The NAMM Show 2015

NAMM Show 2015

stevie wonder namm 2015

The NAMM Show is a huge extravaganza that happens every year at the Anaheim Convention Center. Music related companies of all kinds set up elaborate booths in the hopes of catching the attention of musicians and industry related folks. New products are unveiled with an emphasis on cutting edge technology and next-level design. World famous musicians roam the halls between scheduled appearances and performances - if you're lucky, you might even spot Stevie Wonder! 

We had several of our ArtistWorks instructors making the rounds at NAMM, here's some hightlights:

Paul Gilbert was there to thank all his generous gear companies who keep him rocking with style: Marshall, Ibanez, DiMarzio, Ernie Ball, Dunlop, TC Electronic, Majik Box, and Empress Effects. You can read more about Paul Gilbert at NAMM here

Nathan East had a great turnout for his appearance at the TC Electronic booth, here he is performing Stevie Wonder's "Sir Duke" using the Ditto Looper.

Later he was inducted into the NAMM TEC Awards Hall of Fame, a great honor.

DJ Qbert performed as Invisibl Skratch Piklz with D-Styles and Shortkut at the Pioneer DJ booth, it's always a treat to see these guys skratching together.  


Speaking of skratching, the new TRX mixer that Qbert designed with DJ Tech Pro was on display looking nice and shiny. 

All in all, it was another great NAMM Show filled with amazing musicians and exciting new innovative products. If you ever have a chance to attend NAMM, do it - there's nothing like it. 

Until next time, remember - believe in music!
