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.

I could have spent all day playing around in the drum rooms at NAMM. There was so much to see. I had heard about some new toys from Vater. They’re called StickMates and just wait ’til you see these. I hooked up with Mark from Vater and he showed us the cool new stuff. Known more for their durability and comfort Vater sticks always deliver for me personally and though I use others I like the little extra length and durability of a Vater stick.

Each year, at NAMM, we look forward to viewing the latest innovations, those presenting their new products to the music industry for the first time. This year we again found the wacky, the wonderful, and some stuff that is just plain wrong. We also found one of the coolest drum sets you will ever see. It started in the press room.

Nick Smith Demos the MuseBox Live from the Peavey Booth at The NAMM Show

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.
