    I just realized that I could build an entire rig from stuff designed & manufactured in my fair city of Houston!

    Steamboat amps
    http://www.myspace.com/steamboatampworks

    Red Star cabinets
    http://www.redstaraudio.com/

    Deviltone effects pedals
    http://www.myspace.com/deviltone1

    Rio Grande pickups
    http://www.riograndepickups.com/index.html

    Marchione guitars
    http://www.marchione.com/

    and Robin Guitars
    http://www.robinguitars.com/

    ... and then, if you needed parts, we have:

    All Parts
    http://www.allparts.com/

    Tejas Tubes (for n.o.s. tubes)
    http://www.tejastubes.com/


    Pretty cool, eh? How about in your city?

    Pretty good stuff in NC too. Carr, Swart, and some pedal makers. Probably some guit makers too, but I only know Carr and Swart for sure. But we have great sales in the Triangle with Indoor Storm, Fat Sound and Destroy All Guitars. :)

    I'm in Nashville, so it's almost not fair haha.

    We have the Timmy being made about 25 minutes away. That has to count for something. ;)

    Conklin Guitars lives here. Other than that, it's tough to even get an amp repair. I usually drive an hour to get that done. There's one guy here that doesn't return calls and another that will take your gear and sit on it for 6 months while you try to "motivate" him to do something.

    Arkansas has: Revenge Amps, EV Speakers, Toad Suck Tones Amps, and Roger Brooks Guitars. We did have a Gretsch factory, and a Mosrite factory. Oddly enough, both of those were in a little town called Booneville. Heard of it? Probably not, and if you have, it is because of Gretsch and Mosrite!

    I'm too far away in NC to consider anything listed so far as local. But I do have John Buscarino. Don't normally use pedals and he has his own line of amps so I guess that's an entire rig. Maybe I should learn jazz.
