D’Addario/Planet Waves/SKB cases
Sponsored: Seymour Duncan
“D’Addario strings and Planet Waves Australia were kind enough to give Alarum an artist endorsement. So extra special thanks to Mark Inglese, Pete Murnane, hell, even the D’Addario president Rick Drumm (and he is a drummer!!) for a great opportunity. I even met John D’Addario, he is an ass kicker!!!”
“In October of 2012 I did a 3 week European tour with Alarum and The Levitation Hex. We touched down in Amsterdam, I opened my case at the airport and noticed two strings had snapped (friggin’ baggage handlers). So the day before Progpower Europe in Baarlo, The Netherlands, I put on my usual set of D’Addario EXL 120’s (9-42), and you know what? I used that same set for the WHOLE TOUR. I even tried (purposely) to snap the strings by employing huge bends, pulling the whammy bar up, everything I could think of. The strings were fine. Great strings on a great guitar equal…….(wait for it)…. GREATNESS!! I had zero problems regarding my gear for the whole tour. One less thing to worry about, really.
John D’Addario popped into my work. I told him the above story. I love them strings!! April 24, 2013.
It was a pleasure meeting you during my recent visit to Australia. Your enthusiasm for our products is very much appreciated and I hope you enjoy them for many years to come.

Sept 24, 2013: Scott Olson from Seymour Duncan is hooking me up with pick ups to both of my Ibanez guitars (RG1570 AND 3120). I’m not sure it’s an actual endorsement, but it’s free, so I am in love with SO and SD. We’re having a baby in June.
These came in the mail just yesterday. Waiting on another three.
