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.

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.
