I got to do something this year that I have been meaning to do for a long time. In January I spent a few hours at the Two Old Hippies booth at NAMM. There was so much fun stuff to look at there I never got to cross the line from Bedell to Breedlove. I guess we’ll have to go back.

My relationship with Peavey takes us back in time to the 70s. Like most local gigging musicians of the day, the first real PA I owned was a used Peavey:  a small 100 watt, old Model 120 or something with two of those classic Peavey tower speakers.  I think I traded a guitar for it.  I had to have a PA.  It worked great and later in life, without the columns, it made a great bass amp.

There is a room at every NAMM show that isn’t part of the main exhibit hall area. It is outside, all by itself near the John Lennon Stage, by the bus. It is a magical place. It is the Roland Room.

Roland is one of those companies that has created technology for all of our favorite tools. Keyboards, guitars, drums, live sound, recording equipment, microphones, monitors – the list is endless and they have been consistently on the front edge. Innovators of some of our favorite sounds, they seem to have perfected the business model for the digital age. Providing cutting-edge technology in user-friendly instruments with price points for consumers and pros alike. When you see the Roland logo you know great minds have been at work.
