At one point Casio keyboards were considered unhip. Then hip people started playing them because they were unhip, which made the players hip, and so the keyboards became hip. Now people just accept them for what they are: great-sounding keyboards that mere mortals can actually afford.

Alesis doin' electronic drums, and seemed always full. It's interested that all they emphasized was electronic drums, given the breadth of Alesis's overall product line.

Epiphone Masterbilt Century Zenith Classic - new mid-size f-hole archtop acoustic/electric, shown here for the first time. It's a beautiful guitar, and arguably the one that got the most attention at the Epiphone booth.

Gibson Acoustic High Performance line. These are all hand-built, with a new neck design, and slightly slimmer body designed to be more comfortable to play. FYI a lot of people asked whether these also have automatic tuning, like the High Performance electric guitars, but they have manual tuning.

Gibson Acoustic J-200 Vintage with Adirondack spruce top. You know how people often say Gibson guitars sound better as they get older? This uses a thermal aging process that accelerates the way wood ages, so a new guitar coming "out of the box" has the same tonal richness as a vintage J-200.

ABS plastic brass from Cool Wind, albeit with metal in some places like the valves. I think they may be something that came to life out of a Pixar movie.

Serenity now - instruments from Serenity Tibet. Given the general cacophony at NAMM, a little serenity is always welcome.

Leslie speakers - the only company in the world that doesn't get a letter from lawyers when they use the word "Leslie"
