Rob OReilly Guitars custom build the worlds most advanced MIDI guitars. Our Expressiv technology brings incredible sounds to world class musicians in a range of stunning guitars.
In 2010, Rob needed synthesised sounds to bring a new dynamic to his band. These sounds were not available from guitar so reluctantly they played key based synths. This instantly transformed the band but raise the question - "Can we play these sounds on guitar".
Over the next 4 years with continuous research and development in the University of Limerick, Ireland, Expressiv was born. It now brings these sounds with a whole new dynamic of performance to the fingertips of world class guitar players.
Kickstarter got us off the ground, along with an appearance on Irish Dragons den, and we're finally building and selling these guitars all over the world.
Our workshop sits in the beautiful county Kerry in the South West of Ireland where Rob and his team meticulously hand build each guitar. You really get a beautiful bespoke and high tech instrument that will take you to new dimensions of performance and creativity.
