“In four years of being a guitar player, I usually jumped from one guitar pick to another, searching for the right pick that I am comfortable with. When I tried the Jazz Heart Beat pick made by Anatomy of Sound… The durability, playability, comfort, and thickness of the pick has lifted my guitar playing to a higher level. It has enhanced my speed, accuracy, and ability to get my signature tone.

Anatomy of Sound guitar picks has quality you can’t find in other picks in the market. Every corner of the pick gives a different tone. It gives more flavor to every AoS.”

Zachary Jeymz C. Abalos, a.k.a “Zach Jeymz,” is a 19-year-old guitar phenom from Manila, Philippines. Zach was born and raised in Manila, the capital of the Philippines. His father, Jerome Abalos was the front man of several rock bands and is a celebrity in the local entertainment scene.

Zach was literally introduced to music the moment he was conceived. His dad played rock music, from Black Sabbath to Pantera aloud, almost all the time, exposing Zacks’s unborn ears to different genre of rock music.

When Zach was about 5 years old, his parents saw him holding a badminton racket as a guitar, and fiddled with it. That was when his parents knew Zack would someday become a guitar player.

As a son of a rock musician, he started seriously playing guitar around age 15. At 16, he and his three other brothers, Sean, lead singer and keyboard player, Shane, drummer, and Andy, bass player, played their first gig at a local battle of the bands. The following year, Zach, Shane, and Sean joined their dad and formed a band named SOLABROS.com.

Now 19, Zach has played with their family’s band in countless gigs all over the country. SOLABROS.com played in front 55,000 people at the world’s biggest indoor arena, The Philippine Arena.

Zach is poised to be one of music’s next great guitar players, a virtuosic talent capable of playing rock, heavy metal, and more. Zach knew he wanted to pursue a career in music from an early age. As a freshman in college, Zach took a course in information technology and plans to finish his college education.

“I always knew I am going to be a musician. But I think, finishing my college education is another purpose in life that I need to fulfill.” Zach said.

Zack’s dad introduced him to the music of guitar greats like Jimmy Page, John Petrucci, Steve Vai, Joe Satrianni, and Dimebag Darrel.

“Growing up with a family of musicians, at our free time, I’d sit and play my guitar for hours practicing, sharpening my skills,” Zach said.

Zach’s effort paid off when he, together with SOLABROS.com signed up with DNA Records, a subsidiary of Star Records of ABS-CBN Corporation. Currently, Zach with SOLABROS.com are under contract with Viva Records, Philippines. With the group’s debut album, due in 2021, Zach has also established himself as the band’s lead guitar player.

“Since the moment I picked up the Flexible Bikini Pick, I have never used anything else. The grip is excellent, and I am able to transition between different tones without having to change picks.”

As We Become Ghosts

As We Become Ghosts

As We Become Ghosts (A.W.B.G) was a project that’s seed was planted in early 2018 by artist/writer Mickeyratt, originally writing and recording rough demos of a few songs to put out to attract other musicians to be in the project.

Steve Kholer on the Bass was first to believe in what this project/band would become. Together Mickey and Steve started on a long quest to find the best drummer and lead Guitar player available. After trying many seasoned and amazing guitarists we still did not feel they fit the exact part that A.W.B.G. needed to be extra special.

After a long and frustrating search Lead Guitarist Alex Fysz entered the scene in 2019, by pure luck. Alex was recommended to Mickeyratt for a tattoo. While meeting for a consult it was revealed that Alex was Guitar player. The conversation switched rapidly to influences. It was a match made by destiny.

The three continued to search for just the right drummer, to breath life into this now no longer project but rather a band of brothers. We had our eye on drummer extraordinaire Phil Wax for a while. He had recently become available, and we approached him about coming aboard. Phil learned a Few of our songs and was over to our private studio to try out within days. We all knew at that moment of the audition that A.W.B.G was destined for greatness.

Mickeyratt knew from the start that he wanted this to be a band and not just a solo project. Together the band started rehearsing vigorously writing and creating original music that has influences that span from the 70s to the 2000s. It is our goal to write (A) side songs; where any one of our songs could be the single that would take us to the top. While tackling many issues in our writing, involving: addiction, relationships, suicide, death and other painful struggles, with an upside of hope.

A.W.B.G is climbing the ladder fast and receiving much interest from the public at large. We released a rehearsal video of two songs as a teaser to an upcoming show that received close to 3000 views in under a month, with many viewers sharing and reposting. A.W.B.G is currently in the studio working on a full length album, working on a few videos to be released and booking shows.

We will see you all at the top… better yet, why don’t you all just come along for the ride with us it’s gonna be a hell of a journey!

“I’ve always used the jazz III picks until I tried out the picks from Anatomy Of Sound. I’m now only using the Heart Beat 3D Jazz Picks.

I’m honored using their product and these picks really stepped up my playing to the next level!

I love how they are designed and they feel perfect in my hand. My alternate picking works even better than before.”

“My favourite plectrums in the world are the Anatomy of Sound Blue Ergonomic plectrum. The way it is shaped is super comfortable and the thickness of the pick really reduces tension in the fingers, which has assisted my recovery with RSI. The sound it produces is strong and warm.”
