Guitar World Congratulates Super NAMM Award Winners

NewBay Media is pleased to announce the winners of the 2016 Super NAMM Awards.

Each product submitted for consideration was reviewed and rated in person during the 2016 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, California.

Products were judged on value, versatility, design, craftsmanship, feel, sound, cosmetics and that elusive something special, “mojo.” Items were scored on an average based on a 1-to-10 rating, which took into account only the criteria that were applicable for each product.

One judge shared, “It’s so enlightening to really dig into these new and innovative products and find out what makes them special. Each and every demo taught me something new! Kudos to our industry for continuing to present exciting and meaningful innovations and thoughtful craftsmanship.”

The Super NAMM Awards presented by the NewBay Music Group, top scorers for each publication were singled out and will be featured in an upcoming Super NAMM Awards guide. Join us in congratulating the winners:
