About the Namba Gear Blog?
Why a product blog site? It used to be that companies thought that all you needed to do with your website is show potential customers pretty pictures of your products, and that was enough; in fact, most still do. What has happened recently is the marvelous phenomenon of social networking and community.
I hope that we are able to bring you interesting content, not only about Namba Gear and our products, but also serve as a resource, whether you are trying to humanize a drum track or license a song. We’ll also just tell some music related stories which you will be able to find under the category, Tribal Drums. It is kind of an irreverent and possibly “politically incorrect” viewpoint that you get from us. But we hope that we can lend a bit of support and a smile to your musical endeavors. Peace.
