Blood, Sweat & Tubes Fall 2018 Clinic Tour
We’re excited to share that this month Dave Friedman is headed to select cities in the Northeast and Midwest to conduct in-store clinics with Friedman retailers. Dave will be joined at each stop by Friedman artist Sammy Boller, and on limited dates by Steven Stevens (see below for full info) to help demo and discuss products. Each clinic is an opportunity to find out more about Friedman products and get insights into Dave’s design inspiration and process, get in-depth knowledge about our newest releases and hear some killer playing! The clinic tour is falling right between two new pedal releases, the Gold-72 Wah which is available now, and the Golden Pearl, coming next month. Dave will be discussing these pedals as well as other new and established products, so get your questions ready! We’re starting out in Cleveland on October 13th, and traveling East from there, then heading to Chicago and ending in Dave’s hometown, Detroit. We’re called these store visits the Blood, Sweat & Tubes clinic tour because that encapsulates the work & passion Dave puts into Friedman every day, and we can’t wait to bring it out to all of you.
What to Expect
The schedule, including dates, times and locations is below, but we strongly recommend that you contact your retailer for information such as RSVP’s, arrival times and anything else you may need to know about the event. Each clinic will be about 2 hours long, and will include a performance by the Friedman artist(s) in attending, a Q&A, Product Spotlight and Meet & Greet, AND a Raffle/Giveaway.
12AX7 TUBE POWERED PEDAL!
Designed by legendary tone guru Dave Friedman, the Motor City Drive utilizes an actual high-voltage (220-volt) 12AX7A preamp tube to deliver a fantastically smooth, organic feel. The 12AX7 tube naturally compresses, clips and adds complexity to create a more harmonically rich tone than most transistor or digital devices.
Named after Dave Friedman's home town, the Motor City Drive delivers rich tube tone that takes you from light overdrive to rich higher gain tones with incredible sustain.
