Heid Music is teaming up with D’Addario to celebrate Earth Day and International Guitar Month once again by hosting a restring event from April 20-April 22 at all five Heid Music locations in Wisconsin. During this event, customers can bring in their guitar for a restring with fresh replacements installed by their knowledgeable team of music enthusiasts. All strings from this event will be recycled, helping to support everyday sustainable practices.

“We’re excited to partner with D’Addario to celebrate Earth Day and promote eco-friendly practices in the music industry,” said Todd Heid, CEO of Heid Music. “By making conscious recycling efforts, we can reduce waste and help protect the planet while also providing high-quality sound for our customers. As we mark our 75th anniversary, we recognize the importance of supporting sustainable initiatives to ensure the longevity of our legacy of music.”

As part of this year’s event, Heid Music is offering one free set of strings and re-string service per person and recycling the used strings in exchange for a $10 donation. Donations from the event will be donated to Guitars for Vets and the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin. Customers who participate in the event can choose where their $10 donation goes and make a significant impact on the local community.

Heid Music’s support for Guitars for Vets is founded on the recognition of music’s power to create a positive impact that promotes change in communities. Guitars for Vets provides complimentary guitar classes and instruments to military veterans contending with PTSD and other psychological injuries. By supporting this noble cause, we all can help cultivate the profound benefits of music in the lives of local veterans. (https://guitars4vets.org/)

Additionally, the beauty and diversity of Wisconsin’s natural landscapes provide inspiration to artists and musicians, and protecting these resources means preserving sources of inspiration for future generations. The Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin works to protect and conserve Wisconsin’s natural resources, including wildlife, forests, and waterways. Supporting the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin underscores the importance of taking proactive measures to ensure a sustainable future so that the legacy of music can continue to live on.

All musicians, from beginners to professionals, are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to give their instruments a little TLC by getting a fresh set of strings installed and supporting local charities at the same time. The restring service is available to all standard 6-string acoustic & electric guitars.

Heid Music is celebrating all things guitar the entire month of April. This includes offering unparalleled monthly and weekly deals, hosting captivating performances with esteemed local musicians, and presenting complimentary workshops designed to teach fundamental maintenance skills, among other exciting activities.
