Day 2 in Anaheim started off with a game of table tennis. Haven't played this since my teens, and man was I ever rusty! Ama (at the right), and Shun put up a good fight too =)
After breakfast it was time for some coffee at 7 Eleven and a walk down to Guitar Center for amp hunting! Quite a selection of coffee I must say!
of course , I choose Fusion Energy!
A very nice coffee, with a prominent taste of Lydian b7, and under currents of Diminished and Altered flavors =)
Then began the walk down to Guitar Center and on the way we saw a car I just had to share with you. I can't imagine someone actually driving around in this monster outside, well, a monster truck arena. Super Size, just like everything else the US I guess! =)
Finally arrived at Guitar Center, it was a behemoth of a store for sure!
Inside we bumped in to Swedish guitar builder Ola Strandberg, who makes headless super-ergonomical guitar, with very cool design and ergonomical ideas! Check out his website HERE.
Guitar Center was like a real water hole for us guitar nuts, because we also ran into Jimmy from EM Nordic in Scandinavia (PRS representative) and two forum friends from Sweden (not pictured here).
We ended going with an Egnater Tweaker combo for the show. For one it sounded good, but also since it has the three distinct EQ voicings (Brit, Vox, US), and also because of the voltage options (110/230V), which means we can use it Frankfurt Messe just as easily as NAMM.
Back at the hotel we hooked up with the other guys sharing out booth from One-Control Japan
and MOEN Effects from China.
Here we're back in the hotel room with Steve from MOEN FX, test driving some pedals through the amp.
Here we have MOEN FX GEC9 Effects Routing System. Not only does it look great, but is a true bypass system, with buffer, fully programmable and that can also control your amp (such as all the switching options on a Mesa/Boogie for example). Very cool stuff!
Small footprint for such a device too.
Once again we ended up at The Cheesecake Factory!
And finally, time for todays Cheese Cake, Godiva Chocolate!
Tomorrow we will start to build the booth, and dinner will be had at the Eric Johnson concert at House of Blues, so I'll try to shoot some video then as well.
Over and out!
