NAMM 2018: More from EMD

EMD is having a busy Winter NAMM with product launches right across the board. Among guitars, in addition to the new solid bodied electrics we wrote about last week, there is also a new acoustic line under the Stagg brand – the SA35 series.

Stagg Acoustic Guitars

Buyers are offered the choice between between auditorium or slope shouldered dreadnought models which come as pure acoustics or with pickups. EMD says the SA35s have C-shaped neck profiles, ultra thin finishes for improved sound and die-cast machine heads. Prices will start at an impressive £136.25.

Also new is a fresh range of straps from Stagg.

For wannabe drummers, EMD has launched a three piece junior drum set with hardware- 8”/10”/12”, 12” x 10” bass drum (6 lugs) x 1 10” x 4.5” snare drum (4 lugs) with stand x 1 8” x 3.5” tom (4 lugs) with holder x 1 8” crash cymbal with holder x 1 all for a pretty impressive £164! There is also a larger kit for the more ambitious.

EMD says: ‘The Stagg Junior Kit is a fantastic way to excite children about the drums, while learning rhythm, timing and coordination. Available in 3 and 5-piece combinations, these colorful kits are great starting points for the aspiring beat-keeper! With all the features of a full-sized kit but on a smaller scale, the Junior Kit gets kids playing’.

Not ignoring the traditional instruments sector, EMD also showed its redesigned Premier Levante series which includes trumpet, trombone and a clarinet.
