Student/Educator Discounts

Student/Educator Discounts

Apr 26th 2024

We have received several messages from students recently asking if there is any way to receive a price break on strings to accommodate the financial straits that usually come with being a student. The answer is, yes, we do have a student discount program; it is just that not many folks know about it.

Please feel free to pass on this information to any students or educators that you know:

Students, educators, and institutions are eligible for a 15% discount* off our handmade Academie, Tricolore, and Red Diamond strings. No minimum purchases required. (Not applicable with sales or other discounts.)

*Sheep gut strings (except for Tricolore pure gut strings), instruments, accessories, straps, peg turners, guitar roses, rosin, etc., are NOT eligible for discount.

To request an Education Discount (directly, or via your institution's purchasing department):

  • Send a message to: requesting to be put on the discount list
  • Along with a photo of your student ID (or a similar method of simple verification), shipping address, contact info, etc.
  • Include your string order, and we will send an invoice for review along with a secure payment link

So the list is kept current, each year we clear out all Student Discounts, but you can send a message and request an additional year of discounts.
