What's new for string players at NAMM 2018?

January 26, 2018, 11:01 AM · 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?

This looks nice if you play with microphone or pickup.

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.

I have the L1 compact and the Tonematch (at least on that one) is really optimized for guitar as are most of these things. I still have to use a preamp.
