Darkglass gets good company for NAMM 2019
It’s January and you know what that means The NAMM Show in Anaheim California is on its way and Darkglass is getting ready to unveil a few surprises. “This year’s NAMM will be a very exciting one” says Doug Castro. “Along with two new products, we will actually have two booths”, he adds, as KORG USA is officially our distributor in that territory and we will be present in their booth as well. “It’s a bit stressful because our announcements are quite ambitious”, Doug tells us, “but I am confident that everyone will be delighted by what we have to offer!”.
We won’t be alone at the Anaheim Convention Center, as some Darkglass artists will join us during this 4-day event; Sarah Longfield, Kilian Duarte, Kyle Konkiel, Jeff Hughell, Jared Smith and Jacob Umansky will be hitting our booth, performing and talking to all Darkglass fans. “It’s really been amazing watching a company go from a smaller “boutique” company to something I now consider an industry standard when it comes to bass” says Kyle Konkiel from Bad Wolves, “every year since I joined the Darkglass family, they have come out with more and more amazing products I can’t wait to see what else Doug and the crew at Darkglass can come up with!”
“I’m very excited to be performing at the Darkglass booth at Namm 2019”, adds Jeff Hughell from Six Feet Under, “I’ll be showcasing some of their amazing pedals and giving everyone a taste of the madness of my upcoming solo album!”. Jared Smith shares the feeling, “Darkglass continues to set the bar higher with every piece of gear they create and I’m excited to have the opportunity to showcase some Archspire songs with their newest releases”.
“The X7 is the cornerstone of my tone for both the Abiotic and Sarah Longfield NAMM demos” says Kilian Duarte, who will also join us at the Darkglass booth and is working with some of his fellow musicians for the showcase. “Regardless of what band I am playing in, I can count on Darkglass to deliver the perfect tone and durable equipment for the road and studio” he adds, “all the equipment is built like tanks, sounds unbelievable and the artist relations are top notch”. “I can’t’ wait to see you all there” shares Jacob Umansky, “I’ll be playing material from INTERVALS, a song from the upcoming AURAS record, and a track from my new project JIA”.
“NAMM is always a chance to reunite with industry friends, make new ones and expand our business to make sure we can grow and provide better products to more users” says Doug about what to expect, leaving the invitation open for January 24-27, “Please make sure to stop by our booth, #3144 and say hi!”
