Who Are We?
Kill Guitar Rigs (KGR) was created to serve as a comprehensive repository of guitar-related information, buying guides, and gear reviews. With a mission to be the best in the business, our objective is to become the ultimate reader-supported free resource for students and guitar enthusiasts around the world.
KGR is the brainchild of Brian Kelleher – a musician who has been playing the guitar for the past 15 years. However, he quickly realized that this was not a job for a single person. As he expanded into the sub-categories of guitars and production, he started putting together a solicitous team of passionate musicians and recording artists to cover all the bases.
Today, each member of this rapidly expanding enterprise is a stalwart in his or her field. They bring years of experience and an unbridled passion to support the aspirations of our readers. They ensure that every article we put up is a silo of information that is worth reading and sharing.
What do we do?
We prudently curated a team of veteran writers with first-hand experience in music, recording, and production to coverall facets of guitar playing and rig building. Heck, we’ve even got a luthier on the team!
Every month the team gets together to brainstorm the agenda based on research and data insights – to create fresh content that has unrivaled accuracy and speckled with real insights.
We aim to create the best and most trustworthy content likebuying guides,how-to articles and gear reviews that make it simple for you to find the right product for your skill level and expertise.
We are a reader-supported website. Thanks to your interest in our work, we’ve been growing rapidly and have been able to publish high-quality content on a regular schedule.
How do we do it?
We often review gear and products by rigorously testing products and doing head-to-head comparisons whenever needed. It is important to have a strict editorial calendar so that we can order, test and review the equipment before we publish our recommendations.
We are all musicians who have, at some point, shared the plight and struggled with the dilemmas that our readers face. We draw on our experiences to make considerate suggestions keeping your preferences in mind. Our research is thorough, our acclamations are considerate and our content is precise.
Our buying guides aim to explain every nuance of the product category they feature and our reviews attempt to thin the herd so that you can make a quick and reliable choice. As a final step, all work is filtered through the keen eye of our editorial team before it is uploaded on the website.
