I didn't hear much from either amplifier company and I was really looking forward to seeing new products from them. I read on Firewind's official website that Gus G. would be debuting his new signature Randall amp (Heaven & Hell) and that's about all the information I got; no specs. As for ENGL, I've heard nothing! I really wanted to see another amazing amp added to their already great line up. Anybody have any info on these companies?

Guitar-wise, I wasn't so happy. ESP debuted some nice looking models, but no V-STD standard (at least in the US).
