Most Popular Guitar Hanger


Trusted by over 10 million guitars around the world, our best-selling guitar wall mount remains the original guitar hanger Paul created in 1983. With a few minor improvements, the new design, known as the “Guitar Keeper”, has a deep cradle design that prevents the guitar from being improperly placed into the holder. This ultimately provides a safer hanger for your instrument, as the guitar needs to be lifted 2 inches and brought forward to be removed.

The wood blocks that our guitar holders attach to are made of authentic North American hardwood that is handcrafted by local Amish. There are four species of hardwood available (Cherry, oak, Ash and Black Walnut). Natural wood color may vary. The new Keeper design is great for guitars with single or uneven heels. The pivoting yoke allows for the guitar’s headstock to be cradled perfectly while still hanging straight. This yoke may be too narrow for some classical guitars, in which we recommend purchasing the original CC01. We simply added a “K” (for Keeper) to the end of the original product code to distinguish between the original CC01 and CC01K.

Why Trust String Swing?

Manufacturing Instrument Displays since 1987

String Swing first started in 1983, when Paul created a guitar holder for himself but the business was not founded until 1987, where they produced the first mass-distributed guitar wall mounts. In addition to the guitar hangers, String Swing has continued to grow, with more than 1,400 other stands, hanging devices and displays for all types of musical instruments. We have multiplied our product line to produce a vast range of display solutions for every product category. Since the beginning, we continue to innovate, design, and produce quality instrument hangers for any musical instrument you can think of. And if we haven’t made it, we can! It is not uncommon for retailers to call asking “Do you have this? or “Can you make that?” And quite often, we say “YES”!

String Swing has prided themselves with being a dependable solution for musicians around the world. One of the biggest benefits of hanging your instrument on the wall is that it makes it easily accessible, therefore; a vivid reminder to slow down and take the time to enjoy the hobby of music. Dave Rogers, owner of Dave’s Guitar Shop in La Crosse, Wisconsin has built a collection of instruments from his passion for music. As one of the largest independently owned guitar shops in the Midwest and over 35 years of industry experience, Dave has collected over 2,500 guitars displayed in his store, some of which value over half a million dollars. He has put 100% trust for each instrument solely on String Swing guitar mounts. We have developed a close friendship with Dave since he began using String Swing in the mid 80’s and continued to work with him throughout the years. String String is trusted globally since 1987 by over 10 million guitars.

Alaska Music & Sound, Home of the Horn Doctor is located in Anchorage Alaska. They have String Swing instrument hangers lining their space and holding all of their instruments. We were pleased to have received a call from them to hear that they experienced the amazing quality of our instrument hangers when they survived a pretty severe earthquake. The guitars swung back and forth but not one fell off our guitar hangers. Another customer in Alaska had a similar experience with the same earthquake where product was falling off of shelves and instruments were swaying back and forth but again, not one instrument fell off our guitar holders. Amazingly their security cameras caught it all on film (view here)! The way we design our cradle, the guitar sits down in it and needs to be lifted 2” and brought forward to come out. With no mechanical parts to fail we are confident in backing all of our products with a structural lifetime warranty.

Testimonials

"Just wanted to send my thanks to you after the magnitude 7.0 earthquake we had on Friday November 30, 2018. We have 5 instruments mounted on our walls including my husbands 3 saxophones, his flute, and my father’s banjo hanging in our home, all on String Swing wall mount stands. My father’s banjo is of special significance to my family as he passed away in 2008 and the family home burned down three years ago. The banjo is one of the only items we have left of his and was played nearly everyday when he was alive. While I gathered my baby daughter to evacuate our home and join the rest of my family at higher ground should we receive a tsunami warning, I had a fleeting thought of what belongings I should grab should I never see our home again. The instruments were the only thing that came to mind, but as I looked around the room, broken glass scattered on the floor from picture frames and dishes, I realized that our treasured instruments were still mounted, not even askew on their mounts. Thank you for making such an outstanding product to help us enjoy our treasured instruments each day even when the music the make is only a memory of those we loved to dearly."

