BeatIt visits Big Bang Distribution Booth

NAMM Show is the biggest and most important event of this type in the world. Plain and simple. What we have here is thousands of manufacturers of all musical instruments imaginable (including drums, percission and accessories), PA systems, microphones, software or companies rendering services for the music industry. Add to this 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 (Zildjian, Sabian, Paiste, 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 DISTRIBUTION) 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, Vinnie Colaiuta, Mike Johnston, Danny Carey, Nicko McBrain, John JR Robinson, Russ Miller, Daru Jones, Gregg Bissonette, Mikkey Dee, Rick Latham, Vinny Appice or Gergo Borlai. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg…
