Wyomissing, PA Guitar and Bass Expo by Rick Link and Kilian Duarte…
Saturday August, 22nd 2015 saw the gathering of some fantastic luthiers and amplifier manufacturers descend on Wyomissing, Pennsylvania.
The event was a wonderfully intimate NAMM-esque showcase featuring some of the top names in boutique gear for the second year in a row. Some prestigious names such as Beardly Customs, Spector Basses, Brubaker Guitars, NS Design, Dark Horse Strings, R Hyde Basses, HJC Custom and Paul Reed Smith, among many others were in attendance.
The event was alive with bass players from all over the country coming together to exchange ideas, commerce, and to nerd out in the funnest gear way we can.
The day was definitely highlighted by the legendary Doug Wimbish performing to an awe-struck crowd, as the master himself laid down the epic-ness.
Stuart Spector of Spector basses was kind enough to bring the first-ever NS designed bass to ever exist. It is a piece of bass history that has now been proliferated endlessly throughout the world.
All in all it was a very successful event that we hope to cover again next year!
We here at BMM want to give an enormous thank you to Rick Link at Beardly Customs for providing us with some amazing shots from the show!
