A Classic NAMM for Monster

NAMM 2016

PrintMonster’s 37th NAMM show was one for the history books. It seemed like every musician, producer, engineer, dealer, and rep that helped us build the Monster Cable Prolink line was in town and stopped by. All genres and eras were represented from Stevie Wonder and Jermaine Jackson, to Slayer and Ozzy, and the emerging acts of tomorrow.

Monster’s heritage is deeply rooted in modern pro audio starting the chain of Pure Monster Sound. In 1979, Head Monster Noel Lee focused on delivering the best audio experience possible. There was no better place to start than right at the beginning, the musician’s instrument.

This year we showed the all-new Monster Cable Prolink line with our strongest custom design connector ever. The line features a full mix of instrument, speaker, and mic cables built to fit your style.

Also new for this year was the Monster Tour Essentials line of mobile products for the touring musician. Must have gear when heading out on the road. Be it a 40 date tour or just a weekend on the road, Monster’s Tour Essentials keep you connected.
