Our beginnings

When Al started building guitars nearly 25 years ago, he was seeking to improve the instrument. To elevate the construction and materials beyond the standards set by the rest of the industry. Having achieved that, as evidenced by the dozens of professional musicians who have come to swear by their Farnell guitars and basses, it's time to look beyond the the instrument, and start looking at the artists who play them. Artists like yourself. How can we serve you better?

The road ahead

After talking to a number of independent working musicians, it's become clear that we need do business differently than the rest of the industry as well. So we're going to start by relaunching our operation in the direction you tell us. We're utilizing crowdfunding to directly engage our audience, and let their voices guide us. We'll be closely working with and learning from independent musicians how to best serve you.

We'd also like to create an artists spotlight where, each month, we can give the front page of our site to one of the many talented individuals making music with our products. We want to support you as an artist in every way possible. If we can help someone new discover your music, we think that's great.

What we're not

We aren't looking to ship a million units to Guitar Center or Musician's friend. We won't be scouting for big-name endorsements from signed artists. We aren't looking to put a cheap sweatshop-built guitar under the bed of every kid who begs loud enough.

Acquiring a Farnell musical instrument

We want to make getting your hands on one of our guitars as easy as possible. This means we are going to go out of our way to accommodate you, regardless of whether you're purchasing one of our high quality midrange instruments, or a tricked out custom piece. We know life as a performer isn't easy. This is why we will be working to offer creative ways to finance your new gear, as well as protecting it with the best warranties in the industry. Farnell makes instruments you'll own for life.

Since crowdfunding was part of our new start, we want to bring the same advantages to you. Imagine being able to set up a page where you can direct your fans, and they can contribute directly to your next purchase. You can create a video explaining how your new instrument will help you create new music for them to enjoy. Additionally, we will offer a factory-direct financing program where you can have your new guitar or bass delivered with a small down payment and begin enjoying it while you pay it off over time.

The takeaway...

Farnell Music Technology is dedicated first and foremost to serving the working musician as completely as possible. We will do this by providing convenient & creative financing options, generous warranty coverage, and innovative instruments. We will remain committed to pushing technological boundaries and delivering the best sounding, best playing, longest lasting, and most environmentally conscious instruments in the industry.

Let's make music together.
