It’s that time of year again as we trek to sunny Anaheim, California for the annual NAMM show! The National Association of Music Merchants or “NAMM” is a music industry trade show inaugurated in 1901. The show exists to support the music industry and show the world the latest innovations in musical products, recording technology, sound, and lighting. This week, tens of thousands will gather at the Anaheim convention center for a few days of business and music-filled fun. Check out this blog to see the new gear we will have with us at NAMM 2018!

The Music Experience gives us an opportunity to meet music fans and share our love of great guitars and amps. Read more about it here!
