Looking to kick off a new annual event, the LA Amp Show will descend on Van Nuys, California, giving you a chance to hear boutique, custom, and prototype amplifiers in person at real-world levels. In addition to open floor space booths, there will be private demo rooms with no volume restrictions so the amps can be cranked to reveal their true potential.

The full schedule is still being put together, but expect to see appearances and performances by well-known artists, as well as giveaways of goodies from companies like AMT, Aphex, Duncan, Dunlop, Matchless, Groove Tubes, Hoffman, Rivera, Victoria, Voodoo, Vox, 65amps, Siegmund, Z-vex, Budda and more.

Also featured at the show will be technical guitar and bass amp forums with amp legends and gurus including Paul Rivera, Aspen Pittman, and Don Butler (more are expected as well). The technical forums will be moderated by Myles Rose of Guitar Amplifier Blueprinting.

The show will open Saturday May 7 at 10 AM at the Airtel Hotel in Van Nuys. The end time is yet to be announced.
