Vandoren at NAMM 2019: Exciting News and Product Releases

New Campaign - The Natural Choice

We're kicking off 2019 in absolute style. For over 100 years, Vandoren has been the natural choice for musicians and we'd like to keep it that way. Look out for your favorite artists blending in with the sun-kissed French cane, water from the Mediterranean sea, and green cane fields. Thank you for choosing our products. 


Redesigned Booth

This year, we've designed a booth that will light up the NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) hall. This year, we presented our new campaign and shined a new light. We love how it catches our attention, what do you think? 

Newest Products

It wouldn't be NAMM without the latest products from Vandoren. We're proud to add the following products to the family: 

Pink Gold M|O ligatures now available for Bb clarinet, bass clarinet, soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone saxophones

JUNO Reeds have expanded to include Eb clarinet, soprano, and baritone saxophones

The VandoJAM

The one night of jazz every musician waits for at NAMM: the NAMM VandoJam. We headlined Grace Kelly, Mark Gross, and Jerry Vivino in this year's jam and the energy in the room was absolutely infectious. We also heard from other Vandoren artists, including Danny Janklow, Albert Rivera, and Anthony Nelson Jr..


NAMM Board Induction

Our very own, Gary Winder, joined some of the great members of the NAMM board and we would love to extend our congratulations to his appointment!

DANSR Celebrates 15 Years

DANSR, Inc celebrates its 15th year in business. Along with partners Bill Gray and Greg Grieme, Michael Skinner took over as the Vandoren importer in 2004. Two years later they added Denis Wick, London.

“It does not seem possible that it’s been fifteen years,” commented DANSR president Michael Skinner. “We weathered the storm of the 2008 recession, our product lines continue to grow, and we’re still together as a partner group. I am incredibly proud of what we’ve done.”

Vandoren from Overseas

Members of the Vandoren France team join us every year for the NAMM show. We loved seeing Emmanuel Tonnelier, Sandrie De Matos, and Caroline Duvanel. 

L-R: Michael Fenoglio (USA), Caroline Duvanel (France), Sylvain Carton (USA), Emmanuel Tonnelier (France), Sandrie De Matos (France)
