Serving Musicians Worldwide.
Galaxy Guitar Products USA was Founded in 1996 in Oceanside Long Island New York as an enthusiastic adventure of Hard Rock Guitarist Randy Young. For 27 years Galaxy Guitar Products USA has been providing unique guitars & accessories worldwide. In 1996 Randy first created the Galaxy Guitar Rack System ( Shown Below). A professional Rack Stand that hold's 7 guitar's or basses providing a protective perimeter for instruments then packs-up into a Flight Case. Randy's vision was to have a guitar company that specialized in a niche market for Hard Rock Guitarists. Now players from all styles of music purchase Guitars from Galaxy.
The vision started in 1975, when a teen-aged Randy Young won best young guitarist in Florida through a contest run by 711 stores and Busch Gardens. A year later Randy met Black Sabbath Guitarist Tony Iommi back stage after a sound check at The West Palm Beach Auditorium during Black Sabbath's Sabotage tour. The next year Tony invited Randy down to Criteria Studios in Miami Florida where Black Sabbath were recording their new album Technical Ecstasy. Randy became impressed that Tony made his own finger protectors to play guitar overcoming a serious 2 finger injury. Tony's fast trills, unique virbrato, Heavy power chords & the time spent in the studio strongly interested Randy to make his own finger protectors. He was influenced by Tony Iommi's heavy left hand percussive pick attack & fast right hand hammer-on's.
Then it happened- One late Miami summer night back at the Thunderbird Hotel on the top floor with the sound of the ocean in the background & the rest of Black Sabbath hanging out in the room Tony showed Randy the Finger Protectors he made. Randy was amazed. In the months to follow Randy tried to make his own finger protector even writing to companies if they could make him one. This was decades before the internet. Waiting almost 2 months for replies the letters arrived in the mail "Sorry we do not make that kind of thimble." Completely driven in 1976 Randy continued to make his own finger protectors. Moving back to New York & after many trial samples Randy started to play with one on his finger on stage. Randy kept his homemade finger protectors in a small blue plastic snap-box with a pouch inside it. His Guitar Tech would keep watch over it at shows.
Randy played with band's Windhill East, Squadran, Young Thunder, Shockwave with serveral CD's available. Facebook sample Link is below. Randy was then asked to audition for Kiss & Ozzy Osbourne. Randy did not want to sell his finger protectors he was making them for his own use. Once the internet hit Musicians of all instruments with injured fingers saw photos & YouTube videos of Randy using a protector. They contacted him requesting if he could make them one. Requests increased from around the world weekly with photos sent in of injured fingers. With many requests Randy produced some but only sent them to Musicians with finger injuries. Today Musicians that truly experienced a severe finger injury search, find & depend on these unique finger protectors to help them play their instruments again. 30 years later Randy searched for United States Manufacturers that could create a formula to his specifications that would be strong yet flexible & last a life time. After many samples Randy approved one formula. Now all Galaxy Protectors & Finger Extensions are made from it.
As fate would have it: The Universe had a plan for one Driven Teenager- Randy Young to create his finger protectors that would ultimately lead to helping many people Worldwide in the future who endured the trama & pain of a finger accident helping hundreds overcome their finger injuries to make music again & get back to playing their instruments they had given up for years because their fingers were injured.
