Musikmesse, the international trade show held each spring in Frankfurt, Germany, has a history of over 25 years. It is one of the two biggest musical instrument and production trade shows in the world. (The other biggest music trade show is the Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, California.)
This year’s show marked the 17th year for the Musikmesse International Press Awards (or “MIPA”). Journalists from over 100 dedicated special interest magazines from all over the world were called upon to nominate and vote for the best musical instruments and audio equipment of 2015/2016. And they voted to award the trophy for Best Guitar Effect to Deco!
More than 300 international representatives of musical instrument and audio equipment manufacturers and distributors attended the award show on April 7th, 2016, including guests from the USA, Canada, Japan, Brazil, Russia, Poland, Great Britain, Italy, France, Greece, The Netherlands, Belgium, China, Indonesia, Denmark, Austria, Switzerland and Germany.
We are honored to have been recognized for our work on Deco. Thank you, MIPA! And also, thanks very much to Chris Gooddie from Musicpsych for accepting the award on our behalf.
