A little over a month ago, I broadcast that the “Fear The Riff” Expo was heading our way in early October and as you read this posting, that very convention is only days away. The full press rundown was outlined in a post that you can examine on THIS LINK and then you can come back here for the update.
I didn’t want to repeat the same press release twice but instead felt that I should focus on the sweet six string and devices vendors since the list has expanded quite a bit since that first post. Take a look at this list and tell me that the wallet isn’t screaming at you to try some of this stuff out (if you are a guitar player of course).
The Vendors: Adventure Audio, Amplified Parts, Analog Alien Guitar Pedals, Avedissian Pick Ups, Black Arts, Boss/Roland, Brian Mercer, Champion Leccy, Charvel Guitars, Damnation Audio, Daredevil, Death By Audio, Dunlop, Dunwich Amps, Earthquaker Devices, Electro Harmonix, Electronic Audio Experiments, Ernie Ball, EVH, Friedman Pedals, Fuzzrocious, Gibson, Gizmotron, Gretsch Guitars, Ground Control, Heartbreaking Dawns, High River Sauces, Jackson Guitars, KMC Music, LIC Foot Pedals, Lone Wolf, Main.Ace.Fx, Millimetric Instruments, Morley/Ebtech, Night Owl Industries, Old Blood, Noice, Option Knob, Pedal Genie, Phil Jones Bass, PRS Smith Guitars, Quilter Labs LLC, Red Panda, Rigs of Doom, Sam Ash, Schecter Guitars, Seymour Duncan, Small Sound/Big Sound, Supro & Pigtronix, Tomkat Pedals, Tone Mob and others.
Piercing Ken Thoughts: Now in the original post I lined out that I am a drummer but I do love these events when I can manage to explore them. You’re not going to want to miss this if you are a professional player or even just an enthusiast of the craft. There are a lot of gear head websites out there where people showcase this sort of stuff but this event lets you get your hands on it all. Be sure to get your tickets before this sells out and start stockpiling that reserve musical instrument cash. You’re gonna need it. What do you readers think of this brand new convention? Does it excite you? Let me know down in the comments below.
