Metalheads' Bass Gear Hang with Steve DiGiorgio & Bjorn Englen
We invite all metalheads and bass players to gather around the campfire at the EBS NAMM booth with seasoned bass players Steve DiGiorgio and Bjorn Englen to talk about bass gear in metal.
Both are long-time EBS artists with experience from numerous tours and recording sessions with metal and hard rock royalties like Testament, Megadeth, Death, Uli Jon Roth, Yngwie Malmsteen, Quiet Riot, and more.
The event will happen at the EBS booth (5441) on Friday, January 26, from 1 PM to 2 PM.
Note: This is not a signing event but an invitation to gather insights and tips about gear and bass playing in metal and rock music from these two artists and staff from EBS. A separate signing with Steve, Bjorn, and Marten Andersson from Lita Ford's band will happen on Saturday at 3 PM.
