SITHU AYE Takes You To Tone School Feat. SCIENCE

What is “tone”? How do we get better tone? Is it something in the wood of the guitar or just the pickups? Can it come from your fingers? Tone chasers have been debating these questions since the dawn of the electric guitar and the results have been… less than fruitful.

Scottish guitar nerd and anime sweetheart Sithu Aye did some investigating and used the magic of science to finally answer these questions. And the answer is? Yes. To everyone. You’re all right!

Joking aside, there is a ton of science here and you’ll definitely learn loads about your rig and instrument.
