In 1998, D'Addario & Company, Inc. acquired the Planet Waves line and it joined D'Addario's world-renowned family of musical instrument accessory brands. D'Addario envisioned the line as more than just accessories for guitarists, but for musicians as a whole. A few years make quite a difference when a company becomes part of the D'Addario family. D'Addario's ingenuity and common-sense approach to Planet Waves has led to more than 400% growth, with a multitude of Planet Waves' products covered by (or in application for) patents. We're making waves all over the world. Catch one.
