Other Cathedrals

Other Cathedrals Other Cathedrals is a guitar library in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Welcome to Other Cathedrals. This is the guitar collection of Kaki King, housed in a beautiful private setting that doubles as a recording studio. After years of recording and touring Kaki realized that she had far too many guitars to play and maintain. She had also met many aspiring guitarists who were struggling with the quality of their instrument, or who had never had the luxury of playing a high-end or handcrafted guitar. She felt like the best way to solve these two problems was to bring the guitars and the people together, and give them both the privacy and time they deserved. The thirty-odd instrument collection contains beautiful dreadnought acoustic guitars, parlor guitars, mini 12 strings, one of a kind electrics, lap steels, a doubleneck pedal steel, a harp guitar, and more. Each guitar is set up in a unique way, using string configurations, pickups, and other techniques to make it one of a kind. Many were commissions from luthiers with whom Kaki has had long relationships. There are some fantastic amps, pedals galore, and lots of fun guitar add ons such as the Vo-96 and the Tonewood amp. We are currently offering lessons that range from beginners to advanced, including private lessons with Kaki herself. We offer recording services with either your own engineer, or one of our talented in house engineers. Taking the name from Adrian Legg's album, "Guitars and Other Cathedrals," the library and studio is currently an experiment in what happens when you put together guitars + privacy + time. Please email [email protected] or send us a private facebook message to apply for a visit.

Our good friend Nicole Lawrence of @aircrafting_ fame on the 1965 Gibson ES 345 through a 1991 Fender Vibroverb reissue with a touch of OCD overdrive pedal. Nicole likes to know precisely what the f**k she's playing on or she doesn't bother coming over. She is also simultaneously a cool millennial chick and a 70's rocker dude and she's way better than your guitar player. #respect #vintage #hair

Welcome the newest member to the @othercathedrals family. This is a Masterworks hammered dulcimer. Perfect for the drummer/pianist/guitarist in all of us. Tomorrow she's getting new strings and a fine polish. Email othercathedrals @ gmail dot com to schedule a visit.
