Default NAMM 2011 Brundlefly Photo Blog




Part one is up with much more on the way. Focus this year was on more juicy drum shots and less "other stuff" due to work deadlines and failing body parts.

You can get to the main site here.

Or skip my wordy BS, and go directly to NAMM 2011 Part 1, featuring Mapex, Taye, Diril, Truth and Berndt.

Click here for NAMM 2011 — Part 2, featuring Tama, Paiste, Ford, Crush, Craviotto, Bosphorus and more.

Click here for NAMM 2011 — part 3, featuring Noble & Cooley, Stagg, Promark, Dynamicx, Masterwork, Greatsch, Sabian, Sleishman and Brady

Click here for NAMM 2011 — part 4, featuring Yamaha, Spaun, Hammerax, GMS, Pearl, UFIP and Rotek

Click here for NAMM 2011 — part 5, featuring Ludwig, Fidock, Anatolian, Meinl, Acoutin, Natal, Pork Pie, SJC, Peace, World Max, Zildjian and DW


Working hard on getting part 5 posted ASAP. Enjoy!

@ Cuban: no, just the one close up and the group shot. It's a sweet drum.

I saw the Crush drums in my local store this past week and was not impressed. Gary, Gwaco and I were giving them the once over. From what I understand they are made by some guys that left DDrum. The lugs all have plastic inserts. the lugs on the bass drum had no gaskets under them and sat below the bass drum hoop at such an angle that they would end up scratching the hell out of the hoops. The set we saw was the lower line, 5 or 6 piece that was about 699. Also the mount for the 13 inch tom would not hold the weight of the tom and was propped up by a piece of an old mic. Too many issues for me. Just one mans opinion. I'll let gary speak for himself.

Well, that, and when NAMM comes to town, we tend to be super busy (which is every week when there's a big convention in town). Plus, it's true; the door nazis are checkin' IDs along with the pass. A friend of mine tried to offer Disney passes and was unsuccessful. We've been busy doing this NAMM battle of the bands thing in Downtown Disney with an insane amount of gear, it's stupid! In our side of the block, every show is running, every band is playing, all three of our hotels are booked - it's like Christmas break all over again!

Awesome!! I need to go to this thing some day. Did you get to see the new Zildjian e-cymbals? I play V-drums as well as acoustic, and am dying to find out the deal with those, but mums the word from Zildjian thus far.

Very nice photos... I think the Gretsch set you commented on about not be too Gretsch-like, was more of a representation of Gibraltar goods since both are owned by the same conglomerate.

You know, I looked around and didn't see them. I expect them to be the focus of that booth, but the booth was nearly identical to last year with the only obvious addition of some kind of tablet application on the side. Someone else found them because I have seen photos, so I don't know what happened. Maybe it was because Thomas Pridgen showed up while I was there and distracted me (and everyone else).

Sure. And that really came across last year when they made it more apparent what they were highlighting. This year, the read was different. Not a big deal, they still had one of the more classy showings.

Cheers Stan, yes, I was hoping for some stuff from the Amedia stand, especially the Dervish (ancient Turk), Hitites (acid washed) series & Firebell. I'm contemplating a setup for my experimental Guru kit.

That's just not right.

You should have hooked up with somebody else.

You gotta get in there one way or another.

I'm driving down to have lunch with Ken Marino (deltadrummer). I'm picking him up at 1:30. I might take him to In-n-out since he's from New York and all....be out front!

Oh, I want to post it alright. But those shots need a little extra consideration given the subject matter this year. The NP is just mind blowing.

UFIP is coming up shortly. I don't recall seeing either Istanbuls or Amedia. Were they there? Seems like every year something gets lost regardless of how hard I try to get it all. It's probably a result of looking at everything too much threw the lens. Maybe next year, I'll bring a buddy to act as a spotter.

The Istanbul Agop booth was {is} directly across from the DW booth......no worries on it and thanks for your efforts documenting everything this year!

They were in a separate room behind the Z booth, and they only let people in who had appointments or with their Zildjian rep.

I did get pics, and I'll be posting a longer review of them once I'm a little less hung over.

Dang, I didn't see this earlier. I've already driven home, and am back into being dad to my kids.

Istanbuls and Amedia were their. I took a shot of Amedia's booth.

I wish we had hooked up. I met a bunch of people from this forum, but somehow not you. :-(

Ok, that explains it. I ran into Mike Johnston in the DW booth and ended up talking to him for a while. That really took me out of coverage mode. I really do need a spotter next year. :)
