We had yet another very successful Winter NAMM this year! While I have traded in the mid 60’s weather of Southern California for the sub-zero, polar vortex weather of Indiana – it is still good to be back home. This year at Winter NAMM we met up with some great friends and some killer players, demoed two new Wampler Pedal prototypes, and announced the new name of the Ace Thirty pedal; the “30 Something”.
While there were countless talented musicians that stopped by the booth, too many to list, it was good to see some familiar faces and a couple new ones! The short list of players I want to say thank you to for stopping by is (in no particular order): The always wonderful Tom Quayle, Pete Thorn, Hexx Henderson, Bruce Bouillet, Synyster Gates (Avenged Sevenfold), Gary Morse, Daniele Gottardo; who was accompanied by the very talented Gretchen Menn.
NAMM is also a time where pedal builders can catch up with one another and even indulge in some good old fashion shenanigans with one another. Wampler Pedals is very fortunate to have some great pedal building friends that make some fantastic products. Big shout out to Nicholas from Caitlin Bread Effects, Philippe from Caroline Guitar Co, Josh from JHS, Sean from Lotus, all the guys from Walrus Audio, and Jamie from Earth Quaker Devices!
