News: NAMM and Musikmesse come to Russia

NAMM and Messe Frankfurt to Launch New Russian Trade Shows in May 2012

NAMM musikmesse RussiaProlight+Sound NAMM Russia
NAMM is joining Messe Frankfurt, producers of Musikmesse, Music China, Prolight + Sound, and Prolight + Sound Shanghai, to co-produce two new trade shows in Russia. Both organizations are working to grow new markets and encourage professional development and music education in the region 
The new shows, NAMM Musikmesse Russia and Prolight + Sound NAMM Russia, will take place in Moscow's Expo Centre May 16–19, 2012. NAMM Musikmesse Russia will focus on the musical instrument sector, while the Prolight + Sound NAMM show will concurrently represent pro audio, lighting and event technology.
The Russian musical market is potentially the largest in Europe, characterized by a population of about 145 million people, a developed musical culture and sustainable growth trends. The volume of the Russian musical instruments and technologies market is estimated at USD 450 million. In addition, Moscow is a city known for music appreciation and performance; it's home to nearly 170 secondary music schools, 15 culture/arts universities, 32 concert halls, 173 theatres and many other musical venues.
Companies exhibiting at these shows have the potential to start building business beyond Russia, a gateway for the entire Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS)—with a population close to 300 million people. The CIS market is far from saturated in brands; the current capacity for new products is projected at a mere 40 percent of potential market volume.The partnership of the Russian shows is an extension of the cooperation of Music China in Shanghai where NAMM provides professional development classes to support market growth.
“With its events in Frankfurt and Shanghai, Messe Frankfurt has vast experience of the industries concerned and in the organization of fairs and exhibitions,” says Cordelia von Gymnich, vice president of Messe Frankfurt, Entertainment/Media & Creation. “Moreover, Messe Frankfurt has an extremely good international network, which provides a solid base for the expansion of our activities. We are particularly pleased that NAMM is a partner with equally good knowledge of the markets. The resulting partnership of equals will generate a multiplicity of positive effects for the musical-instrument and event-technology sectors in the CIS and the adjoining countries.” 
“NAMM and Messe Frankfurt working together to open up the Russian, CIS, Eastern European and the Baltic States markets is a good thing for the global industry, as it gives manufacturers and distributors a professional platform to seek out new buyers and improve relations with existing ones,” says Joe Lamond, president/CEO of NAMM. “As partners with Messe Frankfurt in this new venture, we look forward to serving our global NAMM Membership by increasing the size of the market and helping more people there experience the enjoyment and many proven benefits of playing music.”

Jim Root: Orange Terror Head demo at NAMM

Slipknot’s Jim Root to launch his signature gear on the Orange Booth at NAMM
Orange Amplification is proud to announce the Signature #4 Jim Root Terror Head and cab, developed in association with the famed guitarist.
Jim Root has the incredible honour of showcasing his skilful playing with two of today’s best in American hard rock– the multi-Grammy nominated Stone Sour and the Grammy winning Slipknot. He has a wide range of playing styles, which come together to create a unique, uncompromising sound and tone.
The Signature #4 Jim Root Terror Head is modelled after the dirty channel on the same amp that Jim Root plays in the studio and on the road: the Orange Rockerverb 100. This all-tube, 15-watt amp is capable of far more than high gain rock and metal though. With a full 3-band EQ players will find it easy to dial in everything from vintage rock, blues and beyond. The addition of a tube-driven FX loop allows the user to take the tone in any direction they want.
His new Signature #4 Jim Root PPC212 cab has been developed alongside the head to bring you Jim’s full tone! The new cab is finished in black vinyl with a specially developed black version of the Orange basket grill cloth and proudly features the signature #4 plate on the front. With a closed back design, the cab has a tight bottom end and delivers Jim’s signature Orange tone.
Said Jim of the name on the signature head, "With this amp, simply giving it the number I use in Slipknot seemed logical. I've not been to apt to splash either band logo or artwork all over things, but this will be the beginning of the end of that...maybe"
To complement Jim’s own style and image, the Signature #4 Terror Head is formidable and attention grabbing, featuring the vintage ‘Pics Only’ logo in white on a black chassis. The rear of the amp has both the Slipknot and Stone Sour logos.
Volume, Gain, Bass, Mid and Treble Controls
12AT7-Driven FX Loop
1 x 16 Ohm and 2 x 8 Ohm Outputs
Switchable Between 15/7 Watts
This is a simply essential tool for any guitarist from any playing background. Quality built for the huge sound, lush tones and high gain necessary for rock and metal music, but versatile enough to be useful in any situation!
Jim Root will be personally launching his signature #4 products on the Orange Booth #4890 Hall C at NAMM at 2pm on Saturday 21st January.
