PRESS RELEASE: Schecter Guitar Research and Wylde Audio announce signing a world-wide distribution deal.   Schecter will distribute Wylde Guitars, the creation of legendary guitarist Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society, Ozzy Osbourne), via their distributor network covering over 70 countries, which also includes handling fulfillment of the guitars in the USA.

“We are extremely proud to be working with Zakk and Wylde Audio on this endeavor,” states Schecter Guitar Research Executive Vice-president Marc LaCorte. “Zakk has been incredible in recognizing what he wanted in his own brand and bringing the best possible product to the market.”

The first offering from Wylde Audio, including the Odin, War Hammer and Viking models, are set to debut at the 2016 Winter NAMM.  Zakk has already been putting the prototypes through their paces at recent Black Label Society shows. “I’m very excited for the launch of Wylde Audio in 2016,” Wylde states.  “For me, it’s the next logical step. You start as a player, manager, VP of Team Operations, then Team Owner.  I’ve surrounded myself with super talented people to make this vision become a reality and having Schecter on board as our distributor is going to allow me to bring Wylde Audio’s boutique quality of craftsmanship to the next level.”

Visit the Schecter Guitar Research booth 210D during the 2016 Winter NAMM show to see these in person. Zakk Wylde will also be conducting a private press conference inside the Schecter/NAMM booth 210D at 5:00pm on Friday, January 22, 2016.

Zakk Wylde has long been one of Gibson and Marshall’s most popular artists. The very idea of Zakk leaving either for another company at this stage seems utterly unbelievable. But that’s what’s happened: it’s just that Zakk hasn’t taken his considerable endorsement weight to other guitar and amp brands. He’s created his own instead. Wylde Audio will make guitars, amps, effects and all sorts of accessories. I caught up with Zakk to find out what’s what. Read More …
