NAMM Show 2012: Fishman receives multiple awards for products and company vision

Coming off a brilliantly executed NAMM Show, Fishman created a buzz on the show floor with some game-changing new products and technologies, namely the Triple Play Wireless Guitar Controller.  With demonstrations at the top of every hour, Fishman’s booth was filled with dealers, industry experts, journalists, artists, and many others who were the first to witness Triple Play in action. With so much promise to live up to, Triple Play seemed to pull off the impossible, while at the same time being fun, accessible, and intuitive.

This groundswell of excitement quickly spilled onto the online forums and blogs with postings and comments indicating that Fishman had finally fulfilled the promise of a wireless guitar controller that truly works. Those in attendance were also excited that the new system will come complete without the need for additional hardware and will work right out of the box with whatever DAW you’re using.

Scheduled for release in early summer, Triple Play helped nab Fishman the honor of Best In Show: Companies to Watch, which is awarded by the publications Music Inc. and Upbeat Daily. Stay tuned for more information coming soon!

Additionally, the Fishman Loudbox Artist has won a 2012 Electronic Musician Editors’ Choice Award for “An Acoustic P.A. In Combo Clothing.” The Editors’ Choice Award recipients were officially announced in the February 2012 issue.

For two decades, the Editors’ Choice Awards have recognized the best new production tools for musicians, and this year, a “star team” of magazine staff and contributors selected your product as one of the 30 most groundbreaking products to emerge in the past twelve months (from AES 2010 to AES 2011).
In keeping with their highly successful magazine re-launch, Electronic Musician took a fresh, modern approach to the awards by creating categories that encapsulate what their editors consider to be outstanding about a product, with a lighter, applications-oriented slant that makes the award more meaningful, and more fun.
Fishman also took home a Music & Sound Award for Best Guitar Accessory, awarded to the Blackstack Soundhole Pickup. For the past 26 years, The Music & Sound Retailer magazine has been tops in rewarding industry leaders. Dealers, manufacturers and reps vote for their favorite retail locations and the best new products.

Thanks to all of the readers, editors and voters for awarding Fishman with these distinguished honors!
