Christian Henson’s NAMM 2016 Report

This was our second trip to Anaheim and as the kindly organisers had allowed us from the “Naughty Hall” (E where start ups and debutants reside) we thought we’d land with a splash and ship out a simply gorgeous stand that reflected our pure and honest approach to making sounds.


Its always a nervy start to any major event like this so everyone had to find their sea legs. But we were delighted with how people were responding to us this year and thank everyone who came to see us for their kind words of encouragement.

On day one we were proud to launch our second outing with the kindred spirit that is Olafur Arnalds.


With the conference in full swing many of the Spitfire team were delighted to meet with their legends, Homay and Harnek bumped into Dave Smith (above), Christian shook hands with Bernard Purdie and Stevie Wonder casually walked past our stand.

But we kept ourselves busy with other Spitfire business namely welcoming BT to our stand to announce...

Day three

With throngs of people parading past our stand we were proud to welcome Damir Price of Red Cola to demo his approaches to his incredibly successful career as a trailer music maker and to talk about his collection of sounds made in collaboration with us, the Trailer Giant series.

We were also very proud to announce a bumper set of new products for 2016:

day four

With things slowing down we were able to let our hair down a little bit. But not before announcing our last release of NAMM 2016:

The whole Spitfire team would humbly like to thank everyone for their kind words too numerous to count. To all the new friends we made and for all the hard work everyone at NAMM put in. We really look forward to seeing you all next year. Next stop Messe.

On a personal note I would love to thank the dogged hard work and unstoppable enthusiasm of the Spitfire crew and the troops holding the fort back in London. Paul and I are truly proud and honoured to be working with you all and look forward to many years of pride filled and rewarding times with you all. You’re a bunch of diamonds you really are.
