Fishman Acoustic Amplification was both a sponsor and exhibitor at the recent Woodstock Invitational Luthiers Showcase.
Billed as “an alternative guitar show” and held at the Bearsville Theater and Utopia Soundstage, the event was an ideal setting for luthiers to exhibit the highest quality, handmade acoustic guitars and stringed musical instruments. It also featured continuous live music performances, Luthier mini-concerts and special appearances by leading artists.
The Showcase provides a unique opportunity for the public to see, play and experience instruments not generally available in music stores and other retail environments and meet with their makers to discuss custom options for their ultimate “dream instrument.”
More than fifty exhibitors attended the showcase this year, including makers, wood dealers, parts and tool suppliers, inlay artists, lutherie schools and services, string and accessories manufacturers and sponsors such as Fishman.
A popular stop with attendees, Fishman got a positive response with the Loudbox Artist, and Loudbox Mini acoustic amps, the SA220 Solo Performance System, Aura Spectrum DI, Matrix Infinity, Rare Earth and the new Blackstack pickups.
Asked about Fishman’s participation in the Woodstock Invitational, Director of Marketing and Artist Relations Chris DeMaria stated, “This show provides a great opportunity for Fishman to present acoustic amplification options to both the luthiers and attendees.
“With a show this size, you really get to take the time and talk to people in depth about Fishman products for their one-of-a-kind instrument. The number of people who came by to tell us how much they loved the Loudbox amps was amazing.”
