About

All Things Gear was started with one goal in mind — to be the go-to source of musical instrument reviews and information about the companies that build the products in those reviews.

Founded in 2013 by Christian de Looper, All Things Gear prides itself on offering the best reviews on the web from voices that matter — people that know exactly what they’re talking about and what buyers are looking for when they build up their music gear collections. From its humble beginnings in 2013, ATG has continued to grow and make friends throughout the music industry, something that’s only set to continue.

Do you think you have what it takes to be an authoritative voice in the musical instrument industry? We’re always looking for fresh talent, so head here to shoot us a message. Or, perhaps you’re interested in advertising with us. In that case, head here.

Christian de Looper was born in Canberra Australia, and since then has lived in Europe and now lives in sunny California. When he's not tinkering with the latest music gear, Christian is devouring news on new consumer technology.
  • Hello Christian de Looper,
    I noticed an article you wrote and saw that you write about and are interested in technology and of course are a a guitar player and producer.
    I am wondering if you use or know about the YRG1000 Gen2 MIDI guitar. The first fast tracking, affordable mass produced MIDI guitar on the market. Our revolutionary patented fretboard and electronics makes this a keyboard for guitarists. Something they have been waiting for for a long time. It is not a pitch to MIDI converter that has inherent latency. Street price $249
    Mobile – MAC, PC, iPAD, iPhone and other devices
    Recording, tablature and notation software compatible via USB
    Amp or earphones
    Backpack ready – neck is removable.
    Best Regards,
    Chasey Elion
