Halfway into this year’s NAMM Show, we can say the machine is running at full speed. Thousands of exhibitors, tens of thousands of visitors, live music on a number of stages, well-known musicians at the booths of the companies they collaborate with (such as Steve Morse, John JR Robinson, Vinnie Paul, Ray Luzier) or simply stralling the exhibition halls (e. g. Bootsy Collins, Jason Bittner), and all manner of gear – PA, mixing boards, guitar amplification, keyboards, guitars, bass guitars, brass, software, all kinds of electronics. Add to this what’s the most important in the world, i. e. drums, percussion, cymbals plus all drum accessories imaginable, and you will get some kind of a picture of the event.
We have visited booths of DW, Gretsch, Sonor, Ludwig, Istanbul Agop and many more. Take a look at a few photos and our short video report. Enjoy!
