Episode #8 – Dan Maggi from String Butler
In today’s episode of the Modern Musician Magazine Podcast, we talk to Dan Maggi from String Butler, an innovative guitar accessory that drastically improves the tuning of guitars with 3 x 3 headstock tuner configurations. Dan gives us some key insight into the genesis of the idea of The String Butler, how it works, various models available and we also dig into the theory about what actually keeps a guitar in tune. The results may surprise you! On a personal note, in my 40+ years of being both a professional guitar player, as well as a guitar salesman, I can’t say there have been too many completely innovative products that have made such an impact on me as much as the String Butler. You will definitely want to give this episode a listen!
