One of the big music industry events that kicks off each year (and lucky for us here in Southern California, takes place right in our backyard of Anaheim) is the National Association of Music Merchandisers, or NAMM for short. It’s a chance for all the major music instrumental companies to roll out their newest equipment, and some of said company’s biggest endorsees to show up (many unexpected) and take the stage for some awesome impromptu jamming.
What follows are some of the highlights at the recent NAMM Convention, in pictures.
