January 2nd, 2018 - New York City - Boutique bass amp designer Epifani will be at the 2018 NAMM show, but not in the usual way. Instead of a standard display, Epifani will focus on supporting a few of its premiere partners and players. Fans of the world famous high-end brand will be able to see and hear the new TOUR cabinets and Piccolo amps put to the test in live playing situations.
Fodera, Ken Smith, and Modulus
Epifani will show off its latest line of bass cabinets and amplifiers along with some of the best basses in the world including Fodera, Ken Smith, and Modulus. These booths will be equipped with a compliment of 1x12, 2x10, 3x10, and 4x10 TOUR and D.I.S.T. cabinets, as well as the new Piccolo 333 and Piccolo 555 amplifiers (pictured right).
Epifani will also be on hand to support performances by two Epifani Premier Artists: Reggie Young and Kevin “KJ” Jacoby. These two accomplished bassists will put the new TOUR 410 cabinets and Piccolo 555 amplifiers to the ultimate test.
“Players are the most important part of Epifani,” said Nick Epifani. “Everything we do is for them—every feature, every design, every assurance that they can rely on their Epifani gear no matter what.”
Reggie Young is a veteran R&B bassist who boasts an impressive resume that includes names like Lenny Kravitz, Stevie Wonder, and Alecia Keys. Reggie will be part of the annual Bass Bash this year, joining fellow legendary low-enders including John Pattituci, Abraham Laboriel, and Bakithi Kumalo.
Reggie and his band will perform at 8:30pm on Thursday, January 25 at The Phoenix Club in Anaheim, CA.
KJ will appear live with DJ Johnny Juice, a hip-hop legend who was recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with his former band Public Enemy.
KJ and Johnny Juice have a new project called The Oddysy which will perform as part of a TEC Talk presented by the TEC Awards organization.
The masterclass and performance will be sponsored by Epifani, Sennheiser, Ableton, Roland, and Fodera. It will be held at 1pm on Sunday, January 28 in the El Capitan Room on the 4th floor of the Anaheim Hilton hotel.
NAMM show attendees will be able to try the new TOUR cabinets and Piccolo amps that have been in high demand the world over since their introduction to great critical acclaim in 2017.
