There are many more ways to learn instruments these days than to just pick it up and practice for years and Loog are back with some unique guitars for aspiring guitar heroes.
Loog guitars are recreating the guitar so that kids as young as 3 can start playing and hone their skills to build up to the six stringed sword they’ll eventually wield. With a new Kickstarter project they’re hoping to give fledgling axe-wielders a new way to get started.
The Loog guitars start at a miniature 3 stringed version for kids 3 and up. The guitars are sized so that younger players can handle the instrument without it towering over them, allowing them to scale up as they grow themselves.
Next in line is the medium sized 3-stringer for 8 year olds and older. Then it eventually moves up to the Loog Pro VI, the company’s only 6 string version aimed at teenagers as young as 12.
The guitars come with a built-in amplifier and speaker so there’s no plug in required. Kids can start jamming out and learning the ropes wherever they are thanks to it’s wireless playability.
Loog have created a companion app to really help kids get on their way with unique and fun learning tools. Flashcards teach chords, educational games make learning fun, a play-along songbook gets them playing along with songs using tutorials to guide them through, and more. There’s even an augmented reality feature that uses the selfie camera to guide kids.
The Loog Mini Electric Guitar is available for $99 on Kickstarter, offering the guitar aimed at ages 3+ as well as chord flashcards and access to the full app. It’s then $149 for the Pro and then $199 for the the six stringed Pro VI.
