NAMM 2023

April 22, 2023

We officially launched the Westerlund ONE at NAMM in Anaheim, CA. This was our first NAMM appearance and we got to be in LA Vintage Gear’s booth along with Grez Guitars and Benson Amps. We learned a lot from our more experienced boothmates and got to meet some of our favorite pedal manufacturers, influencers, enthusiasts and so many more. 

In January 2020, Shane and Matt went to NAMM to explore and learn in hopes of returning with product the following year. We talked a lot about launching at NAMM 2021 but little did we know that we’d be hit by a pandemic and a slew of setbacks. So being at NAMM this year was seriously an amazing experience that we did not take for granted.

We are so grateful to Clif Jones and his team at LA Vintage Gear for hosting us (and if you’re in the LA area head on over to LA Vintage Gear to try out a Westerlund ONE and their excellent selection of boutique gear)! We are also thankful to Barry Grzebic with Grez Guitar and Chris Benson and his crew at Benson Amps for showing us the ropes and giving our startup pedal business so much support. We’re forever grateful to you guys! 

Also thanks to everyone who came to The Imaginaries NAMM showcase to hear the ONE in action!

And last but not least, congratulations to Tyler Alford on winning this year’s pedal giveaway! We hope you get a lot of use out of your new ONE! 

See you again next year at NAMM 2024!
