See Wattson At Winter NAMM!
The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) is the largest trade organization in the
world for the music products industry, and Wattson Classic Electronics is a proud member
NAMM holds two big conventions each year, one in January (called "Winter NAMM") and one
in July (called "Summer NAMM"). These are the most anticipated events in the music products
industry because this is when distributors and retailers get a chance to meet manufacturers
and see their products first hand. Even more important, this is the event where manufacturers
often announce their newest products, which means musicians watch reports of the convention as
closely as people who work in the trade.
Wattson Classic Electronics will be exhibiting at the 2014 Winter NAMM Convention in Anaheim,
California. We will be sharing a booth provided by The Deli Magazine
(www.thedelimagazine.com) with several other fine
pedal makers. If you happen to attend the Winter NAMM convention then stop by Booth 1472
in Hall E and say hello!
Also, we'll post updates and photos from the show whenever we get a little spare time on our
Wattson Escape Velocity!
It's here! The Wattson Escape Velocity is not just another Tube Screamer
clone. It's the Tube Screamer that Ibanez wishes it had released!
Because it has all of the characteristics that make a Tube Screamer sound really good on most amps, while
adding the right mods to make it sound really great on the rest of the amps. Low noise
pre and post amps, better bass response, the ability to eliminate the mid hump completely,
the ability to adjust the clipping threshold so you can play hard without having to overdrive
hard, plus a wide operating voltage that provides enough headroom to handle even the hottest
Our buddy Brian demonstrates the new Wattson Escape Velocity overdrive using variety of
different guitars and pickups in the video below. Check it out!
You can buy the Wattson Escape Velocity here, but you better hurry because this build
will sell out fast! Click here to learn more!
Farewell, Bob Sweet!
We learned of the passing of Bob Sweet, founder of Sweet Sound Electronics, on
Friday, October 24th, 2008.
It was impossible to be involved in the guitar effects business, or be a guitar
player with any exposure at all to boutique effects, and not know about Bob Sweet
and Sweet Sound. Bob was an icon, and his pedals are legendary. On top of all that,
Bob was a really great guy.
Bob was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in January. By August it was looking like he'd
successfully beaten it. Shortly after that, his doctors discovered he had bone cancer,
and it took his life in a few very short months.
We miss you, Bob. Farewell!
