We're so excited to be returning to the The NAMM Show this year! For years IMC has visited this conference specially held for music retailers like us, musicians, instrument manufacturers, and other leaders in the music industry.


Due to COVID restrictions The NAMM Show has been a virtual educational event (NAMM Believe in Music) for the last couple of years, and while we were happy to attend virtual sessions, and chat with our colleagues online about new products NOTHING beats the experience of going to The NAMM Show in person.


It's an opportunity for us to engage face to face with the folks who create the instruments we all play.

Each time we attend The NAMM Show we challenge each of our staff members who attend to scope out the latest and most innovative products, all in a different category, that way we have eyes on all types of instruments: drums, guitars, ukuleles, woodwinds, brass, pianos, sheet music, gifts, you name it. The NAMM Show is gigantic and there's no way we could see it all without our awesome staff.


See: this photo of Michael Santander when he absolutely lost his mind over that red Casiotone keyboard a couple years ago. He thought it was great, we all took at look at it and decided, "Yeah! Tucson musicians would want this! Let's stock it!" And sure enough, we couldn't keep them in stock!



We can't wait to show you what we find at this year's NAMM show, and are grateful for the opportunity to connect as a staff. It's moments like these where we really get to see our employees shine as musicians. Thank you for your patience while we take the day out to attend the show, and we'll see you again June 6th!
