New product News - Summer NAMM 2018

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, I am not going to Nashville this year, but I update the HC News every weekday, so I get to see all the new product announcement press releases.

 

If you haven't checked the HC News today, you might want to. :idea: And you might want to check it every day during the run-up to NAMM and for the duration of the show (which runs from June 28th-30th) - there's bound to be a bunch of new products announced, and as the news comes in, we'll be sure to post it.

 

 

In the coming days I'll be posting some things that I come across that I think might be of interest in this thread. If you see anything that catches your attention - whether in the HC News, elsewhere online, or at NAMM itself - please feel to post about it too.
