Whereas Saturday is party time at NAMM, Sunday is when everybody gets down to business. Sunday is when the deals are made, making for more of a mellow, businesslike atmosphere. With the circus dying down, you can experience the instruments in more of a hands-on way.

It's always exciting to see the new products introduced at NAMM, from complex audio interfaces down to cowbells. This year some of the showcased items were Yamaha's Rock Tour Series drum kits, Vater's Bamboo Splashsticks, and Paiste's Alex Van Halen signature model 24" Big Ride Cymbals. Monster presented several audiophile model headphones including Dr. Dre's Beats as well as Miles Davis Tribute earbuds for jazz afficionados.

Wandering over to the heavy metal section late Sunday the party was still raging. Ain't no stoppin the rockin.
