Nicko McBrain at Paiste press conference during NAMM Show 2017

NAMM Show is the biggest and most important event of this type in the world. Straight between the eyes, like shot from an AK-47. Thousands of manufacturers of all musical instruments imaginable (including drums, percussion and accessories), PA systems, microphones, software or companies rendering services for the music industry combined with tens of thousands of visitors at Anahaeim Convention Center, all of whom work in different branches of the music business. All of this happens every year in January and this year was no different. You just need to see it for yourselves, if you havent so far…

Having limited ourselves and our reports solely to drum-related (which is only natural) we can still say that all the greats of the drumming business (PAISTE, Zildjian, Sabian, Meinl, DW, Gretsch, Tama, Yamaha, Pearl, etc.), all those whose merits are unquestionable and who count in this business (Istanbul Agop, Istanbul Mehmet, Mapex, Dixon) and those who wish to achieve such a status (the Canadian sticks and accesories manufacturers Headhunters, our countrymen from the Polyend company or accessories dealers Big Bang Distribubtion) attended NAMM 2017 as exhibitors. Also, we must not forget the artists who were present in Anaheim this year. Those included the likes of Steve Gadd, Steve Smith, Marvin “Smitty” Smith, Benny Greb, Mike Johnston, Russ Miller, Gregg Bissonette, Rick Latham or Vinny Appice. Add to this, an impressive list of PAISTE endorsers: Vinnie Colaiuta, Danny Carey, Nicko McBrain, Daru Jones, John JR Robinson, Mikkey Dee, Gergo Borlai. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg…

A few weeks before this year’s NAMM Show, we received an invitation to a closed PAISTE press conference. You have already seen cymbal presentations by Daru Jones and John JR Robinson. Now, it is time for the legendary Iron Maiden drummer and his signature treasures. The clip, which you are about to see, the man himself talks about all the cymbals the Nicko McBrain’s Treasures set is comprised of.