-With gratitude, Kylie in Anchorage, Alaska

2018

"On August 24th 20014 at 3:20am I awoke to a 6.0 magnitude earthquake shaking my home with a violent force. My first reaction was to protect my family and wait for it to be over. The earthquake rattled every belonging in my home including the 30 vintage and custom guitars I have hanging in my home studio. Luckily for me, all 30 were hanging on String Swings and not one was lost! The only damage sustained was a small 1/16" ding on the back of a guitar where it came in contact with a studded guitar strap hanging on the wall next to it. Not bad for almost 20 seconds of 6.0 shaking. Guitars hanging were everything from Custom Shop Gibson's, Pre CBS Stratocaster's and an original late 50's Les Paul Burst. I would trust my guitars to nothing other than String Swings."

-Shaken Musician - Napa Valley

"Dear Friends at String Swing,

Just a quick note to thank you for your great products. During our recent 7.0 earthquake, we were very fortunate to have sustained very little damage to our store and our inventory, thanks in large part to how securely our String Swing instrument display hardware performed.

I have a short video taken from our store’s security cameras. Viewing it, you can see that once everything starts shaking and swinging, the instruments definitely move, but nothing falls. I tried to email the video, but the file is too large. If you wish to see it, and there is another email or way to send, please let me know and I would be happy to forward it to you. It is also posted on our store’s Face Book page.

Bravo and many thanks!"

In gratitude,
Barbara Kagerer

FAQ

Q: What is the difference between the "HDY03" yoke (-HD) and "SDY03" yoke (-K)?

A: In the picture below, the HDY03 (-HD) yoke is shown on the left & SDY03 (-K) yoke is shown on the right. Both styles will pivot to cradle the headstock of your instrument & are adjustable in width to accommodate various types of guitars & basses.

The HDY03 (-HD) yoke is our "original style" guitar cradle & is recommended for a low-profile look, such as in a home, studio or collection display setting. It also requires the use of the included keeper rings to make sure the instrument stays securely in place. This cradle works best with classical guitars. (Featured on our CC01 guitar hanger.)

The SDY03 (-K) yoke is referred to as our "guitar keeper" cradle & is recommended for store use, as well as home, studio & stage use. Its deep-cradle design prevents the guitar from being improperly placed in the hanger. This cradle works best for headstocks with uneven or single-sided heels. (Featured on our CC01K guitar keeper hanger.)

Q: What is the difference between the "W" and "N"?

A: Wide (W) means "wide body" instrument; or acoustic. Narrow (N) means "narrow body" instrument; or electric. This is pertaining to the depth of the body of the instrument. A "wide" fixture will allow more space from the wall, & will work for both acoustics & electrics. A "narrow" fixture will only work for electrics or narrow-body instruments.


Q: What is the "yoke"?

A: The yoke is the "Y" shaped part which holds the instrument. This part may be adjusted to fit the headstock of your instrument; simply squeeze the arms together, or pull them apart. We also have different yokes to accommodate different instruments. Example: Guitar, Banjo, Violin, Ukulele/Mandolin, Cello, Dulcimer, and a special yoke for a 6-7 String Bass.


Q: Is the yoke adjustable to fit my instrument?

A: All guitar yokes may be adjusted to fit any size mandolin or guitar. To adjust the yoke width, look at the area at the first fret of the instrument. Adjust the yoke so the instrument will pass freely through the opening. To widen, grasp each arm of the yoke and pull apart. To narrow, put hand around yoke arms and squeeze towards each other.


Q: Can hangers be mounted on plaster walls?

A: Yes, but only mounted to the studs. The provided drywall toggles will not work in plaster.


Q: How can you tell if you have left or right facing hangers?

A: If you are facing the wall, and the guitars are turned toward your left hand, they are left facing hangers, and vice-versa.


Q: How can you tell if you currently have 30° or 65° hangers?

A: Put a tape measure against the wall plate and measure straight out from the wall to where the yoke screws into the end of the arm. (Do not follow the bend in the arm when measuring.) The 30 degree unit will measure 6.5" straight out, and the 65 degree unit will measure 9.25".


Q: Where are your products manufactured?

A: Start to finish - in the great state of Wisconsin, USA!


Q: Where do your products ship from?

A: Ontario, WI - United States


Q: Can I get hangers like a music store has to use on the wall in my home?

A: Yes, all of our hangers are manufactured in 4 wall types; slatwall, flat wall, gridwall, and pegboard. We also manufacture three convenient types of slatwall rail systems, so you can have all the versatility of a store right in your own home!


Q: Will your guitar hanger work for most other types of instruments?

