Dixon wrapped an extraordinary weekend at the NAMM Show 2017 this winter at the Anaheim Convention Center in California! It was our best show yet, with a brand new booth, exclusive kits and finishes, live performances from endorsers Gregg Bissonette, John Mader, Jerry Gaskill, and more, artist signings, and a spectacular Snare-A-Day Giveaway.
One of the highlights of the show was our Dixon stage, where Dixon artists packed the booth each day with performances on two of our featured kits, the Jet Set Plus and new variation of the Dixon Little Roomer (available Fall 2017). Check out these scenes from the show!

Another focal point was our Snare-A-Day Giveaway, where we gave away a featured snare drum every day of the show, along with cool Dixon swag bags and custom headphones from Direct Sound. Check out some of our Grand Prize snares, including the Dixon Classic Series maple snare and Gregg Bissonette Signature snare!
On display at the show were some of our new kits, including our custom Dixon Artisans for endorser John Blackwell, the Limited Edition Motion Blue Burst kit, and Limited Run FUSE series kit with Zebrawood laminate.
And look who stopped by!
The NAMM Show was a great start to an exciting new year for Dixon! In the midst of the business and bustle of the show, the Dixon booth was a haven for drummers to enjoy community, discover the latest in Dixon innovation, and get to know us and the Dixon family in person.
