What's going on, guys? My name is Joey Biagas. And I'm an audio engineer and musician for about seven years now. And today we are going to talk about the difference between kiln drying versus natural drying. Now this is actually a kiln dried acoustic guitar. And what that means is when they, whey they are creating an acoustic guitar or just a guitar in general. There's different pieces involved. So kiln is actually of course an oven. And that changes the structure within the wood because it's not naturally dried. It's dried using heat. So when the wood is naturally dried it's going to still have the characteristics of being organic wood which changes over time. And also moisture or you know maybe you spill a beer on it or something like that it's going to change it and perhaps warp it over time. So kiln drying is actually going to last longer versus naturally dried wood. So that's why I got mine kiln dried. So if you do have any other questions please let me know. And that's basically it for kiln drying versus natural drying acoustic guitars. Thanks for watching.
