What's new for string players at NAMM 2018?
OK Laurie, I'm assuming that you're going to NAMM. I can't wait to hear a report about all the new and exciting things for string players. Well?
That Bose S1Pro does look like an interesting amp for violinists. It appears that they left off phantom power for condenser microphones unfortunately, a regrettable omission that's too common on lower cost amps. The inclusion of a simplified "Tonematch" engine is very nice. Such devices are the key to rich amplified violin sounds, in my experience.
It's always nice to have a battery option too.
There are a bunch of new Baggs pedals for (electric) acoustic instruments which I'm sure will work with violin.
