Both raised $1M+ in pre-orders, and the INSTRUMENT 1 was named a TIME Best Invention of the Year and a NAMM Best in Show. We are inspired by our incredible community of creators, relying on their insights and feedback as we evolve our products and create new ones.

He holds a Ph.D. in Sound Studies from Virginia Tech, has toured the country as a multi-instrumentalist, taught as a professor of sociology, and consulted globally on consumer electronics.
