    My first time going this year Thursday-Saturday. I got Media Passes with a friend of mine (we do a podcast called Gearbuds). Looking forward to checking it out!

    • I would love to check this out. Maybe give the Fender Bassman 100T a run for its money without the unnecessary complexity (and cost) that the 100T has.

    I’ve heard from several reliable sources that Fender will be releasing a package available for US and mIM guitars and basses called the Fender Ultimate Custom Kit. Apparently it consists of upgrades, decals, official papers, etc. Again, just a rumor but it sounds awesome to me.

    For a second I thought it was going to include 3 different grades of sandpaper and a small wood chisel.

    Hey, for all we know it does. Maybe the Fender Ultimate Custom Kit contains items you can use to ‘relic’ your own instrument. Gonna be awesome I bet!

    From what I've seen on Instagram, there will be new stuff by Darkglass and Source Audio.

    But no mention of the 1x8 or 1x10 ext cabinets. I hope that doesn't mean they are going away.

    I've been 5-6 times in my life. Not going to the show this year.
    But will for sure attend several of the nightly events, such as the TonyP show at the Tsunami Hang @ JT Schmids.

    NAMM has always been a highlight of the year for me, because I just flat-out love gear.
    I love meeting the guys that make the coolest bass and keys gear on earth, the ones that have become my heroes.
    Some of them will be there this year, others have retired and won't, and that's the way it goes.

    NAMM is a great place to connect with other musicians, friends, TB acquaintances, and aging rock stars (if that's a thing you're into, not me). That's a cool feature that you don't get many other opportunities to do.

    NAMM also is a big old pain in the arse because of the crowds, the noise, the NAMTRAXX virus, and especially due to the GAS it inevitably creates and the wait that ensues afterwards. Because NAMM stands for (Not Available until Mid May).

    And its just not bass GAS, for me personally.
    It's bass GAS, and keyboard GAS, and PA GAS, and mic GAS, gadget GAS, you get the picture.

    But, for one week a year, it's the center of the music universe, so you gotta love that.

    You have a great attitude Gary...I always look forward to seeing You my friend.

    I think we should have a GTG the night I'm playing.
    Devon will have some amazing basses and I will be grabbing one and playing it during the last song of my set.

    I was wondering when they were going to make an HH version. That's something I'll for sure give a demo to (if possible) just to see how it sounds. I'm planning to buy a Stingray Special 4HH, but it's good to see they are expanding the line.
  18. The folks at the Harmony Central forum do a pretty good job of covering the show and posting pics overnight.

    NAMM is fun - huge toy-store for gear-heads.
