Carl Hardin, Josh Turner Touring Tech took Acousti-Lok on the road:
"As a touring tech, I am always looking for products to keep my equipment safe, secure, and show ready. Having the Acousti-Lok with us on the road has been the greatest product you can ask for in a acoustic guitar. It allows you to have a locking strap, and not modify your instrument. Touring with country artists who use acoustic guitars worth several thousand dollars, this is a must have product that does not budge even after multiple hand offs and movement across the stage, and is non invasive to the instrument and is safe and easy to install. Will be adding these to my tool box and adding them to every acoustic instrument that we have out on the road!! Everything MusicNomad makes is gold and I'm beyond stoked there is a company out there as great as MusicNomad."
Daniel, Kane Brown Touring Tech took Acousti-Lok on the road:
"Using the Acousti-Lok in a live performance setting every night gives me the confidence that my artist's equipment will always be safe and secure. With its sleek look and simple installation I couldn’t be happier and will be installing it on all acoustics I tech for and own."
Justin Michael Weaver guitarist for Josh Turner had this to say about our Acousti-Lok:
“The Acousti-Lok has solved the issue of plugging in an acoustic guitar in a live environment. I switch instruments rapidly throughout a show-and I can not afford to have the strap come off of the 1/4” jack mid switch and cause me to frantically fumble around before the next song. Problem solved.”
Frank Rodriguez Touring Tech for Shawn Mendes, Adam Sandler & Gwar had this to say about our Acousti-Loks:
"I love the simplicity of the Acousti-Loks! The fact that if you have an LR Baggs pickup or Taylor Expression pickup, you don’t have to modify your instruments to install them! As my artists run and jump on and off stage, the strap coming off is one less thing to worry about. It’s so great and convenient! It makes my job as a guitar tech A LOT easier and less stressful!! Thank you MusicNomad!! You nailed it!"
Chris Van Sickle emailed us about his TAYLOR® EXPRESSION SYSTEM® Acousti-Lok:
This is a FANTASTIC product! I love that it requires no modification to my new Taylor Guitar and lets me use the Schaller strap locks I've trusted for years.
Brian T., a musician, posted this about Acousti-Lok:
"Every once in a while a manufacturer creates a product that solves a problem, in this case it’s MusicNomad. They sell three versions of the Acousti-Lok. I won a Taylor version and was sold as soon as I installed it. Ordered three more the next day."
Taylor Guitars recommends Acousti-Lok as a strap lock solution for Acoustic Guitars in this blog post:
Acoustic Guitar Magazine picked our Acousti-Lok Strap Lock Adapter as one of the best guitar accessories in 2020
"If you’ve ever had your guitar slip off your strap, or just live in fear of it happening, then look for the MusicNomad Acousti-Lok. It replaces your acoustic-electric guitar’s endpin jack with a clever device that allows you to use a strap lock with a guitar fitted with an output jack/strap button."
Justin Yates, a musician emailed us about our Acousti-Lok:
"This product is amazing and is exactly what I have been looking for. I’ve been using this Acousti-Lok for over a year now and can only say good things. It is very affordable, super easily to install, and it isn’t some clunky additional attachment you have to mount to the guitar. You install it and you are done. Simple & easy. It’s also so small that it won’t cause an issue when pulling your instrument in and out of its travel case. Music Nomad saw this issue and have made a product that solves it better than any other on the market.
The Acousti-Lok is a total game changer if you are a Taylor Guitar owner who NEEDS strap locks on your guitar but can’t due to Taylor’s Battery Box.
Music Nomad’s Acousti-Lok = 10 out of 10!"
