2010 Los Angeles Amp Show

Way, Way Amp’d!

The 6th Annual LA Amp Show was held October 2 and 3. An army of vendors showing off a slew of gear including amps, guitars, pedals, cables, and more, descended upon the Airtel Plaza Hotel in Van Nuys, CA, just north of Hollywood, where they took over most of the first floor, each occupying a separate room. There was great buzz in the air (not to mention great rocking of speaker cones) as company reps, often including the owners themselves, showed off full inventories including newly released models. I felt like a kid in a candy store, having free reign to sample and get the nitty gritty on the goods.

Yeah, I Got My Amp On
