It's over, folks! The 2015 Winter NAMM Show took place Thursday morning, January 22, through Sunday, August 25, in Anaheim, California. As always, Guitar World NAMM-ed it up, shooting photos and videos, gathering endless gear news and trying out (and gawking at) the coolest guitars, amps, effects, devices and more that are being introduced for 2015.
C. F. Martin & Co. will unveil their newly revamped Martin Strings line at the 2015 Winter NAMM Trade Show this week in Anaheim. The improvements to Martin’s string products will boast new stay-fresh packaging and eye-catching design for all eight major acoustic string product lines.
The Seymour Duncan Vise Grip Compressor is a studio-grade soft-knee compressor designed for guitarists who want to take control of the dynamics of their sound, from a subtle smoothing-out of peaks and valleys to the most squished and pinched extremes and everywhere in between.
These videos and audio files are bonus content related to the February 2015 issue of Guitar World. For the full range of interviews, features, tabs and more, pick up the new issue on newsstands now or at the Guitar World Online Store.
