"Samson makes great products," says Matt Bachand, guitarist for 2008 Grammy-nominated SHADOWS FALL. "I get flawless performance from their products and they're great people. I love working with them and using their gear."

Samson will also have a variety of artists provide demonstrations for the music-hungry masses of NAMM in addition to autograph signing. These artists include Stu Hamm, Byron Miller, George Lynch, JD DeServio and Nick Catanese of BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, Brazilian guitar sensation Kiko Loureiro (ANGRA), members of QUEENSRŸCHE, along with other world-renowned musicians.
