Stompbox Exhibit in Austin During SXSW

Stompbox Exhibit in Austin During SXSW

The Deli Magazine and Delicious Audio are presenting the first edition of the Austin StompBox Exhibit during this year''s SXSW.

Austin, TX (February 15, 2013) -- After launching the "StompBox Exhibit" concept in 2011 - i.e. a compact display of guitar pedals which allows visitors to test and compare them in the headphones - and after the successes of the 2012 edition at Main Drag Music in Brooklyn - which saw 23 manufacturers and 5 sponsors involved - The Deli Magazine and Delicious Audio are presenting the first edition of the Austin StompBox Exhibit.

This free, interactive, in-the-headphones display of guitar pedals will coincide with the busiest days of the famous live music festival hosted by the Texan city every March. It's scheduled for Friday and Saturday March 15 and 16 in a room facing Austin's most frequented stroll: East 6th Street, in the middle of Austin's East Side (the city's "hipstery" neighborhood a few blocks East of downtown).

The exhibit will attract thousand of pro and semi-pro guitarists who will flood the Texas capital in search of gigs and exposure during the biggest live music event in the US. Musicians are invited to bring their own guitars and plug them in directly into the pedals (there will be demo guitars available). They will be able to test the pedals directly in the headphones, which will be plugged into an amp emulation unit and an headphone preamp.

Headphones will be provided once again by Shure, amp emulation by Line6, pedal boards by PedalTrain, headphone preamps by PreSonus, Guitars by Reverend. Guitar accessory Oknob will also be present.

This is the list of the participating stompbox manufacturers at this point:
T-Rex, TC Electronic, Zvex, Vox, Fender, Ibanez, Pigtronix, EarthQuaker Devices, Line6, Bearfoot Pedals, Wampler, WMD, Enormous Door, Station Audio, and DIY Kits.
