Well, I'm off to the NAMM Show tomorrow! In case you're not familiar
with this extravaganza, the NAMM (National Association of Music
Merchants) Show is an annual event at which new music gear is
introduced. All of the major manufacturers - and many of the smaller
ones, as well - have exhibit booths at NAMM. There are non-stop product
demos, hands-on trials, and celebrity appearances too numerous to count.
There are also break-out sessions and educational events galore. It's
an exciting event, to say the least.
NAMM Show lasts for 4 days, and it's pure madness and mayhem, in all
the best ways. Unfortunately, the event is not open to the public. You
must be a manufacturer, retailer, recording artist, or have a product
endorsement deal, in order to be allowed in. Passes are extremely
limited, and tightly controlled through the use of barcodes, scanners,
and ID checks.
I'll be taking as many photos as time allows, and I'll post the best of them here.
