Hard Stuff Box is a music collective that loves and cares about Top Music Gear, great Booze and Art in general.
Tone is an every day Quest and each part of your signal path can be a challenge.
Some of us did succeed, others have failed or keep digging, but we all agree it was worth it !
As Gear Freaks, we imagine and design sonic solutions, find partners and spend time in fine-tuning sessions with the aim to complete our tone quests.
This group of music gear freaks has various profiles such as Pro & Amateur Musicians, Pedals, Guitars & Amps Builders, Music Store owners & sellers, DIY tweakers, Gear Enthusiasts – GAS addicted, NOS Tubes Freaks, corksniffers, … but first of all we are all epicurean
Our gear talks quickly became some kind of brainstormings. Everyone has his own opinion on what an epic music gear/solution is : lots of ideas come through all the time.
We put all our ideas togheter, shake it twice -to make it short-and BAM : there is a new project in da box !
Our different projects allow us to have a “builder point-of-view” that gives us a better understanding on the music gear industry. The time we spend on Research and Development is learningful as well… and in the end : we get exactly what we wanted.
Even if we fine-tune our Custom Works for us, we try to make it perfect for the rest of the world as well.
That means considering every situations the gear could be used for and find the good balance to make it sounds perfect in every situation.
All the R&D processes are probably the most interesting and fun part of the work. That’s why we do all this.
To swap tubes and hear tonal improvements, to test a variety of high quality speakers to find the best matches, putting the right pickups in the right guitar, designing killing-eyes craft/artworks, trying to get the Sonic Mojo in every the product we’re working on, … : that’s our way to live our gear addiction.
