  • Kylee Swenson
    "Too many times I’ve stepped onstage wondering... if the battery’s going to run out in the middle of a set. With the Batt-O-Meter, I can put my fears to rest and know exactly how much time I’ve got left."
    - Kylee Swenson, Loquat singer/guitarist and EQ Magazine editor

  • Marc Muller
    "The first night I used it was at the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank NJ. Someone from the house sound company asked what I was doing with the little orange box. When I showed them the Batt-O-Meter they asked if they could borrow and came back 15 minutes later thanking me for just saving them $30 in unnecessary battery replacements for their gear."
    - Marc Muller, guitarist for Shania Twain
  • Craig McFarland
    "After using Batt-O-Meter on my 15 Active Basses and 23 stomp boxes, it hit me - studio or stage, Batt-O-Meter is going with me. I’m in!"
    - Craig McFarland, Bassist for Madame Blavatsky Overdrive, M.I.R.V, Fungo Mungo, & Newborn Addicts
  • Dave Murphy
    "Batt-O-Meter is becoming indispensable when I’m on-the-road and in the studio. It’s small, portable and super easy...what a great tool!"
    - Dave Murphy, guitarist
  • Barry Rudolph
    "I've seen a lot gadgets come down the pike but none as universally useful as the Batt-O-Meter. A 'must-have,' it will become as ubiquitous as a screwdriver for musicians, electronic techs, computer whizzes or anybody who depends on a healthy battery."
    - Barry Rudolph, contributing editor & writer for MIX Magazine, Music Connection Magazine, & prosoundweb.com
  • Vance Galloway
    "It seems like a simple little gadget - but this is going to end up being one of those 'How did I possibly live without this' devices right away..."
    - Vance Galloway, sound designer & owner of AdVanced Media LLC
  • Michael Wagener
    "Just had a chance to check this unit out. It's a great time saver, especially when you have a lot of guitars with batteries and a lot of pedals. It gives you an accurate reading of the voltage (which varies greatly between batteries even in the same batch) and the time remaining until empty, so you can be prepared for a session and not interrupt the creative process by having to change batteries in the middle of it. Great little box. Very well built."
    - Michael Wagener, music producer, mixer, and engineer of Motley Crue & Metallica
  • Winston Roye
    "Batt-O-Meter is awesome! I use a pedalboard that is ONLY powered with batteries and Batt-O-Meter is helping out a lot. I test each battery, and the results are very consistent each time. I'm changing batteries a LOT less, now that I know what's going inside them."
    - Winston Roye, bassist for Rock of Ages - The Musical, Jewel, Lauren Hill
  • Vinnie Zummo
    "You want to know about the Batt-O-Meter? You plug it in, and it works quickly and efficiently. What more can you ask for? New gear is often just so much hype with no substance, but this thing is for real. It's a mega time and performance saver."
    - Vinnie Zummo, artist, producer, and former guitarist for Joe Jackson
  • Joe Gore
    "The Batt-O-Meter is an indispensable gig-bag and workbench gizmo. Like many players, I've tried to minimize battery use for eco reasons, mounting my stompboxes on AC-powered pedalboards. But I still need to use battery-powered pedals to audition or alter sounds while recording and rehearsing. Thanks to the Batt-O-Meter, I now recycle no battery before its time. And if you're addicted to those über-cool boutique and DIY stompboxes (you know, the ones without quick-access battery compartments), that means more playing and less screwdriver-twirling. Your wrist will thank you!"
    - Joe Gore, composer, music journalist, and musician (Tom Waits, Tracy Chapman, PJ Harvey, Eels)
  • Thad Cranford
    "I must say that this is one amazing piece of gear, it has already proved to be one of the most important tools in my toolkit. It's already saved me much time and money. Being able to check my batteries without having to remove them from the guitars and pedals saves me a lot of time, and I don't have to guess and hope that I can make it through the set without a failure. This is an excellent piece of equipment and I would recommend the Batt-O-Meter to all professional techs and musicians. This is one of those must have pieces of gear and I am proud to endorse it. Thank You!"
    - Thad Cranford, Guitar Tech for Lillian Axe, New Orleans, Black Crowes, R.E.M., Alice Cooper, & Faith No More
  • Ryan Gorman
    "The Batt-O-Meter is a godsend to have on the road and in studio. It will let you allocate your time elsewhere to things that need focus instead of spending an hour checking and changing batteries everyday. It will also save you money by not throwing away good batteries because of the uncertainty of knowing how long they will last. It's a time saver, a money saver, a headache saver, and it's not leaving my toolbox any time soon!"
    - Ryan Gorman, Sound Engineer for The Deftones, Saliva, & Black Stone Cherry
  • Noel Webb
    "I have to have a full capacity battery in my electric violins. Batt-O-Meter keeps me relaxed and able to do my job; which is to play jazz violin, not worry about my batteries"
    - Noel Webb, Electric Violinist and Owner of Spider Cues Music Library
  • Jeffrey Zeigler
    "I am completely blown away by the K-Bow. As a controller and sound modulator, this bow is capable of doing a multitude of things, and it is all packaged in a very rugged and user friendly interface thus enabling the user to be infinitely creative. The bow itself has the feel and balance of a finer bow, and the emitter attaches below the finger board in a completely noninvasive fashion. One literally has the power to control and manipulate sound at their finger tips with virtually no disruption to the technical act of playing their instrument. It really is the coolest thing that I have ever seen."
    - Jeffrey Zeigler, Cellist, Kronos Quartet
  • Jon Rose
    "In recent times, there has been an explosion of innovation in the world of digital sound, most of which has passed the violin bow by... until now. The capacity of the new K-Bow has to be heard to be believed. The personal and subtle characteristics of each bow and performer are measured by the latest in sensor technologies including a Force sensing resistor, Infra Red sensor and Antenna, and accelerometers. And the whole thing is wireless, utilizing an improved Bluetooth transmission system. A cooler bunch of relevant technology on a bow there is not. I've been involved with interactive bow experiments and prototypes since 1987, and this, let me tell you, this is it! Welcome string players to the 21st century."
    - Jon Rose, Hyperstring Project
  • Dr. Margaret Schedel
    "As a cellist and computer musician, I have been thrilled with the k-bow. I find it the most intuitive and responsive controller I have ever used. It allows me to employ all my years of classical music training to interface in a meaningful way with multiple software packages."
    - Dr. Margaret Schedel, Assistant Professor at Stony Brook University & musical director for Kinesthetech Sense
  • Richard Boulanger
    "For the composer and performer, the K-bow unlocks vast new creative possibilities. And it's all magic. The wireless electronic sensors and triggers are totally hidden and built in to this incredibly 'intelligent', beautifully and perfectly balanced and weighted bow. They are transparent to the user and the audience. String players love the fact that it feels right, it plays right and that there are no encumbrances. It's just a great bow!"
    - Richard Boulanger, Professor at Berklee College of Music

  • Marielle Jakobsons
    "The most expressive modulation source in my rig is the K-Bow. Its seamless integration allows me to fluidly control effects, loops, and oscillators while I play the violin."
