I'm a gear geek. I'll admit it.
When I was asked to cover NAMM for Best Buy Canada, I was on cloud nine. The show was busy and we had a lot of appointments with vendors with a focus to get a first look at the exciting gear that Best Buy will be offering you.
Along the way, I HAD to take a look at the gear that I'd love to take home to my studio. Here are some of the products I saw that had me checking my bank account.

The trip to NAMM this year was packed! I thought I'd write a post of some things that personally caught my eye in a head-scratching way. My francophone counterpart, Marc-Andre and I walked dozens of kilometers over the past four days.
Here's a few of the things that made me go hmmm ...
(including the 24 string bass guitar shown here!)
From what I understand, Best Buy and ESP are negotiating an exclusive model of their guitars that you can only get through Best Buy. Unfortunately, I can't share any details about that deal at this point in time.
However, I took a spin through the ESP booth today and was left speechless by what I saw. There are some beautifully crafted guitars hanging on the walls throughout the booth. The folks at ESP obviously like building guitars and are very creative .... to the extreme! To placate your interest, take a look at the photos of the models we found there...
Gibson showed us some truly beautiful guitars in the Melody Maker and SG lines. They are celebrating their 120th anniversary this year and have added some really tasteful extras to their lines to celebrate.
What I really found exciting was the Min-ETune feature hardware that Gibson demonstrated to us. Will this be the end of manual tuning?
Whether your style is searing rock or acoustic folk, the right guitar will help you sound and feel like a superstar. From acoustic guitars to electric hybrids to bass guitars, there’s a guitar designed exactly for the way you play. You’ll be rocking out in no time when you choose a guitar from Best Buy’s selection of top brands like Fender, Yamaha, Squier, Schecter, Mahalo, Dean Guitars and more.
An acoustic guitar is a great instrument to learn on. It has no built-in electronics or circuitry, is relatively lightweight, and can easily be taken anywhere. For a different acoustic sound, you can also learn to play the ukulele, a small, traditional Hawaiian guitar with four strings.
No other instrument can make you feel more like a rock god than the electric guitar. It uses a magnetically induced electrical signal to produce sound from the vibrations of the metal strings. An amplifier connected to the guitar helps to strengthen the signal and add “colour” or different tones to the sound.
For the ultimate in musical multi-tasking, get the instrument that doesn’t mind doing a little double duty. Acoustic electric hybrid guitars are actually electric guitars that can produce both the tones of an acoustic guitar and the rocking sounds of an electric guitar.
The bass guitar resembles an electric guitar, but with a longer neck and scale length. You primarily use your fingers or thumb to produce a low, deep bass sound. Typical ways to play a bass include fingering, popping, thumping, slapping and picking.
