Kim’s concert guitars were made by Thomas Humphrey in his Millenium design, built in 1990 and 2003.
For an electric nylon sound, Kim plays a custom designed “John Knowles Thinline” guitar by Kirk Sand.
In 2010, Kim officially became a D’Addario Artist after playing these strings exclusively since year two of her guitar study.
“D’Addario strings have the warm, clear, consistent sound that allow me to be expressive with a full range of tone colors.” – Kim Perlak, A D’Addario Fretted player since 1990.
Specifically, Kim records and performs with EXP46 Coated, Hard Tension strings.
