  • My NAMM 2019 report is now available

    I have now published my report from Winter NAMM 2019.
    It's a long but, I hope, entertaining read.

    Hope you'll enjoy it!

    Cheers,

    yes that was an enjoyable read
    and also had some stuff I missed out on in other NAMM reporting
    Taey Kang guitars and Timespeed are new to me
    good to see the Danelectro pedals in the flesh, I only saw a press release, kind of interested in the Breakdown
    well, if it ever gets here
    thanks for posting the report, good job

      Thanks Bieke! That's was a great compliment coming from a NAMM Jedi Master like you.

    Wow! It's almost like we went to two different shows. Great to see what I steered away from due to the volume, and not surprised that you found the noise level uncomfortable. Glad you got the guitars and pedals covered thoroughly. There are so many!

    I want to play with that Blue Cat "pickup designer." When I reviewed the IK Multimedia Modo Bass, the thing I found most interesting was swapping pickups and pickup position on a given chassis. I didn't get to Fender at all, so I missed the Acoustasonic guitars. Does what comes out of the amplifier really sound like a flat top when you've selected one of the acoustic guitars? That, I gotta hear. I'll probably have to wait until next year's NAMM, though. If I see you there, remind me.

      I got a similar thought when I read your report. The show is so big nowadays that you have to focus to cover your main area of interest.

      Hi Dendy,
      Either you forgot my name or you wrote in the wrong thread. :-)

      Cheers,

      So Bieke..according to Mats..the Dano pedals will be available in the Retro finish..?
      If so, I am going to pull the trigger..
      I recently joined Facebook after totally fighting it for years...
      got gig offers from old band mates..
      going to start slowly wading the waters again.
      seems daunting.
      Seem like I have developed a bit of agoraphobia without noticing.

          they sure look nice though

                Can do, but it could take a while
                Local shop carries Dano pedals, and they only just received their first shipment of the Millionaire series (pedals are already out for nearly 2 years)
                THe new pedals start shipping on April 1 and are 149$ street
                Anyway, these are nice enough pedals, but I keep reading complaints about poor quality switches
                The new pedals seem to have sturdier switches
                PG has a review with demo

                    I wonder who the "guitar god" was that supposedly used the Breakdown circuit on their first album in 1968 is?

                        I think it's Craig but he prolly has no recollection of it
