Stern’s Led Zeppelin Pinball Game

Led Zeppelin PinballNeed we say more? This game is the newest offering from Stern Pinball. And already has won CES Awards, critic acclaim and a named a GAD classic out of the box.

The Led Zeppelin game comes in three play versions, which is common for Stern pinball releases. Pro model, which is the most basic option, is usually found in public areas like bars, bowling alleys and game rooms. The other two models are Premium and Limited Edition. These models offer added features that give the play immersive experiences. For a full comparison and stock availability, our GAD reps are happy to help.

Of course, the biggest highlight with the Led Zeppelin pinball table is the fact that the band agreed to license their IP at all. Led Zeppelin likes to keep their song catalog to themselves. But Stern’s goal of recreating a Led Zeppelin concert experience was too special to pass up. This table is complete with lights, music and even concert footage. Everything a Led Zeppelin fan could want in a pinball game.


While we could Ramble On about the innovative ruleset in the game, the Song Remains the Same for Stern’s manufacturing capabilities and attention to detail and quality in hand assembling all of Stern’s pinball machines, included in this first look video of Led Zeppelin LE’s on the line!

COVID has changed the Pinball industry

COVID has changed the Pinball industry 2083 2083 GAD Vending

GAD adapts and expands across the Midwest

(Omaha, NE  November 17, 2020) With the continuing isolation and work from home imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic more and more people are repurposing space into home game rooms and arcades. This has caused a shortage of arcade games across the country. Greater America Distributing (GAD) is uniquely positioned to answer the demand.

Mike Dobel and Larry Bailey, owners of Greater America Distributing (GAD), are expanding personnel to meet the new demands.  With a number of recent retirements, Andy Dobel is welcomed as a new partner.  Armed with an outside perspective, Andy sees expanding opportunities in the markets they serve as the pandemic continues to heavily impact people’s lives, especially in the sales and service of arcade and pinball games for the home.

After a 16-year career in the railroad industry, Andy brings a new outlook to the distributor side of vending and games.  “Our role in our customer’s success has never been more important.  We strive to ensure we provide all the resources and expertise necessary to keep our line of products performing their best,” says Andy Dobel.  A strong background in logistics and customer service gives the younger Dobel a uniquely positioned skill set to slide into his new role quickly.

Homebound families are constantly looking for a fun break. This includes quick competition between people either in the same household or anywhere in the world.  “One of my goals is to provide unique remote gameplay to engage everyone in the family,” says Mike Dobel. “Many of our games come configured to connect via the internet to allow remote head-to-head or team competitions. With competition play in mind, we stock games for all ages.”

With the increase in demand, the industry is experiencing a strain on supply. “Thanks to our long standing relationship with the pinball manufacturers we are able to keep a large number of game titles in stock in the face of increased demand,” according to Bailey.  “GAD is also able to outfit any home with a complete game room from online darts and Golden Tee to pinball and even the nostalgic Multicade consoles featuring Pacman, Galaga, Space Invaders and dozens more.”

With offices and warehouses in Omaha, Des Moines and Kansas City, GAD is able to stock new and used equipment and parts. Our sales and service departments are working at full staff to keep our essential commercial operating at peak efficiencies while taking on the new residential demands. Curbside pickup is available for all our equipment and parts.
