Established in 1892, Harmony is warmly remembered by many musicians as their first guitar – the one that got them started and nourished a deep love of music.
From when Sears bought the company out in 1916 until the mid-’70s, Harmony produced more instruments than any other company in the world under its brand name and others like Silvertone.
Harmony made fretted instruments accessible and welcoming – with products ranging from archtops, flat-tops, electric Spanish, Hawaiian bodied guitars, to ukuleles, banjos, mandolins, violins and more.
We caught up with Harmony at NAMM 2019 to check out their latest gear.
Our host, John Ganem has edited movies and television shows including CSI, Person of Interest, and most recently, Gotham. Saving Zoe is John’s latest movie which should be out next month. His documentary work on Hank Aaron: Chasing the Dream was nominated for an Oscar and an Emmy. John’s wife describes him as “a filmmaker who just happens to be a musician, obsessed with the minutiae level of instruments, and the ongoing search for ‘that sound’.” Currently John is producing the podcast “Sounds Off with Abby Travis.” For more information, visit soundsoffpodcast.com
