIWEB Coating, these nickel-plated steel electric guitar strings give you the performance of a natural string-that crisp tone, natural feel and playable grip you know and love-without sacrificing the signature long-lasting tone life of Elixir Strings. Compared to our POLYWEB Coating and NANOWEB Coating, the OPTIWEB Coating offers our most natural and familiar feel. This lightweight coating allows the string to vibrate with less damping, while also having a firm grip, putting you in control of bends, vibrato and sustain. So choose the same premium electric guitar strings that experienced players worldwide trust to keep their incredible tone longer than any other string available. Unlike other string brands, Elixir Strings coats the whole string. This protects not only the outer string surface but also the gaps between the windings where common tone-deadening gunk typically builds up in other brands’ coated and uncoated guitar strings. Anti-Rust Plating on plain steel strings ensures longer tone life for the entire set. Who wouldn’t love more quality playing time between the hassle and cost of string changes? For a slicker, gentler feel, try a set of electric guitar strings with our POLYWEB Coating, which also feature our warmest tone. Meanwhile, our NANOWEB coated strings sound bright and feel smooth, striking a dynamic balance between POLYWEB Coating and OPTIWEB Coating. Of course, the kind of string you play is all a matter of personal preference. Not sure what tone or feel is right for you? Try them out for yourself, and find your new favorite string from Elixir Strings. Elixir Strings: Great tone. Long life.
Social media is a shitshow lately. I don’t need to remind you about certain divisive presidents of certain international superpowers, or particular superstars who always seem to pop up to draw attention to themselves when someone else is getting too much positive press. Whipping out your phone to check your social feeds can be unintentionally stressful, and the metal community is no exception. Staind’s Aaron Lewis shot his mouth off at Limp Bizkit’s Wes Borland recently for referring to Los Angeles rather than his native Jacksonville, Florida as his home (like there aren’t millions of people who want to re-forge their identity outside of their hometown), and it spilled over into Facebook arguments among fans on various Facebook groups. Drum legend Mike Portnoy is always speaking out against metal news sites that seem to phrase their headlines in ways designed specifically to generate arguments in the comments section. And don’t get me started on the shitstorms whipped up in the replies any time Kerrang! or Revolver tweets about Slipknot, Ghost, The Pretty Reckless, Babymetal… It’s enough to make you want to chuck your phone in the creek and go have a lie down under a tree.
Sometimes you need to step back and realise that your social media feed is for you to curate. If you’re cramming this information in your head all day, it’s okay to make sure you’re only cramming in the stuff that doesn’t send you into a panic attack. I’ve noticed there are a few particularly great social media accounts that post uplifting-but-still-totally-metal content, and I find they help me get through my day as someone who buries their face in their phone way too much and would rather load up on a ‘promote what’s great, not what you hate’ philosophy. If that sounds good to you, here are some recommendations for people to follow on Twitter. Oh and I’m @iheartguitar if you don’t follow me already.
Ben Eller – @BenEllerGuitars
Uncle Ben is one of the sweestest dudes you’ll ever meet. A great guitarist and bassist, he puts a lot of heart and happiness into everything he does, whether it’s sharing spicy guitar memes or his hugely popular This Is Why You Suck At Guitar YouTube series. (Dude can only get away with that series title because he’s so damn nice).
Kimberly Freeman (One Eyed Doll) – @Kimberly_OED
Kimberly is the frontwoman of the duo One Eyed Doll. Imagine if a supernatural horror movie could play metal guitar, or if What We Do In The Shadows was a band instead of a hilarious mockumentary. Kimberly is incredibly supportive of her fans, and her retweet game is crazy strong.
Jose Mangin – @JoseMangin
A self-described heavy metal ambassador, Jose is a host on Sirius XM Radio and the dude lives metal. He’s the kind of guy who will put his Uber driver on the guest list for a festival he’s hosting, and he’s a big believer in using metal as a catalyst to bring people together across racial and social divides.
Jared Dines – @JaredDines
Jared is a music/comedy YouTuber with nearly 2 million subscribers, who makes videos about metal cliches and tropes, but is also a talented guitarist who understands that metal can simply be fun. Check out his recent video where he uses a custom Australian-made 18-string Ormsby guitar to create a crushing-but-hilarious djent track.
Higgo – @Higgo74
You may have heard Higgo on Triple M or GoldFM, or on his Distortion podcast. Dude is metal through-and-through and he always on top of the latest bands and releases as well as the classics. Even if I do razz him for tweeting about reality TV sometimes. Heh.
Jaide Soto – @Jaide_Alicia
Jaide is an 10-year-old metal journalist from the USA who was raised on a diet of Van Halen and KISS, and whose metalhead dad helped her set up shutupandrockon.com to share her reviews and interviews with the likes of Fozzy’s Rich Ward (another great person to follow at @thedukeofmetal), Faster Pussycat guitarist and rescue-dog advocate Ace Von Johnson (@acevonjohnson) and Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider.
Dean Delray – @DeanDelray
Dean is a comedian and former rocker from California whose podcast Let There Be Talk is a must-listen resource for great conversations with rock royalty. He’s utterly hilarious onstage so if he’s ever in your neck of the woods, do go see him and you’ll have a great night.

