An Expert Recap of the 2020 NAMM Show: Noise Reduction

+ more


We’re kicking off a new podcast, Noise Reduction, that takes on everything pro audio. MarketScale contributor and pro audio specialist Collyer Spreen provided his take on this year’s National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Show 2020 held recently in Anaheim, CA. The show covers anything and everything related to making music.

Collyer shared that music was, of course, his first love. “Drums were my passion from an early age, and music led me to my current career as a ‘gear enabler’ and trusted advisor in the industry.”

In his role as a pro audio specialist, he’s been a regular at the NAMM show for years. So in a world where information is available instantaneously, why are shows like this still important?

Collyer said, “It comes down to relationships. I’m always excited to see the new gear and test it out, but I go to keep building my relationships.”

At a show where you can find everything from instruments to software to sheet music, it’s certainly a sensory experience. “Understanding how new gear works and listening to vendors project their excitement. That’s really special.”

In a digital world, relationships still matter, in any industry. Collyer attends to keep learning about his craft and getting the intel on what’s out there and what it can do.

Check out all of Collyer’s insights along with some new gear that will make an impact in 2020.
