I make a Youtube Guitar Gear Video and then give YOU the gear when I'm done.
It's that simple.
I'll be making one guitar video per month. For every $1 pledged to help me acquire the gear, your name goes into a drawing, and the when the video is complete,
I will personally send the gear to someone.
That's it. You help support me making videos, when I finish the gear could be yours.
And.... the more you choose to pledge, the better your chances of the gear being yours.
$1 = 1 chance, $10 = ten chances, $100 = 100 chances, etc.

Please note, If we initially don't reach the first pledge goal, it will carry over to the next month until reached. Once the initial goal is reached, as long the pledge level is maintained, it will continue each month with new gear demos in a similar price range until the next level is achieved. So the more supporters we have, the better the gear will be.
Please understand though that this Patreon campaign isn't purely meant to be a giveaway, it's also about you my Patrons supporting quality Youtube Gear Demos. Youtube is filled with crappy guitar demos, or high quality paid advertisements by manufactures that may not actually capture the gear as used in the real world. If you've been a fan of Youtube channel the last five you years you know I only record videos in HD, using professional editing software with audio captured with studio microphones through real preamps and edited in a DAW. I have a degree in Audio Engineering, and strive to give you the best quality demos I can.
A note about the Goal and the price points. (Why are they so much higher than retail costs?)
- I am not a retailer, it's just me. The goals are set at those amounts to take into account how much it costs to purchase the items, tax, shipping, Credit Card processing fees, Patreon's cut (which can be as much as $.32 per $1), shipping costs to mail the gear to the supporter, insurance for higher priced items, as well as any additional unexpected overhead costs. Beyond that, my ultimate goal is to try and do this full time. The more support I get from you means the more time and money I can invest into giving back to you. Both in video content, and in physical gear. Sure those $5000-$10,000 goals seem lofty, but if you help me reach that plateau, not only does it mean I can do this full time, but it also means I can give away a high end guitar or amp every single month.
