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.

Gear Evening 23/03/17 - Soultool, Maybach, Anasounds, IT-11 Audio, Reverb.com

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.

Video coverage
A 2min video to get an idea of the events:

Gear Evening debrief video
Here's a video to give you an idea of this first Gear Evening of 2016. The first part of the video will show you the event while it is being setup and during. The second part of the video is composed of short interviews in French of people present for the event.

On Saturday, I organized a Gear Afternoon to spend some quality time in a rehearsal studio with some fellow backstagers playing and testing each other's pieces of gear (guitars, pedals, amps, etc.). It was a lot of fun to have this Special Event in this unstructured format.
