Surviving NAMM: The Weekend
Manufacturers had one big question as the 2010 NAMM Show began. Would buyers show up or was the recession still on? They got their answer as huge crowds overwhelmed the show on Friday and Saturday. We have hundreds of pics and hours of tape to go through which we'll start showing next week. There's lots of great new electronic drums from Alesis, Pearl and and others; great new snare drums; new pedals at Mapex; loads of new drum mics; dozens of accessories, and some surprising on-the-floor-interviews. Until then, here's a smattering from the floor of the show.
