NAMM 2019 Highlight Reel
In case you missed our coverage of Winter NAMM 2019, here's a little highlight reel of the festivities! New gear, new friends, and great times! Check out our NAMM News and Guide to see what's rolling in and fresh off the truck from NAMM!
Our first day at NAMM, we simply had to check out the heavy hitters. Fender and the Custom Shop, as always, did not disappoint with some insane new options we're excited to bring back to CME. Did you see those Acoustisonics?!? Gretsch also offered up some classically cool 6-strings, and we got a peek at what Gibson has in store for the rest of 2019, with a rad performance by Chuck Berry's son and grandson to end the night!
We were overwhelmed by the amount of insane gear that showed up on day 2! From new releases from Chase Bliss, new Duseys, and Shelby getting the spotlight shown on him in the Taylor booth, NAMM 2019 is shaping up to be one for the books!
We had a great time on day 3 digging through yet more cool, innovative things from Ernie Ball, Ibanez, and more. Along with the new Supro line, amazing creations from Santa Cruz and plenty of awesome and fresh synths—modular and otherwise! And it was good to see old friends at Ludwig, repping some serious newly refreshed historic drums to celebrate their 110th anniversary! A great day indeed!
Making the final rounds, we got to see yet more excellent work from even more beloved vendors, including a tour de force from some of our acoustic friends. Fender's new models and drum company games were stronger than ever. We're looking forward to getting some of this great gear back for you in no time! See ya next time!
