Well this is very cool, and quite a suprise, but we are very proud to announce that the GigRig ltd was selected as a finalist in this year’s engineering excellence awards... who knew!
This is a quote from BEEA... 'The GigRig was selected for two main reasons... As a new company the GigRig ltd has demonstrated engineering excellence and innovation based precisely at customers needs... The other attribute that impressed the Judges, was the GigRigs attention to the environment, not just with Compliance to standards and re cycling, but with the patented invention of the Virtual battery'.. “The virtual battery will remove 100,000 PP3 Batteries from the environment every year”.. Said Kate Bellingham, former tomorrows world presenter and journalist, in her presentation of the final five companies.
Now i'm just waiting for the knighthood!!!

Amidst the chaos and stress of getting ready for NAMM I recieved an email from a client thanking me for the advice on puting his dream pedal board together. We get a lot of similar emails but I'm grateful for each one because I know how much it means to them. Getting to a point where your sound is your voice is a real moment in any guitarist's career. I've been fortunate enough to do thousands of different gigs from stadiums to boozers all over the world and if there is one thing I know its that when my tone is on form it has a tangible effect on people, a connection is made. And if my sound was off, the opposite was true. I've seen great players miss out on gigs because their tone was off. I have personally got gigs over much better players with better hair because of perceived tonal quality. People, this stuff is important. TheGigRig was not born from a business plan, but from my own efforts to improve my own sound, but I've met so many players who share my passion. I'm still learning new things every day because its a journey. But I can say that once you experience great tone, it can literally change your life.
