NAMM 2024: NAMM dates, news and rumors for guitars, synths, music tech and more

NAMM 2024: The NAMM show is making a welcome return to its regular time slot this January 25-28 at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. After a couple of years of shifting dates thanks to COVID, it is back to hopefully doing what it does best: bringing us mountains of gear music news to digest, and instruments and equipment to look forward to for the year ahead. 

The last NAMM show pre-pandemic had a generally positive buzz that we’d not felt at the show in years.

To say it’s been a tumultuous time for trade shows after over last few years would be an understatement. Thanks to COVID, the bottom dropped out of the events business, and the big shows that announce new products were hit hard. None have been more affected than the video games industry where the biggest trade show of them all, the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), succumbed to COVID and is now closed for good.
