well, you've gotten plenty of Positives on the amp show.. Now allow me to be Mr. Negative..( again) We ( J .Backlund Designs) Attended the first Nashville Amp show.. and while I have NOTHING bad to say about the show itself or the promoters, they did one HECK'uva job putting together a first rate show... but heres what happened to us. #1. we were on the top floor with most of the other guitar builders. and a tiny bit away from the rest of the hoopla on the lower floors. #2. nearly everyone that we saw brought their guitars with them so they could try out new amps.. So for us.. bringing Guitars was kinda not working for us. Although the guy next door did sell a few Reliced Tele and Strat types.. but most of the other guitar builders echoed similar experiences. bringing guitars to an amp show just didn't work for us.. Of course we also brought amps too, So i don't know what happened but we just never had any traffic where we were. Im not saying amps show are bad.. just that you can bomb out at any show regaurdless of format. I think you have to generate the interest for folks to want to "see" your products long before any show. but don't count on the shows themselves to "make you a star" overnight... if folks have not heard of you BEFORE they egt to the show.. they wil pass you by so fast you'll wonder if you have the plague or something.
