Russ Miller presents NFUZD Audio and Mapex Drums at NAMM Show 2017

NAMM Show is the biggest and most important event of this type in the world. Simple as that. Blunt but true, you might say. 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 are the employees of 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, Gregg Bissonette, Rick Latham or Vinny Appice, Vinnie Colaiuta, Danny Carey, Nicko McBrain, Daru Jones, John JR Robinson, Mikkey Dee, Gergo Borlai as well as the great MAPEX endorser – Russ Miller. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg…

Mapex Drums/NFUZD Audio Booth

One of the attractions prepared by MAPEX were presentations of the newest additions to the NFUZD Audio drum software. Three times a day, Russ Miller – an outstanding session drummer with hundreds of recordings for the biggest pop stars and Hollywood productions under his belt, whose highly interesting article on endorsements we translated into Polish and published in July last year – conducted thowe presentations. He also showed the new Mapex Saturn V Tour Edition kit. It was also possible to enjoy some excellent live playing by this magnificent drummer.
