44 Double Takes: 2013 Musik Messe Slideshow

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.
