Need a great gear demo? Read on…
Doing demonstrations of bass gear has become an interesting niche that I’ve recently cultivated. I really enjoy doing them, and I think it shows. I’ve developed a format and a process for producing them, and my main goal is to always show off the piece of gear and what it can do in the best possible light. I want to give potential customers a real clear picture of what the gear can do, in case they can’t try before they buy! I believe a great demo can be far more powerful and effective than say, a magazine ad. I like to think of the demos as a service to both the manufacturer and the consumer.
The video demos I do generally take me two days to produce. I do all the audio and video recording, engineering and editing myself. To start each video, I usually compose and record an original piece of music (or occasionally a great cover) that showcases the gear, and get people interested to hear more. I then get into describing features and demonstrating the gear. I try to keep the talking to a minimum- I’ve learned over time that people want to HEAR the gear, not hear me talk and talk some more! The videos generally end up being from 6-10 minutes in length.I can provide you with an HD video file once the demo is completed, so you can upload it wherever you like, and I usually upload it to my Youtube channel as well. In this age of online shopping (where customers may not have ability to try before you buy), I believe a great demo can be the most important marketing ingredient in getting the word out.
