NAMM 2014: Navene Koperweis (ex-Animals as Leaders) Jamming at Tama’s Booth

I managed to catch a few minutes of Navene Koperweis at Tama’s booth. It wasn’t a scheduled performance. In fact, most times I passed by there in my frantic jaunts from one meeting to the next he was there making mince meat of those rubber pads. So eventually I thought “I really need to get some of this recorded,” and did so while my fellow Gear Gods writer Trey was filming Jake Bowen unveiling his new signature guitar from Tama’s sister company Ibanez.
