NAMM 2015

QDrumCo_NAMM15Wow… What a blast! NAMM is always a good time but this year was exceptional. So many great old and new friends in one place, and so much amazing gear. The Q Drum Co. booth stood out for sure. Q introduced the “Gentlemen’s series” snare drum, which is a spun, seamless 7″x14″ copper snare. Thicker shell than your average beaded, spun snare shell. Sounded absolutely phenomenal. Check it out here. The video doesn’t do it justice, though. When you hear it in person, it will blow your mind!
Paiste had some delicious new goodies as well. Check out the brand new PSTX line.
Apart from some serious gear-geekin’, there were some killer hangs with so many great people, the list would be too long. NAMM is such a cool opportunity to catch up with all of your industry buddies all in one place, once a year. Looking forward to next year!
