At the recent NAMM Show, MMR dropped by the Ernie Ball booth to chat with the family behind one of the marquee names in MI.
The 2010 Summer NAMM Show featured countless innovative musical products covering the entire spectrum of music making. MMR’s sister publication, School Band & Orchestra, enlisted educators attending the Nashville trade show to seek out the best tools for use in music classrooms, with the winning products being named at a special presentation on June 20th. The panel of educators helped select and introduce the following products in12 widely varying categories, declaring them SBO’s 2010 Summer NAMM Show Best Tools for Schools.
In our September 2009 wrap-up of last summer’s NAMM convention in Nashville, we bemoaned the absence of some of the “big name” exhibitors who’d had a presence in previous years and reported on declining numbers, while simultaneously noting a generally positive tone on the show floor.
A few of the best…and worst…moments of the 2010 Summer NAMM show.
An MI retailer receiving a Hal Leonard catalog is not necessarily a big deal. Receiving two? Well, mistakes happen… wait. The second is just for gifts and accessories. As for their main catalog, the software section is getting bigger, too. So in addition to that ukulele folio, dealers can order little composer statues; band method for viola; pro audio recording software; and with that conga book and DVD, why not electronic tuners?
