Welcome to the very first blog from Ayer Guitar!
Allow me to introduce myself: My name is Andrew and I am addicted to guitars. Old, new, cheap, expensive, good and bad, noise machines, stringed instruments, old tube amps, whatever it may be it is clear: I can’t get enough. I’m tying to find the ever elusive perfect “tone.” I have a feeling I may not be alone in this journey.
Guitars are pure fun for me. I love the logistics of what makes a guitar. The neck profile, pickups, what type of wood makes each parts, what year it’s from, where it’s made, etc. etc. But with whatever guitar is in my hands, that is just the beginning of what sounds that could possibly be created. Enter in the guitar pedal world. There are countless options for any type of effect you can think of, and even more opinions and thoughts on each pedal and subject. And here is where I would like to throw my hat into the ring.
This website came to fruition at my office job one day when I realized I needed a creative outlet. Sure I play guitar live every weekend and have been playing for years, but I seldom get to talk and show the nitty gritty aspects of what makes playing electric guitar so much fun. So I teamed up with my older brother Michael to help me with this project. A fellow musician himself, he understands the obsession of tone. Using his talents of videography and my sufficiency at playing guitar, Ayer Guitar was born. This website will be the channel in which I can completely nerd out on anything guitar related.
In this on-going blog I will go down the rabbit trail of tone. I will share tone tips, reviews, musings, ideas, theories, personal revelations, and anything and everything that has to do with music and tone.
In the meantime, please have a look at one of our videos or send us a message! I enjoy meeting people and would love to hear any tips, reviews, and ideas on music/anything. Thank you for stopping by and hope to see you soon.
P.S: Ayer is pronounced like “air.” So this “Ayer Guitar” thing works on more than one level. Like playing air guitar, guitar is the air I breathe… wait I think you get it.
