The Winter NAMM show, brings also news from Taylor Guitars with the release of TaylorSense, a revolutionary new technology that reveals the health and vital signs of a Taylor Guitar.

The TaylorSense smart battery box, which replaces the 9-volt battery box in any acoustic Taylor guitar, houses sensors that monitor the condition of the guitar and communicates via low-energy Bluetooth to the free Taylor Guitars iOS App.

TaylorSense is calibrated to issue timely alerts and notifications to address some of the most common concerns guitar owners face: humidity and temperature extremes, potentially damaging impact, and their onboard pickup system’s battery life.

HUMIDITY ALERTS: Extended exposure to low or high humidity levels can wreak havoc on an acoustic guitar. Not only will it compromise the playability and tone, it can lead to serious damage. Dry conditions can cause the wood to crack, while wet conditions can cause glue joints to fail and the finish to lift.
Your TaylorSense battery box features a digital hygrometer that monitors the humidity level of your Taylor guitar. If the levels remain too low or high for an extended stretch, you’ll receive a humidity alert and a link to information on how to remedy your guitar’s condition.

TEMPERATURE ALERTS: Prolonged exposure to high heat — such as leaving your guitar in a car on a hot summer day — can cause the glues to soften and the bridge to come loose under the string tension. A guitar’s wood can also suffer damage if the guitar goes from extremely cold to hot conditions in a short period of time.
TaylorSense monitors the temperature of your guitar. When that temperature becomes dangerous to your Taylor guitar, you’ll receive an alert and a link to helpful advice from Taylor’s service team.

BATTERY ALERTS: We all want peace of mind when we plug in, especially when it comes to battery life. With TaylorSense, you’ll always have a handle on your pickup system’s battery capacity so it doesn’t fail you when it matters most. When your battery life reaches 30%, you’ll receive an alert. You’ll receive one more when it hits 10%. You can also check your battery life anytime through the Taylor App, which means you’ll always know exactly where you stand before a gig.

IMPACT ALERTS: While TaylorSense can’t prevent your guitar from being dropped, knocked over, or roughed up during your travels, it can let you know if it suffers a serious blow. If your guitar takes a hit, TaylorSense will notify you so you can inspect it more closely for damage. TaylorSense also records the time of the incident, which can help you identify the probable cause. That can come in handy if the incident occurs after you’ve checked your guitar with an airline or when the guitar is at home with kids or pets around.

“I’ve been making guitars for more than 40 years now,” says Taylor Guitars co-founder Bob Taylor, “and one avoidable thing we’ve seen in our Repair department over that time is damage—damage caused by temperature, humidity and impact. We’ve preached protection, proper care and awareness of the warning signs of imminent guitar damage, and now with TaylorSense, a player will know when their guitar is experiencing distress, and importantly, how to remedy it, through a robust selection of video care tutorials.”

The free Taylor Guitars App presents the data from the TaylorSense smart battery box in a series of easy-to-follow screens, and proactively delivers push notification alerts to the iOS device’s home screen. Each notification includes a link to “how-to-fix” tutorial videos to help the owner provide proper care for their guitars.
