Business Quote

I come here because I’m hoping to find that next guy, that next Gibson, that next Fender, that next JBL, Electro-Voice. Somebody who’s got a 10x10 booth but with a great idea. I always want to find that little niche guy that may one day be something, and I’ll be able to say, ‘I found him.’ Plus, I've got a lot of friends here. I get to see them twice a year sometimes and this is one of the places.

Summer NAMM is a lot bigger and better this year. I’m in the pro audio part of our business, so it’s great to see more pro audio exhibitors. I’m very pleased with what’s happening at the show.
