Never leave your guitar behind again. FretPen is a super portable wireless practice instrument!
MUSIC is powerful; it unites, motivates and inspires us. We dream of joining our favorite band or artist on stage. And, nailing that solo or favorite song on guitar.
But, where’s your stage? Days filled with commutes, meetings, classes and other activities don’t leave much room for playing guitar. Or, do they?
Practice, learn, or just have fun making music — anywhere — with FretPen. With matchless portability and an authentic playing experience, FretPen means you’ll never leave your guitar behind again. And best yet: The real-world skills and muscle memory you develop with FretPen are directly transferable to a full-size guitar.
Portability meets playability
Ever had a practice session cut short by demands like work, school or a dentist appointment? Unfortunately, bringing a full-size guitar with you to these places isn’t an option.
That’s why we created FretPen. Much of the time you spend waiting could be spent playing — if only you had the right guitar.
FretPen goes with you anywhere, and it’s built from authentic materials to deliver a realistic playing experience. Its modular design combines superior portability with wireless playability through your iOS device. Enjoy studio quality guitar tones through headphones or external speakers.

FretPen is for beginners and experienced players! It’s an accessible and fun introduction to guitar for those just starting, kids and air-guitarists-turned-shredders. Pick it up and you’ll be jamming in seconds.
