Ant Hill Music works tirelessly day in and day out to provide awesome products and awesome prices, from awesome people. We have been adding hundreds of new sku’s to our inventory and I had not had the chance to share a new blog with you sooner. Better late than never right?
A few of the guys went to NAMM 2015, and had the pleasure of seeing some great new products as well as some very unique ones, meeting industry reps and having a kick ass time with other fellow music industry buffs. Today I will talk about some of the new products we are now carrying thanks to these new relationships. I will try to keep these descriptions brief as I will be talking about most of the new stuff we are now working on.

I know what you are thinking…this is pretty typical for parts. Here is something different…introducing the Strumstick, by Bob McNally.
Hand Built in the USA by the Designer of the Martin Backpacker
You will sound good right from the start and you can play songs the first day. The Strumstick was designed for people who don’t play any music, and are sure they can’t play any music. There are no wrong notes, there are just the notes of a simple scale. Since there are no wrong notes, there are no mistakes, you can have fun making sounds without worrying about getting it right. When you begin, you fret the 1st string with one finger, and strum all three strings with a pick.
Anywhere you fret the 1st string sounds good, and the other two strings make a background chord automatically! The Strumstick is perfect for children, Its fun, easy, rugged, and kids can make music with it right from the start. The Strumstick is a fast creative tool for composition, or just for relaxation. It will return you to the simple joy of playing that got you into music in the first place.
The general idea with the Strumstick is baby steps. One finger, one string, it doesn’t matter where you put it, Next step, you start to organize where you put your finger, but it’s still one finger, one string. Later you get fancier with the rhythms that your strumming hand can do, you can finger more than one string when you are comfortable. The included instruction book and CD helps you to get started and encourage you to relax and experiment. The instructions explain and demonstrate the various things you can do to increase the complexity of your playing. The Strumstick makes learning music FUN right from the start!
Its was so easy and fun to play that I was able to play this at a church gig the other week in under an hour. There are a few different keys available. (I played the key of D model versus the G) This is a live mix of the instrument:
