In 2018, Delicious Audio and the Stompbox Exhibit had their biggest presence yet at the NAMM show, through a 10’x20′ Stompbox Booth shared by 15 pedal manufacturers and sponsored by PRS Guitars and Blue Headphones. Here’s a video of all the boards in the booth:

The booth was accompanied by the first NAMM issue of The Deli – the publication focused on emerging NYC artists that organizes this event! Here’s the digital version of the issue:

Visitors were able to borrow a six string by sponsor PRS Guitars to try the pedals in the headphones, which were provided by Blue Mic. Amp emulation was provided by Amplifire!

Within our booth, videographer Eric Merrow shot close to 100 videos of all the new pedals launched at NAMM!
