NAMM 2013 in Photos


It’s that time of year again, when the makers of dreams—or at least the equipment that helps them come true—show off the latest and greatest gear that will be available in the upcoming months. What’s the catch? Not everyone is invited! Never fear, the Modern Drummer editors have it covered. Check out these pics from the guys at NAMM 2013 in Anaheim, California, to get a peek at the gear and people that make the event a must.

These pictures were taken directly from our Instagram feed with cameras on various cellphones. Complete coverage with actual cameras will be available in the weeks ahead. And if that’s not enough, follow us on Twitter and Instagram.

For more information on NAMM (the National Association of Music Merchants), go to its website here.
