The physical show isn’t happening – but the gear launches most definitely are
This time of year, we’d usually all be going to California and hitting up Anaheim’s gargantuan Convention Center to get the scoop on all the latest and greatest gear the guitar world has to offer – but as the pandemic rages on, NAMM 2021 will not be taking place in a physical form.
But that doesn’t mean companies are holding back on their launches for January – far from it. We’re barely two weeks into 2021, and we’ve already seen hundreds of new guitars, amps and pedals from the likes of Fender, PRS and Ibanez… And we’re only just getting started.
January 18 through 22 sees the launch of Believe in Music Week, NAMM’s digital replacement, which promises educational seminars, live music, and opportunities to connect – we’ll be expecting a host of new releases around this event, too.
We’d also be remiss not to mention our sister site MusicRadar’s Gear Expo, which is held on January 29 and 30 and set to showcase the biggest releases set to land this year.
