32nd Annual TEC Award Winners

The 32nd Annual NAMM TEC Awards celebrated pro audio and sound production across 23 Technical and 8 Creative categories, and was marked with moving acceptance speeches from industry innovators and Hall of Fame Award recipient Jack Douglas.

Joe Perry not only touched the audience with his heartfelt gratitude for receiving the Les Paul Award, but also thrilled the audience with his musical virtuosity along with fellow Hollywood Vampires band mates Johnny Depp and Alice Cooper.

Congratulations to this year’s Outstanding Technical and Creative Achievement winners.

The 33rd Annual NAMM TEC Awards returns to The NAMM Show January 27, 2018.
