Now is the right time to become an American Federation of Musicians member. From ragtime to rap, from the early phonograph to today's digital recordings, the AFM has been there for its members. And now there are more benefits available to AFM members than ever before, including a multi-million dollar pension fund, excellent contract protection, instrument and travelers insurance, work referral programs and access to licensed booking agents to keep you working.
As an AFM member, you are part of a membership of more than 80,000 musicians. Experience has proven that collective activity on behalf of individuals with similar interests is the most effective way to achieve a goal. The AFM can negotiate agreements and administer contracts, procure valuable benefits and achieve legislative goals. A single musician has no such power.
The AFM has a proud history of managing change rather than being victimized by it. We find strength in adversity, and when the going gets tough, we get creative - all on your behalf.
Like the industry, the AFM is also changing and evolving, and its policies and programs will move in new directions dictated by its members. As a member, you will determine these directions through your interest and involvement. Your membership card will be your key to participation in governing your union, keeping it responsive to your needs and enabling it to serve you better.

Hafler’s P3100 two-channel amplifier offers high quality at an affordable price for both studio recording and audiophile listening. It produces 150 watts per channel into eight ohms, 200 watts per channel into four ohms, and may be bridged mono to produce 400 watts. Due to extensive heat sinks on both sides, the P3100 does not need a noisy cooling fan. In addition, a thermal sensing network monitors the heat sink temperature and shuts down to protect the amplifier from excessive operating heat. Plus, a sensing circuit monitors output and shuts down operation if it detects a short on the output, eliminating the need for internal fuses. The front panel features individual trim controls and an elaborate LED display for precise monitoring. The rear panel sports a choice of balanced XLR and quarter-inch TRS inputs for professional use, along with gold-plated unbalanced RCAs for audiophiles.
