Seen on the Scene: A Photo Tour of NAMM 2017, Part 1

The Annual NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA was jammed to the gills as usual with the latest in pro audio and the MI world. There was tons of gear, hundreds of exhibitors and the occasional celebrity, too—Stevie Wonder wandered the show floor and then reportedly got on stage at the nearby Marriott bar for an impromptu jam that blew away the lunch crowd. Everything we saw, we shared on our social media (www.facebook.com/prosoundnews and @prosoundnews on Twitter). Here’s some things that caught our eye.
