Hey guys! smile.gif

I’m very happy to announce that I’ve now got an endorsement deal with Elixir Strings! biggrin.gif

It all happened very fast; They called me up last week, then I met them over lunch yesterday, we talked for an hour or so and then signed the contract. They also asked if I was interested in playing at guitar shows, clinics and stuff like that. So i’m very excited about it! biggrin.gif

YES!!! Way to go Marcus!! That's awesome news!! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

I can't think of a more deserving person!

Elixir makes great strings. How did they hear about you?

Edit: does this mean you have to change your instructor info to read "what strings do you use?" answer "elixir!" laugh.gif

Congrats Marcus - that's fabulous. biggrin.gif I use Elixer's on my acoustics but my muso friends always talk me out of trying them on the electrics becuase they say that the tone suffers too much smile.gif - obviously you don't think this, I imagine you play mostly electric? So maybe I need to test them out after all...

They saw me the first time on YouTube, but I also got recommended by another guitarist (a swedish studio musician, who seem to have played with almost every artist in the world laugh.gif )

Yes, I think I'll change my info page to something like that laugh.gif

Thank you Rok. I appreciate it!! biggrin.gif

Funny you mention that because there is actually another company who have contacted me... but nothing is definite yet, so I won't say who it is or even talk about it!! tongue.gif I've already said too much laugh.gif

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"
