NAMM 2014

Eliton at NAMM 2014

It’s been a few years, but we are back at the NAMM show with our c.ton. We’ve got a bigger booth, better presence, and of course [finally] instruments!

So far the resonance has been great. Many musicians have stopped by—and we’ve received congrats all around. People love the c.ton and praise it for the exact reasons why we even started Eliton and created our first instrument—its realistic feel, amazing portability, and unparalleled universality. Oh, and people are eager for us to release a portable upright bass as well! Luckily that’s already in the works, so stay tuned for that! Two more days to go, and we hope for many more great encounters.

We show to c.ton to Stephan Schertler, founder of Schertler SA.

Speaking of which, we played our c.ton in the Eastman Booth on an amazing Schertler amp, and lo-and-behold, Stephan Schertler himself came up, played a bit on our cello, and commented on how authentic it felt, and the problems it solved.

Lastly, we made a pretty amazing contact with Antony Rabar, a wood manufacturer out of Australia. His new company, Big Sky Timber, is the foremost Australian exporter of atelier quality woods. He has access to some of the most unique timbers in the world, many of which grow only in Australia. Just look at the Grey Box Eucalyptus microcarpa!

Check out his site for more images of wood you have never seen before. Who knows, maybe we’ll have a few c.ton‘s in the near future out of this exotic stuff.

Well, back to the show for us, and stay tuned for further updates—like our experience with the iRig Pro from IK Multimedia!
