Manufacturing the Magnet
The Magnet is our custom-designed mount for using smartphones to film picking technique.
It’s our most essential tool for understanding picking technique, but right now it only exists as a prototype. We’d love to manufacture these on a larger scale, but first we need to get a sense of how many of you out there would even want something like this. The upfront costs are high, and we can’t proceed without a critical mass of demand.
If we’re able to manufacture these, would you buy one? Help us out by answering in the poll below!
Features of the Magnet
- Best way to get a close-up, slow-mo look at picking technique to better understand how these movements actually work

- Fits both 6 and 7 string guitars — and mandolin with adaptor pads
- GoPro adaptor can allow simultaneous filming of both hands
- Needs no computer — review slow-motion videos directly on the phone
