Who we are
Sound-unsound.com is part of Sablicon Media. It is a free resource for people who want to learn how to play a musical instrument or who might need to purchase an accessory for it. Our team is composed of sound engineers and musicians, and all of our articles are created based on our experts’ recommendations.
What is our goal? We aim to help people who want to study music production or who want to learn how to play an instrument to find the right information they need. Whether that means tips on getting the right violin bow, synthesizer keyboard, or looper pedal, you’ll find that our posts are always consumer-driven and put your needs first.
What we do
We have embraced the concept of Simplexity as much as we can. We’re very much aware of the fact that the terminology associated with music playing or music production can be intimidating. We avoid using overly complicated terms, and we try to simplify the complexity and jargon that many brands utilize in their marketing materials. We strive to help music aficionados and newbies make the best buying decision so that they can focus on their experience instead of having to deal with decision fatigue or confusing information.
Our mission is to provide buying advice to anyone who is interested in becoming a musician, whether a professional or an amateur. On our site, we have tackled a variety of topics in the past. Ranging from why the bass guitar is an essential instrument in a band to getting the perfect guitar amplifier.
Since we believe that the best advice is always free, that’s what we try to do. And that is how our community has grown into a place where aspiring musicians can research practice tips, music theory, how to’s, and other reading materials about music.
Our research explained
Our team is composed of several musicians and sound engineers with different backgrounds and experiences. All of the articles that we publish on the site are created based on our experts’ recommendations as they know best what challenges they have had to face in the past. They review the topics that we have in line for the editorial calendar, and they understand and share the areas we should focus on even before beginning the research process.
They correlate their own needs (and those of prospective buyers) with the products that are currently available. Once their drafts are checked by our editors, the articles are posted. That is how we manage to have several pieces of content published every month.
We care about bringing you accurate information so that you can improve your skills and experience no matter what music field you’re interested in.
