Every year Guitar Workshop Plus and our sponsors give away prizes to lucky attendees. Here are just some of the giveaways we have done at past sessions:

Godin – Dorchester

With its stunning vintage good looks and cool retro styling, the Godin Richmond Dorchester will definitely turn heads. But the best part…it sounds even better than it looks!

This Tone Giant features a 25 ½” scale, two classic sounding Lace Alumitone humbucker pickups, housed in a double cutaway chambered body with a silver leaf maple center and poplar wings. The pickups are controlled by separate volume and tone knobs, along with a 4-way switch that allows you to select between various tantalizing sounds, including the first position which enables the neck & bridge to be in-series, giving the player a fatter tone and more output.

Sennheiser – e906 Microphone

The e 906 captures the guitar sound just as you want it to be: from clean to distorted, from gentle to aggressive. It provides a high-resolution, natural sound without unwanted coloration. The transient response of the e 906 convinces in every style: it even transmits riffs with an extremely hard punch directly and straightforward.

The microphone features a switchable presence filter with three sound characteristic options: one to boost the presence range, one for “normal” presence and one to attenuate the presence range. Thanks to its flat shape, it can be positioned in front of the amp hanging from its cable – completely without a stand. Not to mention its distinctly rugged design.

Sennheiser – HD280 Pro Headphones

The HD 280 PRO are closed-back, circumaural headphones designed for professional monitoring applications.

Due to its robust construction and excellent shielding, these are not only ideal for a very wide range of applications; the special 32 dB attenuation of external noise allows it to be used in a high-noise environment. So party on and let quality music flow into your ears.
