-Drum Companies Win NAMM’s 2012 Best In Show Awards

Each year the National Association Of Music Merchandisers invites a panel of six music products experts to tour the Winter NAMM Show in order to pick the companies that will receive the annual Best In Show Award. This year a number of drum-related product manufacturers were honored for this distinction, including Ludwig’s new Atlas hardware line and Mapex’s Mydentity custom drum program. Alfred Publications and Todd Sucherman won the Best Accessory Or Add-On category for the drummer’s DVD Methods and Mechanics II, while Gibraltar Hardware’s new Quick Release Hi-Hat Clutch took the category of Must Stock It, and Behringer was tapped as a Company To Watch.
