Every January, around the 3rd week while all of us in the cold states are really starting to feel winter, the music business settles down in Anaheim California for its annual trade show. It is call NAMM or National Association of Music Merchants.
This world famous trade show is were all the manufacturers show off their new musical gear for 2012 to retailers, performing musicians and other professionals in the music biz. The latest in pro audio, guitars, drums, amplifiers, keyboards, microphones, woodwind and brass. And the list goes on.
Every year we try to update our site with the newest product releases shown at NAMM 2012 with as much detailed information as possible. You can find these new exciting products @ birdlandmusic.net with this link: NAMM 2012. Please check back every day as we are constantly adding new product.
In the past few years with the advancements in computer technology, Namm has helped pioneering companies such as Alesis, M Audio, Presonus, Digidesign, Apogee, and cakewalk introduce audio interfaces, which have now become the industry standard in home studio recording. These interfaces allow you to record right to your PC!
In addition, we have seen an explosion of in ear monitor systems which has completely revolutionized the way performers hear themselves on stage.
Also many DJs, sound men and touring bands can certainly appreciate old standard companies such as Crown, Behringer, Peavey and QSC pioneering light power amps. Now a 4000 watt power amp can weigh as little as 7 lbs, compared to 30 lbs just a few years ago!
And who would think it is possible to do much more with an acoustic or even electric guitar, but every year Ibanez, Fender, Blue Ridge, to name a few come out with new designs, or re issues of old favorite or forgotten classics.
Drummers for the past 10 years have also been shown the possibilities of drums gone digital. Roland, Alesis, and Yamaha have been raising the bar every year with newer versions of the electronic drum set. Now with USB interfaces built right into the sound module, communication with a PC for recording, sampling or laying backing tracks could never be easier. At the same time Ludwig and DW hold onto the beauty, legacy and tone of highly crafted wood drums.
The Piano has been such a dominant force in music worldwide for centuries. Who can not recognize the works of early classical composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, or contemporary works on the B3 organ, or film scores done with modern Piano synthesizers. At Namm Pianos along with digital pianos and synthesizers are all shown in there latest releases by new and old manufacturers. It is amazing to see the technology as old as a piano with new modern carbon fiber parts in the actions or working with a digital player system. You can even see the piano as an app in you i-pad.
