Welcome to the main landing page of THE FUTURE OF GEAR.
What is The Future of Gear?
The Future of Gear is a documentary where we will uncover the many facets of the music industry piece by piece. It was born out of a conversation between Marc Johnson (MJ) and I (TTK). After many late night calls, MJ was convinced that there was one topic that would be most in sync with everything that we stand for here at TheToneKing.com and The Future of Gear was born.
Knowing that this was a big endeavor, and that we wanted to do it right, we started crowdfunding the project. The deal was, if you donate, you got a copy of The Future of Gear.
Something about that didn’t sit well with us, though.
We realized the value of putting this series of videos together would continue our goal of making a mark in the music industry. We didn’t want to let dollars dictate our interest, our plans, or our passion. So, after many more late night phone calls, every dime that was collected was returned and the fundraiser was cancelled.
In the year since this idea was born, we’ve been working hard on this project while keeping everything going on TheToneKing.com. Now, the first episode of The Future of Gear is up. Of course, it doesn’t stop there. We’re hard at work at the next episode, and we will keep going until every corner of the guitar gear industry is covered.
