Our first London Synth & Pedal Expo, hosted on Saturday, March 18 at Hackney’s Motel Studios, was attended by more than 1,200 visitors.
You can see pictures of the event here (pedal room) and here (synth room). We gathered feedback from the vendors here (it’s pretty great!).
Stefan Karlsson, whose pedal blog GuitarPedalX was one of the event’s media partners, posted a very detailed report focused on the pedal room here, while Jules Standen of Gearspace.com, also a media partner, posted this report mostly focused on the synth room.
Thanks to all the visitors and vendors, we’ll be back in 2023 in a bigger venue and a two-day event!
Delicious Audio, KMR Audio, Regent Sounds, and Blicken Synths are the proud sponsors of the 1st edition of The London Synth & Pedal Expo, a free for all interactive marketplace of synthesizers and guitar effect pedals.
