A handy guide to previews

You can have the best intentions to get everything organized early, but with Thanksgiving and the holidays falling right when things are ramping up, those deadlines you set yourself will inevitably slip further and further back.

But this year, there’s one thing you don’t need to worry about keeping track of, and that’s the editorial deadlines for publications’ NAMM Show previews—thanks to a handy guide we’ve created to help inform your media relations strategy.
