We are so excited to help announce that the guitar/vocalist, Fid Saihen, for one of Asia’s premier ska-punk band, Singapore’s The Full Pledge Munkees, has landed an endorsement deal with a Russian electronics company called AMT Electronics. If anyone has seen this band live they will assure you that if there was any band in Asia that is worthy of supporting and endorsing, it is certainly this all killer no filler rock act from Singapore who bring the goods not only in the quality of their songs and musicianship, but also in their high energy performances as well.
We were so excited about it that we quickly hit up Fid for a few words about the deal:
“AMT Electronics was started by Sergei Marichev in 1987. They specialise in effects pedals for guitars, basses, and amplifiers. They are considered leaders in solid state tube technology by managing to produce amp tubes that have the same analog vacuum characteristics but with consistent performance and basically maintenance free meaning they are manufactured at the highest quality. It’s the reason why I truly fell in love with their gear in the first place. The gear has also been proven road warriors withstanding the torture, abuse and neglect that comes with gear that accompanies bands on the road! Many bands/solo artists around the globe from many different genres are currently endorsed by them. Only 5 out of the long roster hail from Asia, and I am honored to be one of those 5!
Here is the full list of Asian musicians they endorse”
Yan Shen (China)
Jack Lee (China)
Fid Saihen (Singapore)
I was offered the endorsements by AMT Electronics’ artist relations officer after they reviewed The Full Pledge Munkees repertoire and achievements. I’m so damn stoked bout this!! Will definitely be using their stuff extensively for our upcoming 2nd full studio album and tour!!”
Once again from us at UniteAsia.org – congrats Fid!
