Report from Gothenburg Guitar Show, Sweden 26-27th of April.
By Anders Bergdahl UGG
UGG attended the annual Gothenburg guitar show that is held the last
Weekend of April. The show attracts gear freaks and traders from all over
The Nordics, here is some of our personal highlights.
First off UGG displayed some cool gear at a table in the middle of the
Ground floor, sadly this was a silent show so where not allowed to let
people enjoy the greatness of Komet, Germino, Mystique amps, Skrydstrup and
a big array of stomp boxes. I suspect that some where not so sad since these
amp can be quite loud, and even a Komet CAN get tiresome if you are trying
to talk about G&L guitars with a customer 8 feet from the speaker cab.
There where a at least some degree of interest in our idea and we had some
great discussions with other tone hounds during the weekend.
Some highlights where Dennis GIGANTIC pedal collection 600 stomp boxes the
worlds largest known collection.
ARES with Guitars mostly built with Nordic
woods, the one we tried where a Zebrawood bodied guitar with mahogany neck,
it had a very percussive and personal sound.
Vintage Vibe displayed some custom built amps,
including Vibroclone, a Blues SR which basically is a almost standard
Blues-JR in a hand built 3*10 enclosure. It really sounded like a completely
Custom Sounds of Finland where there, of course, displaying BJF Pedals and
the Mad Professor amp. The Mad Professor himself, Björn Juhl (Swedish),
happily showed new BJF pedals through the Mad Professor amp. This is a very
good and quite unique amp which we hope to do a complete review of soon.
There where some new BJF designs as well, a TS inspired OD and a quite nice
little green booster that was a really special little pedal. Custom Sounds
also displayed Tone Tubby speakers.
