NAMM 2016

Thoughts on NAMM 2016 –’s Debut! made its debut at NAMM 2016! Marty Peters and I made the trek to Anaheim to introduce ourselves and dive head-first into the latest and (sometimes) greatest developments in musical instruments and pro audio.

Marty's a long-time veteran of the NAMM shows (he's exhibited there many times, but I'll let him tell that story), but this was my first time attending. It was great meeting up with several old friends and colleagues, and even better to meet many new people.

We decided to stay away from the breaking news, live streaming style of coverage of the show. We feel that you can get that sort of coverage from plenty of other sites. Instead, we spent our time talking to a lot of people, learning a lot about many small companies offering products that would be hard to find anywhere else.

Marty will be providing extensive coverage of some of these companies, with an emphasis on the Exhibit Hall E exhibitors…the up and comers. He'll be giving us valuable insight into what these creative minds have crafted.
