Music Gear – Here's How You Can Make a Difference
Now you have an opportunity to help shape the future of music
by Dendy Jarrett
Have you ever successfully modified a piece of music gear because you couldn't believe that the manufacturer hadn't initially designed it that way? Or wondered why no company is making music equipment that you think is necessary? Or seen a device that made you wonder, "What were they thinking?"
Companies need real feedback from real musicians. Something that seems like a good idea in the lab may not play out that well in live performance. And when a product is in the planning stages, overlooking one key feature could mean the difference between success and failure.
Because Harmony Central is a community full of great musicians who are inspired to make better music, we’ve created the Harmony Central Music Research Panel. Last summer, we sent out a survey to test the concept of creating a panel of musicians that ranged in age, experience level, and represented a wide variety of demographics. We found that people were indeed very interested in having their voices heard.
So now we're taking it to the next level: Harmony Central is looking for musicians of all types and talents to participate in upcoming research studies.
Best of all, it's easy to help alter the future of music gear. Click the link below to register for the Harmony Central Music Research Panel and answer a couple brief questions in the invite request. We absolutely will not spam you and will contact you only to determine if you qualify for an upcoming study's requirements.
