Our troubled clown (Brad Smith) takes an excursion with his family. He tells them that his happiness in the world comes from them.

 


We wanted to test guitar players to see if they could tell which guitar has Cleartone coated strings compared to traditional (un-coated) strings. So we setup a test with two identical guitars: one has Cleartone coated strings and the other has regular un-coated strings both of the same gauge. Then we asked a variety of guitar players to play both guitars and guess which guitar has the coated strings. In nearly every case the guitar player couldn’t tell the difference and had to simply guess. Yes, sometimes they guess right, because there’s a 50/50 chance of guessing right…but the fact remains, they couldn’t tell the difference of the Cleartone coated guitar strings compared to the un-coated guitar strings so in our book that still counts as a win for Cleartone.

 




Bassist Brad Smith is one of the founding members of ‘90s rock band Blind Melon, known for their hit single “No Rain” off of their self titled debut album.

This album eventually attained quadruple- “RIAA certification” platinum success, debuting in the Billboard top 40 on October 9, 1993 and peaking at No. 11 on the Hot 100.

Blind Melon’s “No Rain” music video still appears on MTV to this day proving its place as iconic ‘90s memento.
