Swart Amplifier Company

Michael Swart started building custom tube amps to get the exact tone he wanted. The original Space Tone is as a result of this need for a small studio or home amp that could provide BIG tone with quality distortion when needed. The Atomic Space Tone followed and the rest is history.  Swart Amps returns this year as a second time sponsor/exhibitor of SEGAS!

SEGAS Sponsored Raleigh Music Academy Clinic

Hi Everyone,

We are very happy to announce that the amazing Vinnie Moore will be visiting the Raleigh Music Academy on April 9th and will lead a Master Class at 2:30 and then hold a performance clinic at 7:30 that evening.  In the Master Class, you will have a chance to jam on stage with Vinnie and learn directly from him – a RARE opportunity!  And during his evening clinic he will perform and take questions about his years of playing and touring.  Vinnie has a huge solo career under his belt, was once the guitarist for Alice Cooper, and is currently lead guitarist for the legendary band UFO.  You can register for this event by visiting http://rmaweb.com/vinniemoore.html.

You can check out some of Vinnie’s playing here on Youtube:

We are putting on this event in association with the Southeastern Guitar & Amp Show (http://www.guitarandampshow.com) and have made it VERY affordable to come learn from a world class player like Vinnie.  For less than the price of one guitar lesson you can come watch Vinnie play and take questions for an hour and a half.  This is truly one of the best lessons you can ever buy yourself!  Even if you aren’t familiar with his music, you do not want to miss out on such a monster player who is also a great guy to learn from.  You will learn so much and gain lots of inspiration and ideas for your own playing.

There will also be special giveaways from our sponsors – Xotic Effects (http://www.xoticeffects.com) and Jim Dunlop (http://www.jimdunlop.com).  We appreciate those companies making this an extra special event.

Tickets will go quickly, so please register now at http://rmaweb.com/vinniemoore.html or call us at 919-878-3338.

Thank you and see you there!
