Best in Show

2019 Summer NAMM closed out with “Best in Show,” a NAMM U Breakfast Session that revealed the biggest products, innovations and services on the exhibit floor. Moderated by Frank Alkyer, publisher of Music Inc. and UpBeat Daily magazines, the session featured a team of music retail gear experts who searched the show floor in pursuit of the must-see and must-stock items. They presented 24-plus picks that are sure to make noise in the fourth quarter—and beyond.