A: It will hang many other types of instrument, but we make specific yokes/cradles for almost every type of instrument, and we recommend using the yoke/cradle that is made for use the type of instrument that you would like to display.


Q: Do your slatwall hangers secure to the slatwall system that I am using?

A: Yes! We have incorporated a new type of locking system that is easier to use. It's stock number is: "CLIP" if you wish to look it up in our keyword search. This slatwall clip is sent along with EVERY slatwall hanger that is purchased.


Q: Should I hang an instrument with an asymmetric headstock in a String Swing hanger?

A: Yes! The yoke is designed to pivot so that no matter what type of headstock design your instrument has, the hanger will keep the instrument completely vertical. We recommend turning the yoke all the way into the fixture and giving it a 1/2 turn back out, so it can freely pivot to adjust to the instrument's headstock style.


Q: Do your hangers and stands contain latex?

A: No. We have had our product ingredients tested to find out if any of them contain latex, and they do not.


Q: Are your products safe to use for guitars with a nitrocellulose lacquer finish?

A: Our material will not eat into the nitro of your guitar like most foams and rubbers do. Fender, Gibson, and Martin, all use our products in their showrooms, and for trade shows on their standard and high nitro finished guitars. However, there are some things that are out of our control that prevent us from putting an unconditional guarantee that no marking will ever occur.

1. If an issue does arise there is no definite way for us to tell if the marks were caused by our products or if they were from a previously used product from another manufacturer.  
2. If you have used a guitar polish, be sure it is wiped off before you use our products. There is conflicting information on the internet as to whether polish is ever necessary or not. Also, along these same lines, do not use any chemical cleaners on our padding material. Water is fine if needed.
3. Guitars being stored in any sunlight can be a big problem, regardless of what material is being used in resting the guitar.

4. Nitro finish remains partially a liquid for its lifetime, so extended periods of time any significant pressure on the finish can result in pressure marks almost like a smear. This is worsened if the guitar was not given proper cure time when the finished was applied.

All of this being said we still have the safest material on the market for a nitro finished guitar and thousands of people trust hanging them every day. Also, if you have a nitro white Gibson, or Epiphone we have white yokes that we recommend for these extremely color sensitive finishes. If you decide to choose our products to display your guitars, for your peace of mind, we suggest that you check your guitars occasionally to be assured of their safety.


Q: I read a label on your products warning me I may be exposed me to harmful chemicals, such as titanium dioxide, are you saying that this product is not safe to use?

A: We recently had all the materials tested on our hangers and there is no concern of anything toxic coming from the hangers. We had to put the warning labels on our products until we had the results come through.


Q: On the MSTH, is the part that is attached to the back of the iPad magnetic or does it permanently attached by adhesive? Additionally, how think is the part on the back of the iPad?

A: The disc is steel-encased in an injection molded plastic ring and has to be attached with an adhesive to the tablet/iPad. The magnetic piece, attached to the end of the arm of the MSTH, is the piece that is secured to a mic/music stand. So, the magnet is only against the steel disc while in use. This set up has been tested out on a large iPad Pro for over two years, with no issues. The steel disc is 2.25 inches in diameter and .15 inches tall. It fits fine under a few brands we have tested, like Logitech. We cannot guarantee it will fit with any case, but many do work.


Q: In the pictures for the CC151 series, the guitar body is the left, and the neck to the right. Is there a hanger that will accommodate the opposite direction?

A: Yes, it can also face the other direction. You would just have to loosen the bolt that attaches the mounting plate to the flat fixture bar. Then spin the bar to the other direction. The yokes that cradle the instrument are also screwed onto the bar so they can then be turned to the position needed.


Q: Is there a way to remove the adhesive coupler from the back of an iPad? 

A: To remove a coupler from a tablet/iPad: warm coupler up with a hair dryer and then take dental floss and run it under the coupler to remove. The same coupler cannot be reused, but you can buy an additional coupler at this link: https://www.stringswing.com/product/msth-c-mic-stand-magnetic-tablet-holder-coupler.


Q: When mounting a SW14 into brick, or wood wall studs, how many guitars can safely be mounted on CC03RL hangers?

A: If it is mounted correctly into the brick, the slatwall rail will hold more weight than the amount of guitars will ever weigh. We usually suggest 50 lbs per mounting point, or set of screws into the solid surface, studs, or brick. So, if using 3 or 4 mounting points on a 4 foot section, the rail would hold 150-200 lbs.
