That Pedal Show – Gearmanndude At GuitCon 2017… And He Demos The D&M Drive!

Published on Nov 28, 2017

We. Are. Not. Worthy.
We had the great pleasure of meeting, nay… EXPERIENCING the great Gearmanndude at GuitCon 2017. In this video we get a little background from Eric (the human name he uses by day) on how he got into all this YouTube shizzazzle and some insight on his time in Tenacious D. Er, maybe.
Dan actually gets him to say ‘Hellooooo’ and ‘White coily cable’ whereupon the only way forward is for him to demo the Keeley D&M Drive, complete with Phil X’s signature guitar. What more could this video possibly offer?

If you’re not familiar with the phenomenon that is Gearmanndude, please check him out at

GuitCon is a fantastic event organised by the awesome Henning Pauly – – and the lovely people of Warwick & Framus in Germany –
We are indebted to them for their Herculean efforts in pulling this event together… and indeed in inviting us. May it be successful for decades to come!
