What began as a small group of friends debating guitar gear on Facebook has grown to a community of thousands, many of whom will gather in Atlanta on May 11 for the Gear Talk Expo 2013.
The second annual Gear Talk Expo will bring together builders, dealers, and musicians to buy, sell, and trade their gear. This year, expanding from it’s roots as a get together for guitarists and bassists, GTE2013 is teaming up with ATL Drum Collective, for a larger and more diverse show than last year.
Gear Talk was initially founded online by Atlanta guitarist Lance Seymour, who created Facebook groups where friends could geek out about the tools of their trade. Word quickly spread through the social network, and the Gear Talk community has grown to over 7,000 active members and more than 40 subgroups covering specialties like Gear Talk Praise & Worship, Gear Talk Pro, Gear Talk: Marketplace and dozens of regional groups to help connect nearby musicians.
