Orchestral Stringed Vendors & Companies at The Namm Show 2020 in Anaheim, California

Edited: January 1, 2020, 7:29 PM · Hello Violinist.com Bloggers,

My name is Peter and I am wondering if anyone knows of the Namm Show that is hosted in Anaheim, California! If so, then which companies that are associated with violin products usually attend, annually? I am a concurrent high school/college student that can attend but wants to make note of the orchestral stringed companies or vendors that rent booths there.

There are many violin-oriented vendors, just read through the list and then type up a list of those you are most interested in.

Mysteriously, my favorite non-gut string maker, Warchal, doesn't appear to be listed.

Usually there are no bench-made instruments, although perhaps some of the high-end instruments on display might be. I suggest also looking downstairs in Hall E, which by the way opens at 9:30 every morning (the main halls open at 10:00) where you'll find some smaller vendors, including some that sell fine woods. A few years ago, there was a maker from Cremona in Hall D, with a small both, but I haven't seen him in a while.
