This is an amazing story, please take a moment to watch the video above that explains how a community in Haiti that struggle to even get water daily are being helped out by an organisation called Raincatchers, who not only to help them catch fresh rain water but to supply them with guitars that can survive the extreme climate that normally destroy acoustic guitars, all thanks to Peavey Composite Guitars.
Raincatchers team member Chad Dohring learned just how much experiencing guitar meant to the townspeople when he brought out his acoustic guitar. While many of the residents had never seen or heard a guitar before, they were equally amazed and delighted by the instrument.
Composite Acoustics revolutionized the acoustic guitar market with the introduction of instruments totally built from composite materials. Carbon fiber allows Composite Acoustics to create a guitar that is more consistent than any other acoustic guitar on the planet — no matter the climate conditions. Their unique production process combines extensive hand-crafting with cutting edge technology such as CAD design and CNC machining, resulting in an innovative, consistent, brilliant-sounding and highly durable guitar.
Plus, the nature of carbon fiber produces an instrument that stays in tune longer and never needs adjustment. By varying the carbon fiber material density in different areas of the body, Composite Acoustics instruments are able to achieve a finely tuned tone that is consistent from instrument to instrument. Carbon fiber construction and heelless neck joints also allow for instrument shapes not possible with wood.
Dohring received a Composite Acoustics Cargo guitar, and started teaching music at the new school in Haiti. “The hope that is filled on their faces when they play and sing and make music is amazing. Music brings hope. It really does,” he says. In addition to the lessons that Dohring oversees, the Composite Acoustics Cargo guitar is left there for students to use on a regular basis.
