What's a Gear Evening?
A Gear Evening is a moment of sharing between guitar enthusiasts with guitar gear to try (guitar, amp, pedals) in a rehearsal studio equipped as it should be.
The Gear Evening on Thursday March 23rd from 7pm to 10pm will take place right before the Guitare au Beffroi festival which starts on Friday.
Regularly The Guitar Channel organizes special events to showcase guitar builders in a rehearsal studio where it is possible to both try the instrument in a real playing environment and exchange with the luthier. Last week-end saw two events like that with Springer Guitars as the main focus points. The luthier Mikaël Springer was there in person to engage with the guitar aficionados.
A 2min video to get an idea of the events:
