Strymon at NAMM 2018!

We are back from our fourth NAMM Show, and we all really had a great time at this one. Those who have been to the NAMM Show know that it can be quite loud, but our particular location this year was in an area with a luxuriously mellow ambient decibel level, so we could really enjoy talking with everyone who came to visit us. This also allowed people using our demo stations to enjoy hearing themselves with maximal clarity through their headphones. All of our demo stations were powered by Zuma and Ojai, including Zuma R300 and Ojai R30, which both made their NAMM debuts this year. Also making its first NAMM appearance was our Sunset dual overdrive pedal. Oh, and another thing…

Magneto at NAMM!

This year at three of our demo stations, folks could get their hands on Magneto, our four-head dTape echo and looper for Eurorack modular. We were really happy with the reaction Magneto received at the show! MusicRadar said “Magneto was the talk of the Eurorack community at NAMM, and it’s not hard to see why,” naming it Winner for Best of NAMM 2018 in the Eurorack Gear category. Personally, I had so much fun demonstrating Magneto for people, because the sonic journey it can take you on from point A (input) to point B (output) is surprisingly fantastic, and most people are just not expecting what they are about to hear. For all the fun I had during each opportunity to play with Magneto at the show, when press with cameras showed up, I was more than happy to stand back and watch Pete Celi take the controls and demonstrate what Magneto can do. His DSP engineering and sound design are the heart and soul of Magneto. Check out one such instance of Pete demonstrating Magneto in the video below.

We also were happy once again to feature the fantastic photos you have shared with us on Instagram on our walls at NAMM. Thank you to Martin Krajčír and his Cat Fifi, Gene Lauricella, Jamie C.
