This week I finally finished, (well, almost) our new website for Geiger Acoustic Devices with all new products - for banjos, guitars, mandolins, fiddles and more. (It still lacks a couple of product descriptions and the Pay Pal "Buy Now Buttons" but the site is 95% or more complete.)
Here is the URL of the site, which is the same as before: http://www.geigeracousticdevices.com
I hope that you find every part of it interesting. I've tried to make it an educational resource related to sound surface waves and how we use them, as well as a sales tool for selling our products.
The web site is an entire re-do of the earlier website and the reason is that this past summer we discovered a new way to create amplified high frequency audible sound from sound surface waves using a very small paper sound emitter which looked like a triangle with inward curving sides. This meant that we could greatly amplify harmonics. And that meant that we could improve the sound quality of all notes played on almost any musical instrument - including the instrument's lowest notes. And that meant that everything that we had done up until that time - all of our products - were suddenly inferior and had to be scrapped. So we scrapped everything. It was our "Paper Revolution of 2009". You can read how it all came about in the latest Blog entry on the Blog page of the new website. I think you'll find that Blog entry, written today, interesting.
If you are interested in how things work I know that you will find the site fascinating. Because we make every effort to explain how our products work, mostly in two pages on "Theory" showing not only our present products (the results of the "Paper Revolution of 2009") but earlier products going all the way back to our first tone amp for a guitar. This history of our toil and trouble is included for educational purposes because want to describe our mistakes and our reasoning processes to those who are either interested or work in the field. Besides, explaining what we learned and how we learned it is a heck of a lot more important and worthy a goal than selling our devices, which only make musicians happy - not smarter.
Enjoy the new site. Any comments and/or suggestions that you care to make will be appreciated.
