     Bitcrusher is innovating electric guitar technology with our platform product; the Bitcrusher. We are bringing the influence of technology in guitars to greater lengths to add value for guitar makers and produce boundless creative opportunities for the user. The Bitcrusher is a low-profile circuit board that comprises all elements needed to operate an electric guitar while incorporating digital technology that expands the functionality of the instrument.

     Unlike other guitar electronics, our patent pending system can be mounted to a flat, un-routed surface. The guitar manufacturer receives an assembled board, pre-loaded with effects that can be adhered directly to a flat, un-routed instrument with a clip, screws or adhesive. No assembly required. This represents a complete electronics solution for the guitar manufacturer, relieving them of sourcing different parts and assembling them in house. Further, the Bitcrusher has built-in effects modules that can be configured by the player, something that guitar companies have previously been unable to provide on their instruments.

     The effects and functionality the user wants can be configured in the app or website and uploaded to the guitar. Disconnect from the computer and the guitar is configured and ready to play. What follows from this is our ecommerce business. Bitcrusher will have a developer environment where custom effects modules can be programmed and distributed on our ecommerce platform. Developers can code effects for Bitcrusher and sell them to other users on our exclusive online store. This environment will generate unlimited new effects that are driven by the demands of the market.