Hagstrom introduced the Impala models in 1963, and the instruments quickly found their way into the hands of many professional and aspiring musicians throughout the world. This was a period of great experimentation and innovation in electric guitar design. With their futuristic body shapes and unique assortment of tone-shaping options, the Impala and Condor stood out and became integral in creating great music and inspiring amazing artists. They have become highly sought after as collectibles, and vintage instruments still find their way onto stages worldwide. Now, don’t look any further. Back and here to stay: the all new Condor and Impala models. With their re-introduction in 2015, Hagstrom has taken great care to keep the set-neck “soul” of the Impala intact while incorporating important design improvements that will immediately appeal to modern players. The neck profile has been slightly rounded, weight balance has been optimized, and important improvements to the “Vintage Tremar” vibrato unit have been made. Finally, an improved switching array maintains the look and function of the originals while incorporating modern, dependable, and ergonomic slide switches. Since the tone of these instruments carved such a powerful space in the hearts of players, countless hours have been spent to reproduce the essence of the original pickups used in the Impala. The hard work has paid off with Hagstrom’s AlNiCo 5 “Retro-S” pickups, which expertly recreate the essence of the ‘60s sound and, at the same time, keep the door open for more modern sonic possibilities. All Hagstrom electric guitars and basses include their patented H-Expander truss rod. Providing tension at both ends and running the entire length of the neck, the rigid yet light-weight alloy truss rod allows for a very low action and thin neck, two factors that were instrumental in earning Hagstrom its reputation as the world’s fastest playing guitar. The H-Expander truss rod not only provides ultimate neck stability, but it also contributes to Hagstrom’s unique tone. Longer sustain and a round attack are some of the sonic characteristics the H-Expander adds to the tonal essence of Hagstrom. Resinator wood is a wood composite material that is both more uniform in density and more stable than any standard wood product. These characteristics eliminate dead spots or “wolf tones” sometimes associated with conventional wood fingerboards. Resinator wood has an articulate sound similar to high quality ebony, but without any of the problems associated with ebony. It provides a stable and clear tone, and also adds higher overtones and harmonics which uniquely detail each note. Like our H-Expander truss rod, Resinator wood is a major contributor to the distinctive “Hagstrom tone”. Hagstrom uses a variety of different neck joints throughout our range. Our set-neck recipe is the classic and time-tested Mortise and Tenon joint, a design that most efficiently transfers string energy from neck to body, and can often only be found on more expensive custom-built guitars. A team of experienced and dedicated craftsmen hand carves every neck joint, insuring perfect execution of this traditional technique preferred by luthiers for generations.

The Guess Who is responsible for countless rock classics, which still retain a major presence on rock radio – “American Woman,” “No Time,” “These Eyes,” etcetera. The band is set to return on September 14th with their latest album, ‘The Future IS What It Used To Be’, released via Cleopatra Records (available in CD, Vinyl, and Digital formats).
The band is Garry Peterson (Drums, Vocals), D# (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Piano), Will E. (Guitar, Harp, Vocals), Leonard Shaw (Keyboards, Flute, Sax, Vocals), and Rudy Sarzo (Bass, Vocals). The album’s first single, ‘Playin’ on the Radio’, will be released on July 17th. It can be heard on Spotify, Apple Music and other streaming services. Also featured on the album are several special guests including, Tommy Shaw (Styx) on vocals, Brent Fitz (Slash, Gene Simmons) percussion, Jim Kale (Guess Who founding member) and Michael Devin (Whitesnake) on bass guitar.
“The song is a celebration of the radio and what it meant to us all.”, explains D#. “Whenever a new great song hit the airwaves, the DJ would say a few words then off to the races! You’d tune in just to hear it over and over again. The character in the song could be any one of us as we move ahead in life. Great music has the innate power to transport you back to so many great memories in an instant. Music is healing. I see it AND feel it every single night in our audience.”
A music video for the track has been filmed (directed by Nigel Dick and shot in Las Vegas), and the song can be pre-ordered on iTunes. The video can be viewed here:
“I love what I do, and I love trains and I love rock n’ roll,” explains Nigel about the video. “So, I was honored to be asked to shoot The Guess Who. And when they told me they were available for a day in Vegas and by chance I stumbled on this wonderful rail-yard full of old engines just up the road from the strip – I was in heaven – and up to my axles in dust! It was a perfect day.”
And the band is pleased with the results. “My very first music video…who knew?!” says Garry. “Having the privilege of working with the legendary Nigel Dick, took me back to growing up in an era where music videos told a creative visual story that I always looked forward to seeing by my favorite artists,” adds Will. “This track was no exception, adding a colorful, action packed sequence to a great story.”
Garry Peterson: “I never dreamed that I would get a chance to record an album, after 40 years, in the same way, and with the same recording gear that we used in the 60s and 70s. This was truly a blessing for me and a humbling, cathartic experience for my musical soul. Thank you to all my bandmates, and everyone who helped make it a reality. I hope our fans enjoy it as much as I do.”
D#: “This all started when I wrote ‘Playing on the Radio’. Lyrically and musically, these songs are the soundtrack to my journey with The Guess Who over the last 10 years. This record was a joy and an honor to create. As version 3.0 of this iconic band, we had our work cut out for us. The challenge in this type of situation is always to be true to the heartroots of the original blueprint, as well as being able to journey onwards into an inspired future, incorporating the new energies that we bring to the experience, as you do in any family, generation after generation. I hope you enjoy the ride as much as we did.”
Will E: “I am honored to be a part of this chapter of The Guess Who. We specifically wrote and arranged the music to reflect what people have always loved about the band; great songs with big vocal driven choruses. We accomplished our own sound while maintaining the classic nature that makes The Guess Who an iconic band.”
Rudy Sarzo: “The Guess Who is part of the soundtrack of my life. It’s truly an honor to have performed on the new record. And I’m already looking forward to the next one.”
Leonard Shaw: “It has been quite the trip since I joined the Guess Who 25 years ago, but I am stoked about our new recording of original songs! These songs are fun to play live, and people are digging them!”
And soon, fans will be able to hear the latest work from this legendary band, upon the arrival of the rocking and inspired ‘The Future IS What It Used To Be.’
