Osiamo enjoyed another successful showing at the Brooklyn Autumn Guitar Show. We were graced with appearances by Mooer endorsers John Bendy, Jon Diaz and Danny Muniz as well as Pickboy Endorser Christian Colabelli.

These little Mooer micro pedals are gaining BIG market share. More and more consumers arrive at the booth already aware of the Mooer product line. The Mooer Little Monster AC 5 watt, class A, all tube amp was also very well received.

We look forward to our next regional show at Valley Forge, PA in Nov.

Exclusive Interview with Johnny Reno Prentice

Tell us about your musical background
My whole family are professional musicians, so I grew up surrounded by music and musicians. I didn’t get interested until I was 12, and I wanted to play the real guitar because I sucked at Guitar Hero. Once I started being able to play just a little, it became all I wanted to do, and I played all the time, even gave my PS2 away so I’d spend more time on the guitar! I started going to a lot of recording sessions with my Dad and all these amazing, world class guitar players were really cool to me and very supportive. I still learn a lot from them.

What are you working on now?
My main project is my own band, the BOY WONDER BAND, (www.boywonderband.com) where I get to play with a total badass band of seasoned pros, who are all like family, except for my brother, who IS my family. We play regularly at BB King’s in Nashville and it’s made me have to learn how to think on my feet and manage my energy for a four hour gig. I’m also trying to get comfortable with all the genres of music like jazz, fusion, country, funk, R&B and soul music.

What is the role of education in music?
I always hated school, but I like learning… well, guitar at least. I’m home schooled and so I’m kinda in music school all the time, minus the girls, for now. For real, I spend at least five hours a day playing. Unlike regular school, I also get to study with really great musicians and music is what I want to do for a living anyway. Other than playing the guitar, I’m kinda useless, so it’s a good thing I have a regular gig!

How do you feel about the current ‘state of the music industry’?
That doesn’t really concern me yet and my total focus is on being the best player I can possibly be. All my mentors tell me that’s the only important thing at this point.

Why do use Mooer pedals?
1) they sound awesome,
2) they are tiny,
3) they’re TRUE BYPASS!!!!! and
4) Rawn is easily one of the the coolest guys out there!

Mooer Micro Pedals

NEW YORK, NY – May 21, 2012 – At Summer NAMM 2012 Osiamo LLC introduces to the US market Mooer Micro effect pedals. The micro pedals feature compact size (about 1/2 the size of a standard pedal), true bypass switching and utilizing many rare or difficult to find chips that replicate classic pedals effects, sounds and tones. Mooer Micro pedals have a suggested retail of $99 and are sure to be a hit with players looking to add just one more pedal to their already crowded pedals boards.

The current lineup includes the Ana Echo (analog delay), Black Secret (distortion), Blade (distortion), Cruncher (high gain distortion), Ensemble King (chorus), Green Mile (overdrive), Hustle Drive (drive), Pitch Box (harmony/pitch shift), Shim Verb (digital reverb), and the Ultra Drive (distortion). Mooer has plans to add 40 pedals to the line for a total of 50 pedals.

The compact size, light weight, quality sound and low price make this a sure hit for the 2012 holiday season and beyond.
