[Headed to Austin for SXSW? We know your feet will be tired from pounding Austin's hot concrete, but while you're there, be sure to tread on over to The Deli Magazine's StompBox Exhibit! Myraid stomps from good ol' BOSS standbys to whacked-out Pigtronix weirdness will be equally represented by PreSonus headphone amplifiers. More info on the footacular stompstravaganza is copy/pasted from their press release below. Call it "journalism."]

WHAT: StompBox Exhibit
WHEN: March 15-16, 2013
WHERE: Clayworks Gallery, 1209 E 6th St, Austin
AUSTIN, TX – After launching the “StompBox Exhibit” concept in 2011 – i.e. a compact display of guitar pedals which allows visitors to test and compare them in the headphones – and after the successes of the 2012 edition at Main Drag Music in Brooklyn – which saw 23 manufacturers and 5 sponsors involved – The Deli Magazine and Delicious Audio are presenting the first edition of the Austin StompBox Exhibit.
200+ Pedals in the “Live Music Capital of the World”
 

This free, interactive, in-the-headphones display of guitar pedals will coincide with the busiest days of the famous live music festival hosted by the Texan city every March. It’s scheduled for Friday and Saturday March 15 and 16 in a room facing Austin’s most frequented stroll: East 6th Street, in the middle of Austin’s East Side (the city’s “hipstery” neighborhood a few blocks East of downtown).

The exhibit will attract thousand of pro and semi-pro guitarists who will flood the Texas capital in search of gigs and exposure during the biggest live music event in the US. Musicians are invited to bring their own guitars and plug them in directly into the pedals (there will be demo guitars available). They will be able to test the pedals directly via headphones, which will be plugged into an amp emulation unit and a PreSonus headphone amp.

Sponsors and Participating Manufacturers

 

Headphones will be provided once again by Shure, amp emulation by Line6, pedal boards by PedalTrain, headphone preamps by PreSonus, Guitars by Reverend, cables by Planet Waves, guitar strings by D’Addario, and pedal power adapters by Visual Sound. Guitar accessories by Oknob will also be present.
