Poolside sessions at this year’s NAMM Show
Away from the chaos of the NAMM Show, we invited some artists to hang out for some jams in the sunshine checking our latest gear.
From France we welcomed Hyleen, Nicolas Viccaro & Julien Boursin for some chilled out tunes played on a Yamaha PAC1611MS through a THR10 amp with the new Line 6 HX Effects, along with a DTX M12 and CS01. Joining us from Italy, Marco Filippini, Max Zaccaro, Alex Polifrone & Andrea Pollione put together a great session performed on a new CSF guitar, new TRBX604 bass, DTX M12 and reface CP. Demonstrating the BBP35 with the Line 6 HX Effects, Spanish Bass master Miki Santamaria swung by.
Finally, delving deeper into what the HX Effects can do with a Revstar RS502T, Line 6’s own Paul Hindmarsh joined us from the UK.
You’re the bedrock of your music. The foundation. The fundamental. The link. You need an instrument with the strength and power to perform. An instrument that gives you the freedom to innovate, to create and push the boundaries. You need a bass where everything‘s just right. Sound, feel, looks – nothing comes second.

Mike Stern's signature has been refreshed with Yamaha's exclusive wood treatment and finish. IRA (Initial Response Acceleration) technology shakes off the stress often found in new guitars and make them extremely vibrant and responsive. One-piece Maple neck is oil-finished for better comfort. PAC1611MS comes with a certificate personally signed by Mike to prove this guitar is perfectly crafted in his specification.
As the go-to instrument for some of the biggest names in bass since its introduction in 1977, players like Nathan East, Tony Kanal, Billy Sheehan, Glenn Hughes, Robbie Takac, Peter Hook, and Jack Gibson have made their signature sound with a BB. The new BB takes the iconic style and versatility of this classic bass, and its legendary sound, to a new level.
