One of the biggest trends at this years NAMM Show…’ukuleles! Seems that every major guitar manufacturer now has an ‘ukulele offering along with dozens of smaller brand new companies sprouting up everywhere! Good to see that the instrument is growing! This beautiful specimen, the “MultiUke”, is the latest from my guitar sponsor Godin. Plays as great as it looks!

Cool NAMM recap vid by one of my sponsors MONO…don’t blink or you will miss my cameo at 2mins 16secs!

Interesting little mic sanitizer packs that were given out for free at the recent NAMM Show in Anaheim. I’d feel weird using these at a gig, which is why I always use my own mic.

'Ukulele Underground NAMM Coverage!

Initially I had planned to update my blog with extensive daily NAMM coverage featuring vids, photos and more. However rather than try to reinvent the wheel, please head on over to my friends at ‘Ukulele Underground. They were able to cover so much real estate at the enormous music merchant trade show and do an excellent job with interviews! It’s probably the most thorough coverage I’ve seen yet! Kudos guys!
