Isn’t what as “good” as it could’ve been.
The queue was 45 minute long and it was jam packed inside.
It was the first one so there were bound to be problems.
They basically misjudged the amount of interest here in London.
They are already learning from this one and planning ahead for next year.
Sounds like it was more popular than they expected, did you get to try and of the gear? Glad I didn’t go in that case, sounds like they need a bigger venue in future!
I did get to try some of guitar pedals but not many.
The two that stood out for me where Two Notes and Rainger FX.
Two notes had a guitar preamp with 64bit internal mixing with over sampling,
proprietary custom chips and their own reverb algorithms.
My guitar, an Epiphone WildKat, sounded super sweet through it.
Rainger FX had some rather quirky pedals on display including one they call
a “Minibar”, which needs liquid to work.
High conductive liquids create low gain, low conductive liquids create high gain
and one can change the tone by the amount or light it receives via a photo resistor,
the designers liquid mix of choice is a vodka with a dash of coffee
all in all a rather fun concept.
