  2. I follow Instagram / Facebook accounts of manufacturers. Some have been posting articles or pictures of items they will be bringing to NAMM. Some have been sending email newsletters. When NAMM comes closer, @wintremute usually creates a thread where he uploads tons of photos taken during the show. I always subscribe to the thread and remain glued to it throughout the weekend.

    This year, under advice from my wife and friends, I'm not going to be posting as many pictures during NAMM. In the past what I would do is take pictures all day, then go back to my room and spend hours uploading them, missing out on events and sleep.

    This year I'm going to attend more of the after NAMM activities, post a few pictures, and get some sleep. The following Monday I'll start the task of posting all of the pictures.

    That sounds remarkably sane.

  7. Completely understandable. Your health is most important. Thank you for posting the pictures the prior years.
  8. Bergantino posted this. Aside from the name, we do not know much yet about their new line of speakers.

    I'll be there working as media taking photos of whatever I come across that's interesting or newsworthy, so if there is something you all want me to photograph or attempt to demo, feel free to post it here or PM me. The show is very overwhelming to try and walk aimlessly through, so any requests to see something helps me to set out a path.

  10. Darkglass debuts new lighter-weight speaker cabinets, which are already listed for sale at Sweetwater.

    "In the music industry, the era of compromises is over. The modern musician expects it all: flexibility, amazing tone, power-handling, and portability. All in one product!

    We are very excited to announce a new cabinet line that embodies all of these qualities.

    Featuring the same gorgeous, distinctive Darkglass look with carbon-fiber Tolex, now loaded with custom-made Eminence® neodymium drivers for a super low-weight solution with the massive and present tone, performance, and... reliability we are known for.

    But that’s not all! In addition to 210 and 410 configurations, we have two new models: 2x12 and 1x12 for additional sonic possibilities and enhanced portability.

    These new cabinets are the perfect match for our award-winning amplifier line.

    Hopefully manufacturers are starting to realize that they need to reduce the lag time between showing new product to the public and having them available for purchase. Which is a really good thing.

    Even 10 years ago it was no big deal to debut a product with a prototype at NAMM and not have it hit stores for 6 or 7 months. But as industry coverage has gotten to where there's now same-day videos, the GAS is wearing off if you make people wait too long.

    I was looking at the Ibanez EHB that's going to "officially" debut at NAMM and it's already listed online as being delivered in March. That's a lot better than July/August. If they make that date.

    Yep. Production of new basses has been outlawed in the United States due to the new CITES regulations. Used sales are still legal withing US borders. Tubes have been outlawed, all amps must be class D to conform to European market safety regulations. All amplifiers must now have a decibel governing device to keep overall db exposure under 90db, as established by OSHA.
