Frank Catfish Butler at 2010 NAMM

So here at, we are gearing up for the 2011 NAMM Show in Anaheim, California. It is in January on the west coast and in the summer in Nashville.

It is a convention for music manufacturers. Companies that make guitars, amps, pianos, drums, strings, cords, microphones, stage lighting-you name it, will be there showing off their latest models to companies that sell these products.

Demeter Amplification from Tube Direct to Cult Collector Classic

We ran into James Demeter at the NAMM Show. Interesting guy. He was the guitarist for “The Heaters” back in the 70’s. (That’s him in the center, in the photo at left.) Although he knows his way around a guitar and even built them for a while, he is known more for his amps than anything else. His booth was kind of a green room for his friends, if you will. I heard he didn’t give many interviews as his special line of amps, pre-amps, compressors and other effects gadgets don’t need any salesman standing in the flow of foot traffic handing out flyers to the masses. The biggest artists in my (and your) world use his gear, and they line up to do so. His cutting-edge technology sells itself to those who want and need perfection in delivering sound waves to fans everywhere. At this show, a very limited-edition recreation of the pre-amp whose unique sound was made famous by Dean Deleo of Stone Temple Pilots made its appearance for the lucky 15 who will get to own one.
