Musikmesse 2014 set to kickoff March 12 in Frankfurt
Musikmesse 2014, the European equivalent of the Winter NAMM Show, is set to kickoff March 12 in Frankfurt Germany. The four day convention will run through March 15 and like its U.S. counterpart, will feature the latest in guitar, tech, drum, amps, and DJ gear.
While all the big guitar manufacturers unveil their new offerings at NAMM, most of them hold back a model or two for Musikmesse. Typically you’ll see new custom shop offerings or signature models.
Boutique guitar amps with retro design and a lot of tube valvage have been the in thing in the U.S. for a few years now. But these types of amps are just starting to make major headway in Europe, where typically more confined living arrangements makes their smaller footprint ideal. Anyway, you can expect to see lots of these sorts of amps making the rounds at Musikmesse this month.
In all, Musikmesse will feature over 1,500 exhibitors from over 50 different countries around the world. And as at the NAMM show, Musikmesse will also feature live performances from top professional players, stars, and industry insiders.
