HooGie the touring tech for Shinedown had to say about our Premium Truss Rod Wrenches

Reliable and safe, the Premium Truss Rods are great. I wouldn’t expect anything less from MusicNomad.

Diego the touring tech for Underøath, Chromeo & FEVER333 had to say about our Premium Guitar Tech Set:

I absolutely love this set! It's everything I need to do a setup and then some. This is in my desert island toolset for sure. All the allen wrench sizes and screwdriver types I need with no fluff like most of us techs are use to having in our workboxes, just what we absolutely need to use on a guitar-to-guitar basis. The Octopus 8-in-1 tool is an absolute gamechanger for me. No longer having to have a huge amount of workbox real estate crowded by stand alone tools is a massive benefit to me when I need to find something quickly. The carrying case is well laid out, beautiful, and rock solid for touring. The included Spanner Wrench is incredible, again saving me space in my fly workbox that is always at a premium, while allowing me to maximize what work I can do!

Justin Trotta the touring tech for The Used & Miguel had to say about our Premium Guitar Tech Set:

The Premium Guitar Tech Screwdriver And Wrench set is great, with its compact case and Octopus tech tool, is great for any screws on any guitar as well as the Octopus head allows you to tighten anything with a nut on your guitar, be it your tuning pegs, or your input jacks, the spanner included allows your to quickly tighten your potentiometers without having to remove any knobs off your guitar, while protecting your guitars finish with the microfiber backing on it, a must have for all touring guitar techs

Geoff Luttrell, Owner-Guitar Tech of SF & Sonoma County Guitar Works had this to say about our Nut Height Gauge:

"In my 20 plus years of doing setups, I have used every complicated nut height gauge out there from digital to dials, and I have come back to loving this hassle-free, easy to use and accurate MusicNomad Nut Height Gauge."

Caleb Smart, Senior Tech at Sweetwater's Guitar Gallery had this to say about our Precision Gauges:

"The MusicNomad Feeler Gauges are a game changer. They take away the hassle of fumbling through a bunch of gauges with an oily mess. They have the most common size gauges I need to get the job done fast, without the oily mess and it comes with a thick pick to act like a capo which is a huge plus!" 

Chris, owner and Master Guitar of Third Coast Guitar (Chicago, IL), a top repair shop in the Midwest had this to say about our Precision String Action Gauge:
"The MusicNomad String Action Gauge is great and so easy to see the lines compared to standard gray metal gauges. They are now our standard setup measuring tool on every bench." 
Jeff Cummings touring tech for Anthrax Stage Right had this to say about our 6 pc. Precision Setup Gauge Set:

“To have a compact kit with feeler and radius gauges makes it so much easier to get all the instruments I deal with dialed in on the go. Every musician or tech should have this in their tool kit or guitar case to make sure their adjustments are on point.” 

Chris Click, musician emailed us about our KEEP IT SIMPLE, SETUP (KISS)™ Starter Kit Bundle :

New bassist here and I just did my first setup yesterday when the starter bundle I ordered arrived. Super easy to follow instructions and tools and my bass plays great. The videos were all super helpful too. 

D. Davis commented on Youtube about our MN609 KISS Setup Starter Kit

"Wow I just setup an Ibanez Talman with all of the tools except the files which I have ordered for my Les Paul. I followed the video to a T and Wala! it has actually made me sound like a better player by making the guitar play better and sound better. Thanks for the Video it's a great help!"

drfonta on Youtube posted this review about our Keep It Simple Setup (KISS)™ Tools and Videos:

I completely re-setup 4 of my electric guitars from the first step using your KISS method and WOW what a difference! Intonation is spot on and the guitars all play in perfect tune all the way up and down the neck. Getting the nut filed/set correctly was huge and even the truss rod was off on all of them! Knowledge is power so thank you for putting these easy to understand videos and a great set of tools to do this with.
