Yngwie Malmsteen Signature Accessories
Fender introduces the Yngwie Malmsteen Signature Accessories, featuring artist approved guitar strings, cables, gig bags, tuners, straps and there's even a signature overdrive pedal!
Fender's latest venture with the neo-classical shredder is quite unique in that it goes beyond just the guitar and amp, covering essential guitar accessories and gear.
The first item on the press release is the new Fender Yngwie Malmsteen Signature Electric Guitar Strings. They are custom designed with artist approved wrap ratios and gauges designed to match Yngwie's speed, tone and playability requirements. They are crafted using nickel-plated steel and utilize Fender Bullet ends that is said to help improve sustain and tone. String gauge is super light: 8-11-14-22-32-46. Retail Price: $17.99
Next on the list are two new cables - one high-end and a regular version. The Fender Yngwie Malmsteen High-Performance Signature Cable is the more premium one with a sleek red-braided exterior jacket and extra-thick interior to help reduce handling noise. The cable ends feature custom-designed commercial-grade brass connectors that work reliably and quietly. These cables are engineered to provide sonic transparency that satisfies the artist's ears, without coloring or otherwise changing your tone.
The Fender Yngwie Malmsteen Cable offer a more affordable alternative designed specifically for live performances and are strategically engineered to resist twisting, kinking and retention of any “physical memory.” Brass connectors deliver the best sonic balance between your equipment and your performance. Both cables are backed by a lifetime warranty. Retail Price: $34.99-$49.99
The stylish Fender Yngwie Malmsteen Signature Guitar Bag is the third accessory in the series. It comes with a black and red color theme that features the artist signature on the extra exterior pocket. Features include thick-cell foam padding, soft Malmsteen style "leopard-print" plush interior and durable nylon exterior that is meant to handle regular transport. Retail Price: $79.99
Even guitar gods need to stay in tune, and so the Fender Yngwie Malmsteen Clip-On Tuner was born. It has a stylish chrome bezel with built-in vibration sensor that provides accurate tuning in even noisy areas. The large interface has an easy-to-read LCD needle that indicates correct pitch, designed to be easy to operate even on the darkest stages. At just 50 grams, the tuner clips and transports discretely. Tuning range is A0-C8 and A4 range is 430Hz-450Hz. Retail Price: $19.99
The Fender Yngwie Malmsteen Rising Force Overdrive Pedal is an updated version of Yngwie’s personal overdrive pedal, which features increased gain while retaining his trademark tone. The pedal is not yet on sale at the Fender store, but it was displayed at the recently wrapped 2014 NAMM - naturally more information will soon be available.
Most of the Yngwie Malmsteen Signature Accessories listed above are now on sale at Fender.
