Winter NAMM 2018

Posted by Jo Rivers at

We are back from our first experience of exhibiting at Winter NAMM and what a great experience it was.  We were located in Hall E which is the place to find many of the smaller exhibitors and the completely new innovations.  We were also alongside the Ukuleles which was fantastic as we didn't need our ear plugs! 

The show has a great atmosphere, upbeat and full of the vibes of an enormous reunion.  No matter which instrument you play and whatever your style of music everyone is genuinely interested and keen to chat and learn from each other.  Live performances throughout the four days keep the atmosphere buzzing with music at the booths, on the many stages inside and outside as well as in the surrounding hotels.  Its like one long party!

 Of course there is the more serious business to attend to and we went with the aim of taking our products to the US market and getting feedback from musicians as well as seeking out distributors in the USA. Our products were really well received and we got great feedback and made new friends.  We met with distributors from all over the world and are in talks with many of these to see how Fretfunk can best serve their marketplaces.

The inspiration we find at the show renews our energy and desire to continue with our own products development and the change of scene gave Andrew the inspiration to design some new products.  Hopefully they will be developed and ready for the next NAMM show.

NAMM 2018 - Fretfunk

I would like to say we enjoyed the beautiful warm temperatures and sitting in the Californian sunshine, however we had no time to squeeze this in, hopefully we can stay for longer next time and enjoy the sunshine too..........

What a fantastic show and a great opportunity to meet new people and gain a new audience.

If you didn't catch our Facebook Live videos, head over to our Facebook page and check them out, here is the first one..................


 A truly amazing experience and we were delighted with the feedback we were given and the ability to be part of such a great event.  Looking forward to next year already.  Watch this space for more product innovations...............
