In March, The Deli’s Stompbox Exhibit — a free, interactive, in-the-headphones display of guitar effect pedals — will travel to Austin for its first official involvement in the SXSW Music Gear Expo.

The exhibit, which will feature dozens of stompbox manufacturers, will be co-presented by Guitar World and sponsored by Washburn, Shure, PreSonus and Pedal Genie. Pedaltrain — although not an official sponsor — will provide pedalboards and power.

Here are all the details you need. Just bring your guitars!

WHEN: 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. March 13 to 15
WHERE: Austin Convention Center, 500 E. Cesar Chavez St., Austin, Texas
HOW MUCH: Free; open to the public. No SXSW badge is necessary to attend.
HOW IT WORKS: Musicians are invited to bring their own guitars and plug them in directly into the stomp boxes. If you don’t have your six string with you, you’ll be able to borrow a Washburn guitar. Pedals will be organized on StompBlox boards and connected to Shure headphones fed by PreSonus headphone preamps.
