FARMINGDALE, New York – D’Addario Accessories and Nita Strauss are pleased to announce the release of the Hurricane Kit, a guitar maintenance kit that includes everything Nita uses to keep her guitars in fighting shape. 

The items inside ensure every guitarist can do the same –clean, maintain, tune, and restring your axe using the same products that travel with Nita to hundreds of gigs a year.

Alongside the launch of the kit, D’Addario is hosting a contest from November 5 to November 23, 2020. The grand prize winner will receive, an Ibanez JIVA Jr. Nita Strauss Signature guitar, a Marshall Cope 50 Amplifier, a Hurricane Kit and access to Nita’s on-line guitar school (https://www.iwanttoplayguitar.com).


“When Nita came to us with the idea of doing a guitar maintenance kit, it was a no brainer,” said Jeffrey Kaye, D’Addario’s Global Director of Artist Marketing.  “She is not only one of the most highly regarded players in the world, but one of the most important artists we work with.”

“The Hurricane kit was born out of total necessity as a touring musician,” Nita Strauss said. “I was so tired of rummaging around in a gig bag or backpack for the tool I needed at the moment I needed it. With this kit, all the touring guitarist’s essential tools are finally in one convenient place!”

Nita Strauss, a Guitar World anointed Guitarist of the Decade, has become a force to be reckoned with in the music world. Most fans will recognize Nita as Alice Cooper’s touring guitarist of the past five years, and 2019’s debut solo record “Controlled Chaos,” which landed her on the top of the Billboard Top New Artist chart.
