Five years ago, we published a video presentation of the GEWA G9 drum workstation (see: HERE) which we had filmed at Musikmesse Frankfurt 2018, where it was premiered. GEWA eventually started shipping and the long-awaited drum module started to hit music stores two years later. Since then, not only the flagship model, but also more budget-friendly versions of the module and the kit itself have found their way to the market.
Next week, there is an event related to the product which should be of interest to all the drum maniacs based or stopping by in Croatia and thereabout. The Polish GEWA artist, Mariusz Mocarski, will host a presentation of the GEWA G3 Studio electronic drum kit. Mariusz will also be available for individual GEWA G3 Studio training.
- Time: Wednesday, March 8, 2023, 2:00pm – 5:00pm
- Place: Music Centar, Zagreb, Croatia
