guitar is perfect for all players. In the event the
PalmGuitar® doesn’t suit your exact needs, you may wish to
consider investigating some of these companies. Each of them
offer products that are made of engineered carbon fiber
graphite composites that may or may not provide some
features that the PalmGuitar® does not.
Why would we endorse other manufacturers that make products that
compete with the PalmGuitar®? They certainly don't pay us to
endorse them. It's more simple than that – we own products
from each of these companies and can assure you, they are
outstanding. We also share a basic philosophy - wood is
good, but graphite composites are better. Also, we believe
it’s impossible to have too many guitars. If you ever think
you've reached the point that you may have too many
guitars, get your hands on a Chapman Stick - you’ll acquire
a completely new understanding of how much more music god
intended two hands to really make.
|The Chrysalis Guitar (New Boston, NH) is the world's first
inflatable, collapsable acoustic guitar, made of highly
engineered graphite composites, featured on the cover of the
Fall 2000 Hammacher Schlemmer catalog. We own serial #0001 -
it is the coolest guitar in the world.
|| Moses Graphite, Eugene, Oregon, is the leader in graphite
composite replacement necks, fingerboards and other
products. Stephen Mosher, President of Moses, has spent
decades perfecting a graphite composite process that very
closely mimics the sonic performance of rare tonewoods, far
surpassing them in durability and stability.
|| The SoloEtte, available in nylon or steel string versions,
including a graphite neck option, is an innovative design
that helped make it the first guitar to travel into space.
The Soloette features removable bouts, allowing it to
collapse into a small package.
|| True innovation in the musical instrument field takes
centuries. Though many of us have invented different shapes
and sizes of the same instrument, history will show that
only one among us has had the genius to create a completely
new instrument, and method of creating music. Emmet Chapman
invented "the Stick" in the 70's, and it stands alone as an
astonishing method of creating music ... it's now available
|| Dr. John A Decker coined a new phrase in the world of guitar
acoustics: "carbon sound". If you're looking for an amazing
acoustic guitar, try a RainSong. Remember what it was like
to take the mufflers off of your first V8? If you ever
wondered what a vintage Martin might sould like if you "took
off the mufflers", you'll have an idea of what it's like
when you strum your first RainSong guitar. They are amazing
instruments in every regard.
||If you need a guitar that is
considerably smaller than the PalmGuitar®, check out the
NanoGuitar. It is 10 micrometers long -- about the size of a
single cell -- with six strings each about 50 nanometers, or
100 atoms, wide. Made by Cornell University researchers from
crystalline silicon, it demonstrates a new technology for a
new generation of electromechanical devices. If plucked --
by an atomic force microscope, for example -- the strings
would resonate, but at inaudible frequencies. Very cool!
