NAMM Show 2016–That’s a Wrap!

Every year at just about this time, the magnetic force of music draws folks from around the world into a single location in southern California.  The result? 100,000+ excited fans pack the Anaheim Convention Center!  For four glorious days each January, The NAMM Show comes to town and visitors and guests from around the world check out new products and spend time up close and personal with the best in the business. Its true that the almost certainty of sunny skies doesn’t hurt much, but it really is all about the music!  Perhaps the largest, most intense, and fun event of its kind anywhere on earth–nothing compares to NAMM!  2016 was no exception and previous attendance records were shattered! According to NAMM, the 2016 registration and attendance topped 101,000+ showcasing 6,000 brands!   Sincere gratitude and thanks to those that stopped by to visit and check out our full product line.  Seeing folks getting up close and being able to compare our different vibrato models in person is what makes this show so incredible from our perspective.  While our booth is the epicenter of Bigsby tailpieces at the show, it certainly wasn’t the only place they could be found.  All around the show, our vibratos were featured not only on the most well-known and established brands including Fender (loving the new B50’d Jazzmasters!), Gibson, Gretsch, and D’Angelico, but new companies and boutique builders including Veritas, James Trussart, Collings, and Saul Koll.  And we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the Dobrato–be sure to check it out HERE! Check out the photos below for a small taste of this great event; and you can check out NAMM’s gallery HERE! We always love the opportunity to see what luthiers are doing with our tailpieces, but this event was over the top!
