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 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 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.

  1. Wow, Great article and ponder first off! It’s much like the Walmart/Amazon effect on small brick and mortar. But it also has a negative effect too, and we as consumers must consider these things in everything we buy! like you said, put our money where it serves the most desired future best.

  2. Academic writers with our service will do it for you gladly. Order now and see the advantages in the future.

  3. I am searching for a stereo sound framework for music, and 7.1 framework for home theater. So far it appears a 2.0 stereo with stereo speakers are best for music and 7.1 and theater speakers for films, TV and so forth. I considered playing music through a 7.1 set up, however it doesn’t appear to be useful for music. I was simply wanting to keep away from 2 separate collectors. Then again this the right set up?

    I wish PRS had a advetising link on the top or right side of your website TK . They make Great guitars and amps .

    To my good friend TTK, as well as Marc Johnson…This is without a doubt on what I think could be a scratch on the surface of what is going on behind the scenes in this industry that we love so much.

    I look forward to every and all episodes to come from here on.
    Congrats for taking on your own challenge and getting this info out there for many to see and hear.
