“‘Metal Masters’ started out as two bassists teaching a clinic and has gone on to become a spectacle that includes some of the greatest musicians that defined a genre,” says Samson’s director of marketing and “Metal Masters” founder, Mark Menghi. “What better way to learn, than seeing these amazing performers up close and personal teaching their own personal techniques of the trade. ‘Metal Masters’ has always been about doing something special for the fans and that will never go away.”
