Website Version 2.0: the Relaunch!

Things 4 Strings re-launch

The home of our popular string teaching tools

just got cooler, hipper and more fun!

It’s easier to navigate with big, bold, beautiful photos and videos.

Mobile users will be pleased because the new site is “responsive,” and will fit neatly into whatever size device you are using to access it: smart phone, tablet or PC.

There are more ways to buy:  

  • Onsite, or from your favorite retailer using our new dealer locator. 
  • Now you can shop by category and instrument type, and
  • You can now pay using Paypal

PLUS you can rate and review our products right on the page.

Information is easier to access and more comprehensive than ever.

News, Reviews and FAQs are separated and easy to explore in depth.

The site is full of information of interest to teachers, students and parents.

Our new blog will keep you up to date on all of Ruth’s interesting string-lover finds and teaching notes. You can subscribe to the blog directly, or see links to her posts on Facebook, Linkedin, Google+ and Twitter.

This is just the start! More will be coming soon as expands its new, robust web presence.
