Who is the King of Shred?

Last week WEIMA America welcomed John Pahl, a new addition to our technical department! He wrote the following post. Welcome aboard, John!


Steve VaiWho is the King of Shred?
You might get different answers to this question depending on who you ask.

If you are a manufacturer in need of waste reduction equipment, we at WEIMA America are confident that we are at the top of your list.

If you are a fan of guitar virtuosos in the rock and metal vein, your answer might be Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Yngqie Malsteen or John Petrucci. These guitar "shredders" have built a name and reputation on being the very best at what they do... that is, soloing in an often fast and furious style at a technical level far beyond their peers. Those raised on top 40 and Kenny G may not be familiar with the shred genre of music, and that's OK. To each his own. For those who want a more challenging musical experience, check out any of the above names via YouTube to see what technical prowess, exotic scales, and genuine genius looks and sounds like. While many new shredders lie in wait for a chance at the crown, being fast is not enough. Innovation and a reputation for consistently surpassing your past achievements is the only way to deliver a superior product that both surprises and delights both fans and peers. 

It's the same with WEIMA America. It's not enough to build quality machinery; our innovations lead the industry as our products stand the test of time. 

So who is the King of Shred?
You tell me.
