Our NAMM 2016 Experience

We are back from our second year at the NAMM Show at the Anaheim Convention Center, and we had a fantastic time! This year, all our effects pedal demo stations were powered exclusively by our new power supply products, Zuma and Ojai. In addition to those demo stations where folks could get their hands (and ears) on the entire line of Strymon effects pedals, we also had three modular synth demo stations where people could try out prototypes of Generalissimo, our very first Eurorack effects module.

Our founders! Left to right: Pete Celi (sound design/DSP algorithms), Dave Fruehling (firmware architecture), and Gregg Stock (analog design).

It’s always great to reconnect with old friends after not seeing each other for a year, and it was also wonderful to see so many new, friendly faces and to enjoy getting to know so many cool people that we were meeting for the first time.

 

It’s always fun when someone brings their own instrument to the show to try out. We had violinists, harpists, a trumpeter, a Chapman Stick player, and more. See below.

 

 

Here is just the smallest taste of what was going on elsewhere at NAMM:

 

 

And when we aren’t at the NAMM convention there was always fun stuff going on around the convention center. Here are a few pictures from some of those adventures.
