NAMM 2010: Day Two highlights

And before you can say 'buffet breakfast at Disneyland' it's Day Two of NAMM 2010!

Following yesterday's show floor sweep, we've taken the best bits and gone in for a close-up: see Fender's G-DEC 3 in action, a working prototype of Teenage Engineering's OP-1 and Eigenlabs' Eigenharp Tau in glorious video. Or take a tour of the Orange stand (you may never see a brighter gallery on MusicRadar), the Fender stand and Akai's new iPK25 and APC20.

New product wise, if sheer volume was the name of the game, Peavey win, hands down. And with some 'revolutionary' releases from the likes of TC Electronic, heavenly partnerships in the shape of Ableton and Serato or Fender, Eric Clapton and, er... T-Mobile(!), we've only gone and topped Day One. Unbelievably, there's more to come...
