Explore the world of the innovators and craftspeople who help shape the music instruments and equipment on which we all depend. Our Gear Pioneer interviews get up close and personal with some of the most important music industry figures. Learn about what makes them tick and how they arrived at the innovations that have helped transform the way we perform and record music. The Makers interviews are in-depth profiles of the artisans from whose hands and minds come the instruments that define their categories. From master luthiers to brilliant technicians, we ask the questions that bring to life their quest to help musicians make better music.
