The Musik Messe show this past April provided a meeting place for global product manufacturers to reach the European music products market, and a chance for smaller North American manufacturers to try to grow their business overseas. Ronn Dunnett of Dunnett Drums in British Columbia sent us his pics of the show. There are some great shots of products here, including many we didn't get to see at the NAMMfeatures Show in January.
The interior courtyard at the Messe in Frankfurt where huge international trade shows are held, including Musik Messe, every April. The Messe has ten exhibit halls.
This booth from Drum Center of Koln Germany featured Craviotto, Dunnett, Acoutin, Crescent, and other North American drum equipment companies.

What every home needs. A wall of Ludwig snares.
Europe is Paiste's home turf and they had a beautiful booth. Ron took this shot looking up into a sky of floating Paiste pies.
Paiste is the world's leading gong producer. Impressive.
