EMG pickups, Ampeg, and Dunlop rolled into
Nashville during CMT fan fest week to hold a two day (June 5th and 6th)
product showcases at the well known rehearsal and tour support facility Soundcheck.
Some 300 dealers, artists, and technicians from in and around Nashville
attended and had one-on-one time with artist relations personal and product
specialists from each of the companies.
Products such as Ampeg’s Heritage SVT, Dunlop’s Bass Deluxe Fuzz, and
new unreleased EMG pickups along with a host of guitar amps and effects were
all being demonstrated and tested by attendees. “The music industry
has changed drastically in the last decade, and it’s crucial to adapt and
change with it. To that end, carefully cultivated partnerships with
select, quality brands, help to create a more focused and ‘hands on’
alternative to the typical tradeshow model. Working with both EMG and
Dunlop was an absolute delight and relationships we intend to grow.” commented
Scott “Stu” Patterson, A/R Manager for Ampeg / Mackie. With the success of the
Nashville showcase all three companies are in discussions on bringing the
showcase to other cities in the near future. Dunlop’s Bryan Kehoe summed
up the two day showcase with this statement; “Dunlop was very
fortunate to be involved with such a fantastic event, and to partner up with
EMG and Ampeg was a great pleasure. Reaching out on a grass roots level to the
professional players and dealers in and about the Nashville area, in this
manner, is definitely the way of the future. Face to face, people to people,
the real social networking!”
