************ 2015-2016 EDITIONS (Brooklyn + SXSW) ************

“Overall, I thought it went great! I was incredibly surprised by the amount of traffic both at the SBE and specifically at our booth. I think that having everyone walk around with guitars and listen via headphones was a really genius way to organize the event, and those AmpliFIRE modelers sounded great.”
Brad Thorla, EarthQuaker Devices

“For the size of the venue it was pretty solidly busy. There were many people filtering in and out throughout the day.” 
Rik, Electro Harmonix

“I thought the traffic was exceptional on both days.”
Peter Swiadon, BOSS

“I thought it was very brisk, not much time was spent without someone playing our pedals or chatting with me. Great location, geographically and culturally. Very helpful staff as well. Not sure it could have been improved other than the heat!!!”
Holly, Chase Bliss Audio

“As a small manufacturer of effects pedals with limited means, one of the most important thing for us is to have as many people as possible try our pedals. Paolo and his team at the Stompbox Exhibit have been making this possible for us since 2012 and with each show, more ears are present to hear what we’re all about.”
Guillaume Fairfield, Fairfield Circuitry

“Paolo, you organize guitar show where people actually show up!”
Lloyd, Tech 21

“…the last SXSW was a huge success, the amount of attendees through the Stompbox Exhibit was almost overwhelming at times. Which is great! Even Adrian Belew dropped by a few times.”
Russell Gray, TC Electronic

“We’re big fans of the Stompbox Exhibit. It’s a great way for us to connect with musicians and provide an opportunity to really dig into our gear.”
Ethan Tufts, Strymon

“[The SXSW Stompbox Exhibit] was great! The space was excellent […] It was beyond expectation for me. It was like NAMM in a lot of ways, except without the constant noise level.”
Nathan Wilson, T-Rex

“I thought the traffic was really good [at the Brooklyn show], […] people were using [our board] from opening until when I left.
Mike Piera, Analog Man

“I think [the Brooklyn show] was a successful event! It’s always nice talking to customers, and I got some good testimonial video footage at the event.”

“Stompbox Exhibits are an excellent way for small pedal companies to get their products in front of players”
Orin Portnoy, Mod Kits DIY

“We were very pleased to have JangleBox pedals at the 6th Brooklyn Stompbox Exhibit.  It’s great that a lot guitar players got a chance to try our terrific new J-Boost clean booster coupled with one (or more!) of our JangleBox compressors. We plan to be at Summer NAMM 2017, and have a presence at other music instrument showcases via The Deli. We’re hard at work on a terrific new pedal for 2017 — but we’re still in development, so we don’t want to spill the beans quite yet!”
Steve – JangleBox

“Overall, the [SXSW] experience was great, exactly what was promised was delivered.”
Scott Dunmire, MC Systems

************ 2012 EDITION ************

“Really, the exhibit was a pleasure to be part of. Easy load in/out. The folks at Main Drag know their stuff, and were there to help every step of the way. On behalf of Pigtronix the annual stompbox exhibit was really a lot of fun and a great way to spend a Friday/Saturday.
The turnout was great, it was better than we hoped it would be. Other than having a live webcast of cool parts of the show- I think you are doing the right things. Create a positive vibe, and the customers will come.”
Mike McAndrew, Pigtronix
