Indestructible Carbon Fiber Foldable Guitar
09 July 2018
These guitars are made of the same stuff military jets are made of, which makes them virtually unbreakable. KLOS Guitars aren't your average guitars, they are made of Carbon fibers.
Carbon fiber is extremely durable to the point that temperature and humidity doesn't impact it. If it did, you wouldn't be able to fly 10Km ( 30K feet ) above your recording studio.
Carbon fiber is much stronger and more resistant than wood. The one-piece body makes a very strong structure all around, whereas wooden guitars need bracing and kerfing at the juncture of the back piece to the side piece to support the thin wood and corners. On the KLOS guitar, there are no bottom corners to crack or dent.
Because Carbon fiber is man-made you can design it and produce it the way you want and reproduce each guitar the same exactly way.
While wood makes each guitar slightly different.
Klos guitars are small enough to fit in your backpack, large enough to play comfortably and very durable. The foldable feature guarantees easy travel.
Glow in the dark models (last color swatch) are limited edition models.
The Klōs boasts an inviting, medium-thickness neck profile and extremely clean fretwork across the entire board. As one would expect, unplugged tones are boxier than a full-sized instrument’s, yet there’s more than enough volume for campfire sing-alongs, as well as a pretty good sonic balance across the frequency spectrum.
Amplified, the guitar gets the usual fidelity characteristics associated with an affordable, single-element piezo system. However, the lows and low mids get a sizable boost that can really open up the feel of fingerpicked passages.
In March 2018 Klos Guitars launched yet another successful crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. It hit its funding goal for a carbon fiber tenor ukulele within the first 24 hours.
“We’ve finally completed the travel guitar product line and are now expanding to ukuleles,” said Adam Klosowiak, co-founder with his brother Ian, of Klos Guitars.
The Indiegogo campaign had surpassed $40,000. It still has a month to go.
