We wanted to focus on the basics and inform you about what to look for and simple inexpensive procedures to disinfect instruments.

SoundSynergies® CymbalCare–CONDITIONED METAL JUST SOUNDS BETTER–with less impact damage and cracking!

CymbalCare is a new breed of cymbal conditioner that removes grime and oxide surface build-up to allow your cymbals to flex and ‘breathe’ naturally for better response, projection, and tonal richness. Incorporating the latest research in cymbal technology, CymbalCare removes embedded contaminants that distort the natural wave-like motion of the metal alloys that comprise cymbals. Treated cymbals seem to sing with more tone and projection, last longer and are more resistant to cracking and warping. Read more

Sound Synergies WearBarrier® formula penetrates through the drumhead membrane to condition substrate fibers for enhanced playability and prolonged head life.

It’s a problem as old as drumming–how to make your drumheads last longer and keep them sounding great even as they take a beating night after night. Modern drumheads are made with a substrate fiber construction for good durability, but over time these synthetic fibers degrade and fray, diminishing head sound and response. Today’s drumheads offer more varieties and options than ever before, but they come at a price–stretching and protecting your investment in drumheads helps keep your bottom line healthy without compromising your drum sound. Now, with a simple WearBarrier® application that takes just minutes, you can keep your heads tuned longer and sounding sweeter and deeper. Read more

Your wah pedal is supposed to make your guitar cry, not make you cry. LECTRICare® is the conductive coating for guitar electronics that solves annoying problems with noise, pops, and clicks more effectively than standard contact cleaners. The product’s dry microfilm barrier technology is an alternative to oil-based contact cleaners that often cause more problems than they solve, leaving residues that migrate and build up. From FX pedals to rack gear, LECTRICare keeps your gear well-tuned and noise free.

STRINGTone® will become part of the Survival Kits that will be sold as a fund raiser for the NW Christian Musician Summit at the Seattle conference Nov. 4th & 5th. The kits actually make a big difference for as they sell them to their conference attendees at CMS and then use any leftover kits to add to the gifts to those who sign up to support a third world child through their ministry partner Child Fund® International. “CMS helped sign up a lot of kids last year (a school bus full) and that will make a significant difference in the children’s lives,” said Bruce Adolph, CMS Productions Coordinator.

CDs of new music and/or worship artists, guitar capos, effects pedals, guitar strings, certificates for services, cool widgets or promo items (coffee cups, t-shirts, brand new guitars 🙂 … anything that helps make their Survival Kit bags looks attractive to the registrants that buy them to help support CMS and its mission of Improving Skill: Inspiring Talent.

Electronic music and sound reinforcement gear performs night after night in shows where pristine sound quality is not a goal–it’s an absolute necessity. LECTRICare® Music Electronics has been developed over years of research for exceptional conditioning and maintenance of critical electronic systems to make certain that the show goes on.

Professional sound reinforcement, repair and rental services, and retail shops all assist customers in getting the best performance from their music gear. LECTRICare® Music Electronics is an incredibly effective solution in dealing with any issues of noise and static, usually in 30 seconds or less, making it an ideal add-on purchase for nearly any electronic component. Read more

Music repair and rental shops, through interaction with drummers and percussionists, are all too familiar with oxidation – it’s the process that causes messy black build-up on cymbals, quickly covering the cymbal surface with black marks that are then transferred to drumheads and drums. These small oxidation deposits grow to eventually restrict the full vibration of cymbals and drums, and will eventually lead to destructive corrosion. PROcussionCare® CymbalCare is a new product engineered to prevent the formation of black oxidation while also conditioning and cleaning the cymbal surface of extraneous marks and fingerprints.

An important aspect of CymbalCare that sets it apart from other cymbal cleaners and solutions is that CymbalCare will not effect the patina, subtle surface features that give cymbals their individual sonic character. Other cleaners use stripping and polishing agents that result in a unnaturally bright, harsh sound. CymbalCare’s gentle dry-to-the-touch formula is engineered to remove debris and foreign substances while preserving the cymbal patina for full-range, naturally attenuated tone. Read more

SoundSynergies is all about synergy–and the power of synergy is what makes this dynamic duo of music conditioning and maintenance products work together so well for those who make their living doing musical instrument rental and repair. The two formulas provide total care and conditioning for stringed instruments and all the tech gear that goes with them. STRINGTone® covers the instrument string part of the equation, while LECTRICare® is engineered for music electronics and sound reinforcement applications such as amplifiers, effects units, switches, potentiometers, etc.

A set of guitar strings can total more than 1,500” of wound surfaces. One simple and fast application of STRINGTone® with the included spray applicator and a lint-free cloth goes deep into string windings, displacing contaminants like dust particles, smoke, and sweat. STRINGTone®’s micro-structure provides an unmatched ability to penetrate and remove contaminants before they cause oxidation and corrosion that can compromise your guitar tone and feel. Treated strings resonate more for dynamic, full-range tone and sustain. Read more

In between string changes, maintain optimal tone and response with STRINGTone®, specifically engineered to evaporate in minutes, leaving your strings more resonant, performance-ready, dry-to-the-touch, and incredibly responsive. A micro-thin dry film remains to lubricate and guard against oxidation and corrosion for longer instrument performance life–all without the build-ups and migration of common silicone conditioners that can cause problems with fine finishes and sensitive electronics.

In a standard set of electric bass strings there are 128’ of string, or 1,536 inches of linear windings and core. Besides being an interesting factoid, this information addresses a key component of wound strings–with this amount of surface area to lube and condition, there is actually a significant amount of high-friction load bearing going on. Accordingly, STRINGTone is engineered for 3,300lbs. of load-bearing capacity to address friction and pressure issues. Going back to our set of bass strings, with 1,500 inches of wound string surface, a typical tune-up with an application of STRINGTone® will cost .002¢ per foot, so making your strings sing won’t break the bank. Read more

You know that sweet sound – that big, warm, clean tone that comes with putting on a new set of strings. Now you can command that killer tone whenever you want to with a quick and easy application of STRINGTone®, the maintenance and conditioning formula that’s taking the musical instrument string world by storm. Unlike other messy and largely ineffective liquid silicone string cleaners, STRINGTone®’s carrier component evaporates in minutes, leaving your strings and fretboard ready to play, dry to the touch, and wonderfully responsive to every expressive nuance. A micro-thin dry film remains to lubricate and guard against oxidation and corrosion, extending string performance life significantly. There are no troublesome build-ups or migration with repeated applications. Read more

SoundSynergies® would like to help your drumheads last longer–much longer. That is one of the main reasons SoundSynergies® recently introduced PROcussionCare WearBarrier, a new conditioning/maintenance formula that not only preserves that “like-new” feel and sound for up to four times longer, but also provides the feel of a larger “sweet spot” on drumheads, the area in the head’s center that responds with optimal tone and resonance. The new WearBarrier formula was created specifically to prolong performance life, increase rebound, and provide the best possible sonic response for drum heads, drum sticks, and mallet tips. Recommended to use when breaking in new drumheads, WearBarrier conditions the synthetic fibers used in drumheads, allowing greater flexibility and resistance to breakage. Read more
