Every January, the pro audio community descends upon a specified location to debut the latest and greatest gear that will be making an impact in the coming year. For 2016, the scene for the conference has been set in Anaheim, California, and we're getting into the action with a few unique events throughout the weekend.

Vintage King / Gearslutz NAMM Open House

We were fortunate enough to have last year's NAMM convention land right outside our backdoor and this year is no different, as the weekend's festivities will take place less than an hour away from our Los Angeles storefront. In order to celebrate, we've teamed up with the forum moderators over at Gearslutz for a NAMM Open House unlike any other! During the last day of NAMM, Sunday, January 24th, we're inviting all of those attending the convention to come North to Vintage King Los Angeles to meet up with some of the leading manufacturers in pro audio and their latest gear, including Apogee Electronics, Aston Microphones, Manley Labs, Meris, Mojave Audio, Royer Labs, UnderTone Audio, Universal Audio, Soyuz Microphones and more. For those who haven't visited our store, this is also a chance to explore what makes our brick and mortar locations different from their typical pro audio counterparts. If you have visited our store before, take this opportunity to check out our recent improvements including a brand new critical listening room. Would you like to attend our Open House?! Great! We're excited to have you visit Vintage King Los Angeles!
