Hear more shows like this at Audio is a collective of artists, musicians and engineers attempting to find the balance between art and performance in sound manipulation. Throughout the years we have been inspired by sounds created by our favorite companies: the perfect breakup on an overdrive; a thick, punchy distortion; an endlessly sustained reverb; a self-oscillating delay. We had to give it a shot. Through many months of late night breadboarding sessions, circuit problem-solving, and sonic tweaking we have come up with a range of guitar pedals as versatile as they are functional. From smooth fuzz to cutting overdrive, our attempts have been to highlight the functions that we would want from these particular sounds. Once we had an accurate idea of the sounds we were creating, we then tried to capture the feel and representation of the pedals through their individual artwork. This process was made possible by Oklahoma artist and musician Nathan Price. Taking stylistic inspiration from classically animated films and using freehand sketching, Nathan has perfectly captured what our pedals should look like. It is our goal to make guitar effects that are as interesting to play as they are to look at. So that’s what we are going to

Godin guitars are assembled in our Richmond, Quebec and Berlin, New Hampshire factories. The necks and bodies are all made in our original location in La Patrie, Quebec.We are also known for our other brands which include our acoustic guitar lines: Seagull, Simon & Patrick, Norman, LaPatrie and Art & Lutherie. We are also the manufacturer of the revolutionary TRIC case provided unparalleled protection for your guitar.All over the world guitar players are making exciting new music that explores new techniques and defies categorization. All of this new guitar music is complemented by the guitars’ almost limitless capacity for variation in design. Unlike most other instruments, which have followed the same design parameters for decades, the modern guitar continues to evolve. We are constantly reviewing and refining the techniques employed to craft them, the materials used to build them, and the integration of the latest developments in related electronics. Exploring these possibilities is what Godin is all about. Our goal with each Godin guitar is to find the perfect balance between the finest traditions of guitar crafting and the new design concepts that we are developing. After 25 years of guitar building we still hand-finish the necks on every Godin guitar. In fact, from fretting to sanding, there is more handwork in our guitars than you would find in most custom shops. From the selection of the wood to the final adjustments on the finished instrument, each Godin guitar is designed and built by people who love guitars.

Sam Systems 2012 Ltd was formed in the UK in 2012 as it`s title suggests. The company was created to design, test and manufacture a new concept in close miking for Guitar combos and speaker cabs and the product subsequently came into being and was branded INTEGRAL. The brand was first launched at the Frankfurt MusikMesse in 2017 to great acclaim with product becoming available in July of that year. The period of time from the company being formed to being in production was spent in development, followed by some four years of road testing with 3D printed samples before we were happy to commit to tooling up for production. The first units were designed specifically to fit 10” (IM10) and 12” (IM12) speakers and will fit any make. Other designs are under development for the future.In short, INTEGRAL utilises a dynamic mic with a super-cardiod pattern that is aimed off-axis to the speaker cone and which is set within a centrally mounted hub. Within the hub, and underneath a perforated domed cover, is a capsule aimed at the speaker sweetspot. This hub is supported by a ring that matches the speaker diameter & fixings and is 3.00mm thick, rather like a gasket. The gasket is sandwiched between the rim of the speaker and the sound board utilising the same bolts or screws that hold the speaker in place. Thus it is no longer floor mounted on a stand, is protected from overspill, is always in the right place and requires no set up time once installed in the cab. Consequently it gives a consistent performance from gig to gig prompting the same comment from the various media reviews “Why has this not been done before?”Richard Smith, is the Technical Director and founding member of the company. Following a spell in the Royal Navy as an engineer he followed a path which led to designing Gas and Oil firing burner equipment. But, in a radical change of direction, he was drawn into the music industry when out of frustration of not being heard when playing in his band, he created the first onboard amplified and subsequently, wireless harmonicas. This journey took him around the world where he met the most interesting, quirky and generally great people. More importantly, this set him up with various contacts worldwide enabling him to perform his present role. Within Sam Systems his job has been to create INTEGRAL from an original concept and take it through to being the finished product we now see being so successful in many countries.
