The NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Show is the biggest annual showcase of musical technology and innovation.  This year’s show runs from January 22nd to January 25th.  Best Buy and Casio have sent two writers to Anaheim to bring you articles, photos and videos of the excitement. This post will be updated throughout the show with links to all of our coverage.

Plug-in musical instrument writer, and recording engineer Dave Chick, will once again be in Anaheim walking the conference floor, talking to exhibitors and taking pictures and videos along the way. Marc-André Seguin, music blogger and a recent finalist for the TrueFire’s Top online guitar instructor, will also once again be writing and recording videos for our French audience.  Return often to read Dave and Marc-André’s articles, and to see the many images of the new technology that has been developed for musicians.
