MusicNomad Equipment Care www.MusicNomadCare.com who introduced GuitarTracker www.TheGuitarTracker.com in 2013, the first web based app to keep track and maintain your gear, has added a few new features. Most notably is the ability to export all your gear information to excel. “Exporting is a popular request for those that use this for insurance reasons as well as many music schools use Guitar Tracker to keep track of all their instruments” says Rand Rognlien. This free web app was developed for MusicNomad customers to use and is available to all musicians also. Hundreds of musicians have uploaded thousands of guitars since it was launched. Users create an inventory of their gear ranging from guitars, amps, pedals and more. For each item the user may upload photos, year-make-model, serial number, purchase price, string info, and more. Logging serial number and photos is critical in the case of theft. The database primarily focuses on guitars, but one may upload information on any equipment via your computer, tablet or phone.
GuitarTracker links to manufacturers’ websites, giving musicians the most up to date information about the care and maintenance of their gear, warranty, online forums, and replacement parts. Load in your preferred guitar repair shop info and email/share info for each guitar. GuitarTracker has pre-loaded maintenance tasks that suggest future dates to keep one’s equipment at its peak performance based on the user’s playing habits. Tasks such as set ups, clean/polish and humidify start/end dates are all built in. User’s notes and additional tasks may be added to further customize GuitarTracker for the individual. When a task is due, an email alert is sent as a reminder. This is a great app for repair shops too!
