Sweetwater Minute Celebrates 100!

When the weekly Sweetwater Minute videos debuted back in October of 2009, the thought of posting our 100th episode seemed like an unattainable goal. But today we did just that, and we’re celebrating this milestone with an extra special installment featuring an interview with producer/engineer/recording artist Alan Parsons, shot during our recent GearFest ’11 event. Alan was here to give a workshop on recording and producing and graciously agreed to sit in on the filming of our 100th Minute.

To take a step back, just what is a Sweetwater Minute? It’s a weekly video show hosted by our own Editorial Director, Mitch Gallagher. The Sweetwater Minute features gear demos and updates, tours of the Sweetwater facility and company, and interviews with artists, producers, and engineers. A few of the notables who have appeared on the Sweetwater Minute include:


  • Joe Satriani
  • Stanley Clarke
  • Kenny Aronoff
  • David Grissom
  • Rob Ickes
  • Brad Davis
  • Mark Tremonti and Myles Kennedy (Alterbridge)
