Previous Guthman Competition Winners

The Guthman Instrument Competition boasts a legacy of identifying great new ideas in instrument creation. Instruments like the Infinitone showed us that it's possible for a musician to use as many tones as an artist uses hues of color, while The Glide demonstrated that music can be accessible and easy for anyone to create, regardless of ability or skill level.

Regardless of what niche a created instrument fills, it has a place waiting for it at the Guthman Competition.
