It's not often that a Pro-Audio Company is known to give back to the community and help kids find music instead of finding the street life. The ever-so-popular Korg USA Company is teaming up with the Guitars Not Guns charity program to supply them with the gear they need to be successful. Basically, the Guitars Not Guns program gives inner-city youth an opportunity to take up guitar lessons for free instead of being on the streets getting into trouble. The program not only gives the "at-risk" youth free guitars, but also guitar tuners, metronomes, and effects processors that have been distributed by Korg USA with the goal of also having the kids learn how to care for the instrument as well as use it. Full Press Release below.
