PrimeVibe -Guitar Seasoning
PrimeVibe Instrument Seasoning Device. If you have ever playing an old guitar you know that a well played guitar seems to have a better feel and sometimes tone. Not to say that all old guitars play or sound well! So there is always someone out there that will try to help us gain this wondrous tone without having to wait 40 years. Enter PrimeVibe. PrimeVibe is a tool that seasons your guitar when you attach it's two transducers onto the body of the guitar for a duration usually greater than 100 hours. When attached you will notice a gentle vibration of the instrument. The PrimeVibe reminds me of the ToneRite. This is a link to an article I wrote about the ToneRite.
Attaching a quantitative analyzable value to the final tone results of these tools subjective to the listeners ear. Do the tools work? Yes. Do these tools improve tone? Only you can determine if the guitar tone has improved because it is a subjective sound description. Meanwhile, I'll stick to buying well made instruments, trusting time, and my ear. Sure is fun testing though!
