An Evening with D’Addario at Red Dog Music in Edinburgh


Free D’Addario Guitar Workshop in Edinburgh

We often get customers in asking for advice on how to take care of a guitar, what strings they should get, or what difference gauges make. So we thought: why not invite in the experts to help shed some light on guitar-care? Adam from D’Addario – one of the biggest names in guitar accessories – will be in our Edinburgh branch on Wednesday 19th September to host a dedicated D’Addario guitar workshop.

Throughout the evening Adam will talk about and demonstrate everything there is to know about guitar strings and accessories, and answer your questions in an informal Q&A. We’ll have various stations set up in store so you can get hands on and try out different strings, gadgets and accessories from D’Addario and learn how things work.

We’ll have exclusive special discounts available on the day, and to close off the evening we’ll have an exciting raffle which will see one person win a year’s supply of strings*!

Whether you’re an acoustic, electric, or bass player, this evening is a fun learning opportunity for all. From the basics like what difference gauges make, to finding out how a guitar string is made and what differences material options there are, come along to learn how best to get long life, great tone and the best guitar or bass sound out of your strings.

The evening starts at 6pm and we should be wrapping up at about 8:30 or so. Spaces are limited, so book a free ticket to secure your spot. We hope to see you then!


*12 sets of D’Addario NYXL, or 4 sets of NYXL Bass strings, or 12 sets of Nickel Bronze, in the gauge of your choice.
