Sunday, November 10, 2019 - 12pm doors, 12pm show
all ages
$5 day of show
One year ago, we published our Made In Portland issue, highlighting the enormous, but often overlooked, role that instrument and gear manufacturers play in our music scene. From basement workshops to internationally recognized artisans, there are at least 100 makers already sounding the alarm—and it’s time for our entire city to take notice! Local industry advocacy group MusicPortland will unite the area’s best and brightest builders under one roof for the greatest exposition of locally made machines of music that the Rose City has ever seen. Try out Ear Trumpet Labs’ handcrafted mics, turn Benson Amps up to 11, and explore how CymaSpace fuses light and sound to create immersive, multi-sensory experiences—plus get your mitts on drums, guitars, pedals, synths, cables and studio gear. And meet the people who invent, craft and assemble all of these goods. It all goes down from noon to 6pm and the cost is only $5 cash at the door or $6 with a card. Beer, wine and eats from local food trucks will also be available. With two floors of boutique gear and instruments, think of it like the NAMM of Portland.
