    O-Port at the Summer NAMM 2009

    Dare Music Group introduces the O-Port at Summer NAMM 2009.

    Dare Music Group, an Austin, Texas, USA-based musical instrument and guitar aftermarket product company, has developed a new guitar enhancement that is proven to improve the sound of any acoustic guitar. The O-Port has been tested under the scrutiny of acoustic engineers and world-renowned sound producers and engineers to improve tonal quality. The result is a fuller, richer sound with noticeably increased sustain and harmonic range.

    This is particularly pronounced when the instrument is plugged in and amplified, resulting in a much fuller sound, a stronger signal to the internal pick-up and significant feedback control.

    In artistic terms, the O-Port is the perfect combination of innovation and craftsmanship. It is a work of brilliant acoustic engineering in itself, adding to the functionality of the instrument while staying true to the traditional aesthetics so valued by acoustic guitar players. Its simplicity will astound players and confound those who have tried in vain to build a "the next big thing" for guitars. This was evident at the recent MusikMesse convention, the world's largest music industry trade show, where retailers and distributors from every continent gave an overwhelming response to the O-Port, and secured orders for music stores in eight countries.

    O-Port will be first sold in two sizes in music stores worldwide as an aftermarket self-installation device that fits in almost any acoustic guitar, regardless of make or model. And it's gaining accolades from award-winning musicians, producers and sound engineers everywhere.

    " I always enjoy discovering and trying new devices to make the recording process easier, better and more fun. I've just heard an amazing device called the O-PORTTM. The difference really becomes obvious when you place a mic in front of the instrument. It's a kind of "acoustic enhancer" that any serious player, recording engineer or producer would notice" -Neil Dorfsman -- acclaimed producer for Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Sting, The Rolling Stores and hundreds of other music icons.

    Musicians, retailers and distributors will get a chance to see the O-Port at the summer NAMM show in Nashville, July 17-19 at booth 1405.
