WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA, November 17, 2009 — Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users, recently announced the winner in its inaugural online sweepstakes at www.gcpro.com. Taylor Feldpausch of East Lansing, Michigan, was randomly selected among the entrant pool to receive a Solid State Logic XLogic Alpha Channel, a $995.00 value. This unit offers state-of-the-art analog channel processing for any audio workstation; professional mic preamp with line and instrument level switching; studio-class EQ, Filter and Limiter; Variable Harmonic Drive (in other words, a “time machine” of distortion characteristics); and analog or digital outputs direct to users' workstations.

As part of its ongoing sweepstakes series, several times a year, GC Pro management will select one particular product from a high-end gear manufacturer to feature on the website and give away as that sweepstakes prize. The second contest, currently running through December 31, features a Royer R-121 Ribbon Microphone. To enter the contest, users simply go to gcpro.com and click on the “Sweepstakes” tab. There, entrants will complete and submit a short entry form. The winner will then be selected at random after the contest has wrapped. For complete rules and more information, please visit www.gcpro.com.
