The Best and Worst of Summer NAMM

Ah, yes… the giant, beautiful candy store for musicians also known as NAMM. While not many outside the music industry get the chance to physically attend this biannual gathering of music merchants and pros, there is never any shortage of content for anyone to feel like they’re right there in the great event center.

  • The issue I’ve found with nearly every piece of reporting to come out of these NAMM shows, however, is the oversaturation of the same types of content. Sure, we want to find out what’s new, but we also want to know what it’s like to be there, right?
  • That’s where I come in. In the video below, I’ll show you some of the best parts of NAMM that you won’t find details about on any other media outlet–for better or for worse.
