No less than 31 different guitar brands will be present. We mention brands such as Ibanez, Martin, Cort, Aristides, Crafter, Lâg and Hagstrom, and are very happy to see guitar makers showing their special guitars, such as Unquendor, Dejawu, Wout Bosma, KJ Band, Schotman Guitars and RH Guitars. Retailer Guitarking is showing their own brands and the special guitar brand Kauffmann.
There will also be amplifier brands such as Marshall, Vox, Laney, Blackstar, Van Laeck and Hughes & Kettner.
And the huge amount of guitar effects will amaze you, from Beetronics to Strymon, from MXR to Walrus, from Korg to IK Multimedia. They are all set up ready to try out! And if you're looking for a pedalboard, a new strap, in-ears or capos, you'll find them at the guitar fair!
