Steve Vai's Jam-a-thon

Join Steve Vai and Friends on Septmber 28th at noon through September 30th at 4pm for "The Big Mama Jama Jam-a-thon" -an open improvisational music/art event where the music doesn’t stop for 52 hours. Various professional and novice musicians, speakers, painters, celebrities, visual artists, poets, etc. from various genres are invited to support each other in an “in-the-moment” impromptu jam. The event will be streamed live worldwide through various cable TV stations, websites, and radio outlets.

Carvin Amps and Audio products will be auctioned at the event, and 100% of the Jam-a-thon profits will go towards raising funds and awareness for Extraordinary Families, a leading non-profit foster family adoption agency in the Los Angeles area, dedicated to improving the daily lives of children and youths in foster care. Steve currently serves on the board of E.F. These folks are extraordinary, and do vital work for families and children in L.A.

The event will be held at Musicians Institute’s brand-new auditorium, "The Live House" in the heart of Hollywood, California. The stage will be festooned with all sorts of musical gear and creative “toys” and visited on-and-off by all sorts of artists (including perhaps your good self).

X1 wins Gold Award from Guitar World Magazine

A GUITAR PREAMP can add new life to an amp by expanding an its tonal range, dynamics and performance. Even better is a versatile preamp like the Carvin X1 all-tube guitar preamp pedal that also sounds great on its own and can be used to drive a power amp for live performances or plugged directly into a recording system in the studio. While the Carvin X1 is packaged in a pedal format, it’s packed with features comparable to standalone multi-channel amps and professional preamp systems. When it comes to bang-for-the-buck and performance, the Carvin X1 is one of the most attractive preamps we’ve encountered recently.
