Last week the Point Blank Los Angeles crew headed to NAMM 2017 – a music industry trade show described as ‘the largest in the world’ based in Anaheim, California. There, we scoped out the very latest in new gear from the world’s best manufacturers and of course took the time to jam with some! Between stalls we managed to tear ourselves away from the plethora of hardware to take a few snaps. Take a look below to see a snapshot of what went down at the event.

After the success of the OP-1, this is definitely one to watch, Teenage Engineering are making waves with some really unique hardware, with the OP-Z being the latest.The video synth has an expected release date of late summer 2017 and will apparently be less expensive than the OP-1, which comes up at around $849.
