BMG Supports The RSBC

Monday, 31 July 2017  |  Admin

Dr. Brian May and BMG recently provided the Royal Society for Blind Children with a pair of signed BMG instruments for a fundraising auction and were thrilled to receive this message from event organiser Kevin McNulty...

"I thought I would let you know that the two signed Brian May guitars sold for £2,150, which is enough money to pay for one of our family engagement workers to support 2 blind children and their families for a year.

As well as this, there is also enough money to pay for 2 blind young people to take part in one of our away-days where they take on challenges such as climbing walls and assault courses. This builds their confidence and resilience."

One of the instruments is pictured right at a recent RSBC "Winefold Challenge" - a wine tasting event with a twist that has inspired the charity's latest national public fundraising campaign which invites everyone to raise money to support the amazing work of the RSBC by organising their very own Winefold Challenge.

All you will need are some friends, some wine and your free Winefold Challenge kit which is available by registering for free HERE on the RSBC website.

Inside the kit is all the information you need to host your own event including advice on planning the night, a comprehensive wine guide and ideas for fundraising for your memorable evening.

With your help, the RSBC can try and ensure that no child in the UK grows up to be poor or lonely, just because they are blind.

Brazilian Rhapsody

Tuesday, 28 June 2016  |  Admin

A must-share video direct from the stage of the brand new production of We Will Rock You show in São Paulo, where the twin BMG Special axe attack of guitarists Lucas Vianna and Fábio Stamato has been the subject of lavish praise... and it looks like they're having the time of their lives!


The Ultimate BMG Special Review?

Thursday, 9 June 2016  |  Admin

A huge shout-out to young Brazilian guitarist Lucas Vianna for a quite superb review of the BMG Special that may well prove to be the ultimate guide to this amazingly versatile instrument.

Currently principal guitarist in the new Brazilian production of We Will Rock You in São Paulo, Lucas evidently knows his way around this guitar and - courtesy of some slick graphics and his exemplary technique - does a excellent job of breaking down the idiosyncrasies of the BM switching system. But what makes this professionally produced video so darn entertaining is the way he demonstrates just how jaw-droppingly protean the Special truly is.

Of course, the Queen-style voicings are spot on, thank you very much, but the real fun is hearing Lucas using the Special to deliver seriously authentic takes on David Gilmour's "Time" solo, Jimmy Page's feral rhythm tone from "Whole Lotta Love" and the distinctive riffs from Dire Straits' "Money For Nothing", Deep Purple's "Burn" and Kurt Cobain's alt-rock anthem "Smells Like Teen Spirit".

We've long maintained that there really is no guitar from any manufacturer at this price that delivers as much as the Special - this video demonstrates that point perfectly and is essential viewing for anybody still on the fence about buying one.
