Attending one of NAMM’s world-famous trade shows is one of the biggest highs of the year for a musician and gear head like me. I just love coming home with fresh ideas and a renewed sense of excitement about my music, and sometimes even new gear!
The music industry’s most important event, the NAMM Show ran January 19th through the 22nd, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. This was the Winter show, with the Summer NAMM show coming up July 12th – 14th, happening in Nashville this year.
Nowhere else in the U.S. can you can see, try and learn about so many musical products under one roof, and get a shot at brand new technologies firsthand.
NAMM U’s professional development sessions featured sound advice on current challenges and opportunities, with innovative ideas from leading industry experts.
A NAMM membership offers discounts and specials you won’t get anywhere else. Imagine getting hands-on with instruments and gear from over 1,400 manufacturers and vendors from around the world.
You should have seen all the great gear, business-building classes, colorful characters and live musical performances that made the 2012 NAMM Show so memorable. Here’s a few in this sampling of NAMM 2012 video…
