After a long day of walking the show floor you’ll
find gear mag editors bellying up to a glass of
Bitberger Pils (or three) to rest their feet and
discuss what they saw. Inevitably, the conversation turns to buzzworthy matters. What are
people talking about? Which gear debuts are a
hit? Which companies are taking chances?
Some of that buzz involves products in
development—sometimes a manufacturer
will bring a prototype that isn’t quite ready
for the world but is a proof-of-concept for
something new. It can be helpful to show
such “gear in the works” to distributors,
retailers and other manufacturers in order to
map out future business.
There was also buzz about an automated
tuning-peg retrofit kit (much like the one on
the Gibson Robot guitar). The idea is that
people who think an auto-tuning guitar is a
good idea should be able to install a system on
their existing guitars instead of having to buy a
whole new guitar. Word has it the developer is
talking to major brands about the possibility of
offering the system as a factory feature, too.
