One Question Interviews: Pound

Ryan Schutte (Pound – baritone guitar)

SPB: What led you to the baritone guitar as your instrument of choice? 

Schutte: I do a fair amount of hybrid picking which is more difficult on larger gauge strings. The baritone 9 string allows me to use lighter gauge strings, which is easier on my fingers. The thinner strings also help clean things up a bit, resulting in less mud in my tone.
