NAMM 2019 Greatest Hits Recap
Day 1: Heavy Hitters and Previews!
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!
Day 2: Gear Galore!
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!
Day 3: Ibanez and Supro New Lines! Ludwig Drums and Some Synth!
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!
Day 4: Making the Final Rounds!
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 new models and drum 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!
