Marthink Skateguitars About Us

About Us

Marthink is a project that was born in Studio219. Studio always related to skate and with art too. We have always had ideas, projects and actions in our mind, but it wasn´t until two years ago when we started working to create an instrument entirely made of skate. This project consists on recycling as many skate and long board boards as possible and turn them into guitars totally made from this raw material (MAPLE). That is the reason why we contacted a multinational that has a board production all over the world. Its name is Hlc distribution and it´s located in the Basque Country (Spain). When we told them the idea of making guitars from recycled board or with print mistakes, they supported us and gave us all facilities to go on with the project. It´s really complicated to make a musical instrument with a good quality of sound. However, we have in our Marthink team one of the best luthier, Iñaki Perman, in Spain. His work is completely handmade. We have tested our guitars in studios with professional musicians and bands and the result has been a success. Now, we are working in a new collection of guitars, new prototypes and new sounds but always with skate in mind. We hope people could appreciate the handmade work we make in Studio219, a luthier work merged with skate.

Philosophy

When you practise skate for a long time, you realise that it has a very particular sound: the wheels spinning in the pavement, when you grind or skid or when you slide through a tube. That sound must not ever finish and that´s why Marthink has turned it into music, becoming the beginning of our idea to mix skate and music. Marthink has created a sound from a skate board.
