Second ever UK YouTuber Guitar Event:
Following the great success of the first #BBGFest, we did it again and will do at least two per year, a Winter and a Summer BBGFest, just like NAMM.

So while we were the first we are also the second ever YouTuber guitar event in the UK and this time we have the originator of the whole concept joining us
Mr. Henning Pauly of EytschPi42

We now have all of the YouTubers and Companies attending the Winter 2022 festival. If you are keen to get involved in the summer BBGF3 let us know as we are now completely full for the Winter BBGF2, get in early to avoid disappointment.

About the Festival

This is what happens when you put two seasoned guitar show visitors together who happen to be a luthier and a YouTuber. We have taken all the best bits we enjoy about the various annual guitar shows and put them together while removing all the bits we don't like.

Here are all the videos from the BBGFest #2

DJW Guitars

DJW Guitars

DJW Guitars started in Thakeham, West Sussex, UK, in 2010. The instruments are my own designs, but nod towards the classic guitar shapes. My guitars are crafted largely by hand using traditional tools, but some aspects of the build are far more efficiently handled with the help of a router, drill, or bandsaw. The critical aspect is to maintain a feel for the wood and how it is suited to it's particular purpose - tone, strength, stability etc.

I’m Jake, the founder of Parkhurst Guitars and No. 19 Pickups.
I’ve had a huge interest in guitars and woodwork from a very young age, as I grew up I decided that I wanted to build and service guitars. I’ve always found great satisfaction in taking an instrument that needs love, and giving it the TLC it deserves to getting it playing beautifully again!

Maybury Guitars

Maybury Guitars

Using quality woods and built with an attention to detail that you do not get with a mass produced guitar, you will feel special every time you play your Maybury.

Calling on the classic influences of the 50s and 60s, the guitars are both nostalgic yet different and as each guitar is individually built, the guitar is as unique as the person that owns and plays it.

Zander Circuitry

Zander Circuitry

I started making pedals as a hobby, they’d be very basic clones of old fuzz circuits etc in plain enclosures with unevenly drilled holes. But even back then people seemed to like what we were doing and that gave us the confidence and encouragement to continue. After a while I decided to but a brand name behind it and the rest, as they say, is history.

Magma Amplification

Magma Amplification

Not everyone has the luxury of having a rehearsal room or recording space in their home’s to keep musical gear separate from their living space. Some of us have to share that space with our partners, kids or parents requiring us to think about the use of colour and design to tie into our houses interior.

We don’t all want a black box of doom sitting in the corner of our living room. Its about time we think about our amps and speaker cabinets as pieces of furniture, well designed, aesthetically elegant with the choice of finish to match and naturally nestle into its surroundings.

For music to remain relevant, it needs to evolve, and therefore so do the instruments we play. At Goodwin-sonic we have embarked on a quest to revisit component designs and find ways to improve their sonic performance, as well as ergonomics and cosmetic appeal.

This is all so that you, the musician of today, can find new ways to express your artistic vision, to find your voice and be heard.
