Electric guitar amp manufacturer Orange is bringing along a host of its endorsers to next month's NAMM conference.

The industry show, which is to be held in Anaheim, California between January 13th and 16th 2011, will see a number of professional musicians appearing at the Orange stall to participate in signing sessions, reports MI-Pro.

Omar Rodriguez-Lopez from the Mars Volta will be there, along with three members of Mastodon and former Pantera guitarist Rex Brown.

Meanwhile, Orange amp demonstrator Doug Doppler will be on hand on each day of the conference to hold a series of clinics that show off the potential of the latest products that have been manufactured by the company.

Those who visit the Orange stall over the course of the NAMM event will also get to see a performance by the man dubbed the "world's fastest guitarist", Tiago della Vega.

The musician holds a record for playing Flight of the Bumblebee at 320 beats per minute without making any errors.

A host of famous British and American bands use Orange guitar amps, including Arctic Monkeys, Kaiser Chiefs, Jimmy Eat World and Alkaline Trio.

Others to use the company's equipment include Jimmy Page and My Chemical Romance.
