Just got back from Hall E, breeding ground for innovative and unusual technology from all those cool little-known and start-up companies. The most rocking piece of gear down there HAD to be the Wag ring from Xpresense. Check this out-it’s a wireless effects controller built into a ring-so as you play, your hand motions control effects parameters via data transmitted to the base unit. It’s obviously a big hit with guitarists, but keyboardists and even vocalists can really get into the technology. Head down tot he basement to check out the demo…

Just grabbed Mark Boyadjian from Neutrik off the aisles. Mark, you finding NAMM to be a good show for Neutrik?
Tom, thanks for letting me comment on this year’s NAMM Show and Anaheim. Arrived on Monday to weather that was colder than when I left New Jersey. I was expecting to wear a t-shirt and sandals and ended up in a jacket and jeans. I still love this part of California and its the perfect place to host the NAMM Show. You see it all at this show, from straight laced to alternative (really alternative) and everything in between.
Enjoyed a spectacular view of the sunset, Anaheim, Huntington Beach, and Newport from Orange Hill restaurant. Watched the sun go down and the city lights come up, just spectacular!
Neutrik is having a great time at the show. Hundreds of people visiting the booth and saying hello, asking to see Neutrik’s new Crimp XLR; that’s right, no solder needed, and no wire stripping. One squeeze of the crimp tool and the wire jacket is pierced and the wire is crimped in a gas tight connection. We are offering both a cable end version and a receptacle. We are giving demonstrations at our booth (#6320). Come on by and take a look, tell us about a new idea for other connector products or just say hello. For those of you unable to make the show, stay tuned and visit the Neutrik USA website for more details and features of the Crimp XLR and many other quality Neutrik products.
Enjoy the show!
