We only get one planet. Be good stewards of this gift, and leave as small a footprint as possible on it. Our ultimate goal is to be a zero waste company. That’s a tall order, but it’s a great design challenge. In the short term, we’re eliminating all PVC (polyvinyl chloride) materials from our products as it has a toxic lifecycle. We also design animal-free products. This is because factory farming methods are resource-intensive and unkind, in our opinion. If you have any suggestions or feedback for us regarding our environmental impact we’d love to hear from you.
Our corporate culture consists of an electric guitar, a bass, and a 5-piece drum kit. The best ideas always follow a great jam session. Go play.
Different perspectives. Different ideas. Different products. Different company. (Yes, we’re MAC people).
We like nice stuff. Things that are intelligently designed, beautifully engineered and built extremely well are both hard to resist and hard to put down. We like to make products like that.
Corporations tend to act weird, so we like to act human. To us this means being kind, honest, ambitious, humble, having a sense of humor, trying to be perfect, but when we make mistakes (like humans do), apologizing.
Local schools. Local bands. Local taco shops. Local artists. Local churches. Local parks. We like to support these things.
Elementary school music teachers rock - we remember ours (shout out to Mrs. Broadt). Many underfunded schools are canceling their music programs. Don't let them! Buy a candy bar from the neighborhood band kid. Donate an instrument to a local music department. Or better yet, teach music at an elementary school.
