About the Company

Focused on innovative designs for musicians, with the ultimate goal of  contributing to the advancement of modern music, K/\M instruments has its roots in live performance and recording. The company's founder and primary designer Kamran Salehi (called Kam, by friends) is an active musician and recording engineer.  The needs and issues that arise in the actual process of performing live and recording music are sources of product development. This keeps the company focused on what is really useful to musicians. Kamran holds two bachelors degrees and a masters in computing. His technical background combined with love of music provide the platform to develop products which address the gaps in what has been previously available to musicians.

K/\M instruments utilizes the expertise of multiple designers, each with years of experience in their particular field, to build on knowledge of what has been produce to date and push the forefront one step further.

We do not consider other musical instrument companies as competitors. We see the entire society of musicians and musical instrument providers as one team, working on evolution of music. Whenever possible, we cooperate with other companies and use existing standards and components simply because it provides the shortest path to offering useful new tools to musicians.
