Jack White has opened a new dedicated website to showcase his artwork and multimedia design, spanning over 20 years of his career.
The new site features everything from White’s influences, photography, filmmaking, vinyl concepts, sculptures, and – perhaps most exciting to us – his musical instruments and gear.
The material side includes the various collaborations of Third Man Records with manufacturers of effects pedals. Overseen by White, these consist of incredibly unique distortions, fuzzs, and most recently the Third Man x Coppersound Triplegraph, an interesting kill switch and telegraph-style octave pedal.
There are also various other guitars that Jack has modified or built himself over the years. One notable inclusion is the diddley bow, the single string instrument that White constructed in the opening scene of the 2009 documentary. It could get noisy. The diddley arch was on display at the Atlanta Museum of Design as part of their 2019 exhibit Wire & Wood.
Other design work on display included Third Man’s recording and mastering studios, as well as the company’s vinyl pressing plant. Third Man Hardware recently exhibited at the Summer NAMM Show in Nashville, with White’s own Copper Triple Jet appearing on the booth as a demo guitar.
