NAMM 2020

The NAMM show 2020 was the culmination of months of hardwork, design and research, it was an overwhelming success for NSF Controls and the Free-Way switch range! Aaron, Wayne and Jason exhibited the revolutionary Free-Way Switch range alongside Alasdair Bryce (Free-Way Inventor) and Steve Sjuggerud an avid fan of the Free-Way switch.

Even before our booth was complete we were approached by people with some serious interest in the switch. On opening day Steve Sjuggerud introduced Jason to some influential contacts at NAMM, Frank at Fishman Pickups, Bob Gore, Brad Gillis, Ulrich Teuffel, Di Marzio Pick Ups, LSL instruments, Vik Guitars & Abasi Concepts all of who were very positive about the Free-Way Switch range and all that it offers. Steve also revealed his revolutionary ideas of how to further enhance the tone on coil split pickups, an exciting development!

In addition to our Free-Way range we were fortunate enough to have two world class Luthiers lend us their custom guitars for the weekend to showcase exactly what the Free-Way Switch is capable of. Rick Toone’s stunning ‘Little Angle Wings’ a custom 8 string guitar fitted with the 3B3 blade switch, had serious pulling power and unsurprisingly created a huge buzz around our booth. Neil Haynes, a UK based luthier also showcased two versions of the “Haynes Inflection” range with our 5B5 blade switches fitted.

Wayne also managed to successfully slip in to see Chapman Guitars, the most influential UK custom guitar company right now, we were lucky enough to grab ten minutes with Andy and Matt who have taken samples from our Free-Way range.  Most excitingly for Jason and Wayne when exploring the NAMM show they found some stunning guitars including Sereck Basses, Washburn Nuno Bettencourt “NELE” signature range & JJ Guitars all had various Free-Way models installed.   

Since returning to the office Jason is working through all the contacts we gained and beginning to make connections across the globe, launching the Free-Way switch range into the spotlight it truly deserves.
