Backstage Gear Tours
Test high end guitar gear at home during one week
The idea of the Backstage Gear Tours is to allow the Backstage Pass owners to test a piece of gear at home on their gear, in their familiar environment with their sonic references they are used to. As we all know, there's a world of difference in trying a piece of gear in a music compared to doing it at home.
Here's how it works: The Guitar Channel sends the gear to the first backstager who tests the equipment at home for a week who will then send the piece of gear to the next and so on until the return to the headquarters of The Guitar Channel.
- Purpose: to circulate gear among the certified backstagers (via the certification program)
- Loan length: up to one week
- Reception of the gear: Free
- Sending the gear to the next tour step: at the expense of the backstager
The loaned gear within the Backstage Gear Tours is provided by Pro Backstage Pass holders. For these companies this is a great opportunity to have their gear tested under optimum conditions by guitar enthusiasts.
To limit the shipping cost, the tours happen only in metropolitan France. Sending a pedal in France in Colissimo costs about € 10.
The rules to follow
- Respect loaned gear
- Sending to the next step on time
- Post to choose a photo and / or video and / or article about your test on the private community and on social networks
