SANYO Showcases Rechargeable Products On Stage At NAMM 2011

SANYO Pedal Juice 4-Piece Band will be powered solely by eneloop Rechargeable Batteries

January 13, 2011
Anaheim, CA, January 13, 2011 – SANYO North America Corporation (SANYO) will participate in NAMM 2011 with a live band using SANYO Pedal Juice and other rechargeable battery products made exclusively for musicians. The SANYO Pedal Juice Band, featuring recording artist Jiro Yoshida, will be performing throughout the NAMM Show 2011, the world’s largest musical instrument trade show, from January 13 to 16, 2011 in Booth 7013.

As the #1 provider of rechargeable batteries in the world, SANYO has led the trend in the music industry toward recyclable, environmentally friendly, renewable energy products with the introduction of the Pedal Juice. The SANYO Pedal Juice delivers up to 50 hours of continuous power for a single analog pedal or up to 20 hours of continuous power to three digital pedals.  The SANYO Pedal Juice Band, featuring Jiro Yoshida, will be performing in the SANYO North America Booth #7013 each day during NAMM. All of the band’s electronic instruments, effects pedals/pedal boards and amplifiers will be powered by SANYO’s eneloop rechargeable battery technology which includes its revolutionary Pedal Juice rechargeable 9V power supplies.

“The SANYO stage at the NAMM Show is the perfect venue to illustrate the benefits of using rechargeable power that is stable and eliminates ground looping noise,” said Tom Van Voy, General Manager of the Digital Solutions Division for SANYO North America.  “Most importantly, SANYO rechargeable batteries equate to a tremendous reduction in disposable waste and greatly benefits the environment as well as the musician. Pedal Juice can save the musician money when compared to buying single use, disposable 9V alkaline batteries.”

Jiro Yoshida is a jazz guitarist who has been playing professionally for over 30 years. He will lead the SANYO Pedal Juice Band on the SANYO stage using only eneloop products to power the equipment from the first note to the last.
