EV at Winter Namm 2006 - Highlights!

January 30th, 2006

There was a particular buzz around the new EVM12L Black Label guitar speaker, the signature speaker of metal guitar icon Zakk Wylde, and the new EV/Blue microphones, the Cardinal and Raven. With a huge five-feet diameter model of the EVM12L overhead, and a stage setup featuring custom cabinets loaded with Zakk’s speakers, along with sexy new additions to the ZX family of compact, high-performance speakers, the EV booth was rocking at every point in the signal path.

Beyond the booth, the Telex Pro Audio Group party at the House of Blues (co-sponsored with Framus, Visual Sound, Warwick and George L’s) after the first day of the show offered up a mixed bag of charismatic guitar talents, with bluesman Johnny Hawithorn, chicken pickin’ titan Johnny Hiland, all-female ACDC tribute outfit ThundHerstruck and surf guitar guru Dick Dale offering up a steady stream of stylistic contrasts - all of which made for one memorable evening.

Dick Dale and son Jimmy also made appearances to sign autographs at the booth. Funkmeister George Clinton and industrial metal merchants Static-X also stopped by to meet fans and represent their microphone and wireless brand of choice. Reggie Watts (Maktub, Soullive) took the stage for his stand up routine. Steve Brown (Stereo Fallout, ex-Trixter) performed crowd-pleasing classics and brought the stage PA (including ZX1 mains and the new Sb122 subs) to life with his formidable six-string chops. The EV/Blue Cardinal Steve used sounded as good as it looked. On the final day of the show ThundHerstruck drew perhaps the biggest booth crowd of the show with an unplugged set of ACDC classics.
