Anaheim, CA - January, 2011 - The 2011 Winter NAMM Show is now officially a memory. It was 4-fun-filled yet packed days of music education, new product annoucements, artist appearances, concerts, product demonstrations, G.A.S., and of course people - lots and lots of people. We were fortunate enough to be on-hand for all four days checking out the many new annoucements. There was so much to see, you can never take it all in but here is our consolidated effort to show you some of the cooler new releases for the coming year along with updates on many of the classic products already out on the market.
