NAMM 2022 News: All the Latest Guitar News, Rumors and Predictions

NAM 2022: It’s been a minute, but NAMM is back for 2022 — and we’re here to bring you all the hottest news on gearing up at the familiar Anaheim Convention Center venue during the not-so-familiar month of June.

After canceling this year’s Summer NAMM show in Nashville and moving January’s flagship event to June 3-5, the National Association of Music Merchants is promising a “greatest hits” gear night for its 2022 affair – this which looks pretty good to us.

This year’s list of companies is a little different from past shows, so we’ll be sharing all the major gear releases around the event here, as well as the latest show action on our live blog from NAMM on June 3. .

Here’s what to expect from your year in gear…

  • Blackstar has launched its all-new St. James Series of amps, featuring “the world’s lightest 50-watt valve guitar amps,” and packed full of smart tech, including sounds powered by Cab Rig software and new Celestion Zephyr speakers.
  • What will Vox bring to the table this year? More Nutube technology? New variations on its semi-hollow Bobcat? The world will implode if we don’t see at least one limited edition AC30 colorway.
  • The Spark Mini will be Positive Grid’s NAMM balloon belle, though we’d be surprised if we don’t see another launch or two.
