The Netherlands, 1994. In the quest of finding the perfect tone, a Dutch Civil Engineer and Acoustics expert Mr.Aristides Poort together with a number of brilliant scientists from Delft University of Technology began researching into an alternative tone material. By answering the question, “What happens to sound wave at a cellular level in a material?”. They came up with Arium.
An environmentally friendly wood alternative, Arium is actually made out of microscopic spheres of glass and natural resins, which give Arium its wood-like cell structure with more resonant.
Endorsed by Euro-shredders, Adrian Vandenberg was quoted to have said “It is really stable and sounds like a Steinway piano. If you hit a low E, it goes on forever”. Now that’s a challenge for the rival Carbon Fiber Guitar. I’m guessing each one would have it’s own unique sound signature and both would have it’s own consistency in dynamic response. In that sense it wouldn’t really make much difference. Both are unique in their own way and both are impervious to temperature fluctuations and humidity. Both can be called “The Forever Guitar”.
I have to say that I am itching to get my hands on them…
