Blustream's Product Experience Passion

Blustream was founded by Bob Bean when he had a product problem and no way to solve it. Over time, his beloved Taylor guitar had a crack, and he was beside himself for not taking better care of it. It wasn't because he didn't try- he didn't know he had a problem until it was too late. Bob reached out to Bob Taylor, the President of Taylor Guitars, to figure out a solution - and Blustream was born.

With IoT technology, a mobile app, and AI - a guitar owner never again needs to worry about how they maintain their guitar. And since that time, the Blustream platform has expanded to provide full product experience support.
