One of the earliest guitar manufacturers in Japan, Guyatone began production in 1933. According to Mr. Hiroyuki Noguchi, editor of Japan’s Guitar Magazine, "Matsuki Seisakujo" (松木製作所) was founded by a cabinet maker’s apprentice Mr. Mitsuo Matsuki and friend Mr. Atsuo Kaneko, who later became a famous player of Hawaiian and Spanish style guitars as well as help with the formation of the great Teisco in 1946.
Matsuki had been enrolled in electronics classes, studying nights after his cabinetry apprentice job. Hawaiian music becoming increasingly popular at the time led Mr. Kaneko to inquire to his friend Matsuki about building an electric Hawaiian guitar using his wood working and electronics skills. In the late 1930s the "Matsuki Joiner" company ("Matsuki Seisakujo" in Japanese) was formed producing and selling mostly American style (Rickenbacker style) guitars under the Guya name.
In 1940 Matsuki was drafted into the war between China and Japan and production halted for several years. After returning home, Matsuki formed his own company, "Matsuki Denki Onkyo Kenkyujo" (松木電気音響研究所), translated means: "Matsuki Electric Sound Laboratory.
USATO! PEDALE CHITARRA MICRO DIGITAL DELAY MD3 GUYATONE
Perfection in a compact digital delay. Just what is so great about the Guyatone MD-3? Quite simply, the Micro Digital Delay Pedal offers the most authentic note reproduction of any delay device available, period. Notes come back exactly as you played them: Not rounder, harsher, warmer, colder, or altered in any manner whatsoever. If you've ever played a tape echo, you know that their tone is not dark sounding like some people claim, but actually quite bright and clear. The MD-3 gives the user the crispness and clarity of a tape echo combined with the longer delay time of a digital device, while its controls react like an analog unit. 30-2600 milliseconds of delay time are available; more than enough to create an entire range of classic delay effects from rockabilly slapback to arena-rock washes of excess and everything in between. At higher feedback setting (above 3 o'clock) the MD-3 will self-oscillate like an analog delay, creating cacophonous cascades of repeats, UFO-landings, ray guns, and other bizarre sound effects. At lower feedback settings (around 2 o'clock) the MD-3 digital effects pedal can be used for multi-layering of short parts, creating beautiful, ethereal soundscapes that slowly fade into infinity. In addition, the MD-3 Delay has a lower current draw than other digital units, which means you'll spend less time changing batteries and more time playing!
