Mike Matthews has incredible stories to tell! The founder of Electro Harmonics and the pioneer of guitar effects pedals seem to have a story for all occasions. His innovations have helped shape a generation of music makers such as his late friend Jimi Hendrix. Mike has been on the frontlines of trade relations and exportation of products from countries such as Russia (as early as 1978 if you can believe that). He has established himself as a spokesperson for his generation of music makers who want to be successful in business while having enough time to rock and roll! Mike’s NAMM Oral History interview was completed on January 22, 2006.
