    NAMM just released the 2014 interactive floor plan ...


    When cruising thru Hall E, stop in an say hi. Regenerate will be at booth 1574 this year, and just a booth or two away from Dingwall and Roscoe.

    all the best,

  2. I'll be there, probably won't remember a thing as usual.

    I was just reviewing our booth location, and realized you were right around the corner, and my buddy Sheldon was catty-corner from us on the same square.

    Looking forward to it this year!

    Got my badge registration. Hall E is always an interesting journey. You have a ton of great boutique builders and a ton of Chinese OEM's. I usually only get down there for one lap on Sunday and by then I think everyone is pretty tired of the circus and it's a little more laid back.

    Line 6 is back in the big room after a year in a smaller one. Makes me think they might have something bigger to launch.
    Pearl moved upstairs.
    KMC Moved in with Fender.
    Not a whole lot has changed.

    I made my schedule from a calendar instead of a map last year. I won't make that mistake this year. Getting from the third floor to the first in a hurry isn't fun. Sad not to see G&L on the list. They don't always go.

    I'll be there, in Hall C.

    It will be interesting for me, as it's my first time at NAMM, period. So, I'll be getting the full experience (as an artist, as well as an industry member).
  6. awesome map! Thanks for posting!

    This will be my first year attending and I'm pumped! My wife's endorsement badge fell through. Does anyone have an extra badge available that I could procure for her? I'll pay in beer or cash :D
  7. Does anyone have a badge I can have? I've lived next to Anaheim all my life but I've never been able to attend because of that stupid badge...please someone let me attend this year!

    G&L, BBE and SKB are all in your back yard. Know anyone who works there? Know anyone in the industry at all?

    Good luck. I live in Anaheim too and have never been able to get a "golden ticket" either.
  10. Um...Guys they usually have one day that's open to the general public...

    Not in Anaheim. The Anaheim show is strictly industry only, unless they changed it this year.

    I've actually got a Berklee Student Badge...not sure if any other exceptions are made?

    It'll also be my first Namm experience. Very excited! Anything I should expect or bring? Some of you guys sound like Veterans! hehe

    Yep, good call, but earplugs are definitely job one.

    I'm getting pumped. I am setting up a bunch of new lines this year. Lots of really cool stuff too. Any TB events going on? My evenings are freer than usual.

    We will be sharing the booth with Sadowsky Guitars this year, so be sure to stop by and say hello!

    Playing a Sadowsky bass through a Baer rig sounds like a little slice of bass heaven. Definitely a must-visit for me this year.

    Cool beans. I'll be there either Thursday or Friday and Sunday for sure. Maybe I'll get to meet Keith this time.
