API has just returned from the 2017 NAMM Show in Anaheim, California. The booth was bustling throughout the show, with attendees and audio pros from around the world eager to check out API's gear.
API launched four new products at NAMM, including the second generation TranZformer GT Guitar Pedal and LX Bass Pedal, and the 3124V Mic Preamp, along with the 3124MV Mic Pre. The second generation TranZformer Series sees the addition of new features such as a hard wire bypass switch, universal +18VDC power supply, and an LED indicator that monitors input and output stage clipping. The 3124V and 3124MV are essentially the same units as the 3124+ and 3124mb+, with the addition of front panel Variable Output Level Control and a switchable 3:1 output transformer selection. All new units were well received by attendees and press outlets.
Also on display were API's 500 series modules and frames, rack mount products, and the 1608 and BOX console, along with the new large format Legacy AXS Console, which proved to be a real crowd pleaser. API collected several awards throughout the show, including a TEC Hall of Fame Award for the lunchbox® and a NAMM TEC Award for the 512v Mic/Line Preamp. Roots blues guitarist Justin Johnson and bassist Chris McLernon provided demos for the TranZformer Series over the course of the show, and filled the aisles each time. API's booth even saw a visit from Stevie Wonder, who played the Marcodi Harpejji through API's TranZformer GT Guitar Pedal.
Thanks to all who stopped by our booth and showed their support and enthusiasm for API at the NAMM Show!
