The 40-string recliner is supposed to give you a sound massage—someone else plays the strings while you sit there.
I'm glad I was wearing the mask because the look on this guy's face would have been off-putting otherwise.
Someday this tendency of mine is going to get me into real trouble.
As soon as I saw these, I knew that they had to be Bluetooth-connected shoes with subwoofers.
To be honest, the effect was pretty cool once you dialed it in. I never expected that I'd ever be adjusting the bass levels on my shoes.
Are Yeti hands more like rabbits' feet or monkey paws?
Gibson must have a high manufacturing rate failure to have enough guitars build these art pieces. Don't they know that there are kids in Africa who are guitarless?
I think I like the previous iteration of their iron throne better.
And even more nope.
I think that Fender nailed the George Harrison guitar reissue and the trippy '60s vibe with this display.
I was a bit dismissive of their t-shirt declaration because, well, with the climate these days, most musicians have a hard time being anything but independent. But after perusing their catalog, I have to give credence to their claim.
I can't help but think that the proliferation of wannabe rocks stars past their expiration date roaming NAMM were the target market for these products.
Had I been the one designing this display, I would have pointed out that it essentially says "Puke Bags." I can't help but think they might have been in for a surprise when they eventually broke down this display, especially with the high incidence of NAMMthrax.
This was just done for kicks and isn't a product but it certainly deserves to be here.
She got tickets to the show but at what price?
Since this headset mic isn't a hydrophone, it's unlikely to work while completely submerged but you get the point.
To prove just how weather resistant the Maverick Storm is, they put it in its own little shower stall for the duration of NAMM.
The point of this display was to illustrate that speaker design hasn't substantially changed in decades.
Whenever someone drops money in this tip jar, it kicks out a slip of paper. You could fill it with download cards or mini flyers for upcoming shows.
…just don't drop your mic while you're here.
This game is solidy targeted at board gamers who are into music theory.
Tired of boring old white keys? If so, stick these guys on your keyboard to add bling to the underblinged.
I'm not quite certain if the additional metal piece is meant to protect the mic in a fall, prevent the singer from cupping the mic, or serve as impromptu brass knuckles in the event of unruly fans.
This confetti cannon is a great tool to have if your goal is to really piss off the post-show cleaning crew.
Nothing makes a 3D printed item look more like a real a product than sticking it into blisterpack.
I guess that makes it harder to forget their name.
I asked someone at the SKB booth why they had a Volkswagen bus in their booth. They said it had to do with the fact that those are Transporters and SKB makes case that transport equipment. Pretty weak connection if you ask me.
Perfect gift for the string player who is a member of both the Berlin (UTC+1) and Rio de Janeiro (UTC-3) symphonies.
If you can make a guitar from their trusses, you should be able to do anything.
I'm sure this is a clever product name but since I don't do TV/Film production audio, nor am I a New Englander, it was largely lost on me.
These spherical speakers can be mounted just about anywhere.
Every year loudspeakers are infected with more and more lights. Eventually there will be speakers that are nothing but light, leaving out sound entirely.
I feel like I should be hearing announcements come out of these speakers with their accompanying speech bubbles.
I don't know quite why you'd need a speaker that size to be that far up in the air but if you do, these guys have you covered.
I've no clue why the mascot for these in-ear monitor maintenance tools is a rabbit holding an ear of corn.
