    Who's going to NAMM in Anaheim,CA next month?

    This would be my first and I'm psyched.

    Maybe we could have an informal TB GTG there.

    My first Anaheim show.

    ...and you're welcome! ;)

    TB GTG is definitely a good plan! :D

    Full disclosure, I'm a certified Fender technician working in a music store that carries Fender, Yamaha, and Ibanez products among others.
    I'll be there. And I'd love to meet some TB'ers in person.

    I'll be there at the MTD & Euphonics Audio booths my 24th NAMM year (Actually more than thirty shows summer and winter). Whew. For you first timers, be ready to be overwhelmed. Bring earplugs!

    If you guys want, I will host a little GTG at the Euphonic Audio Booth - perhap near the end of the day on Friday, then we can all go get some libation

    NAMM is a trade show, therefore you have to have "credentials". You can get credentials if you are a manufacturer, buyer, member of the press or a special guest. Some can get in via their local shop (if they are going and have an available pass). If you have a relationship with a manufacturer, then you can ask them for a pass ...beyond that it is difficult

    I just got confirmation a couple of days ago that I'll be performing there on the 21st backing an up and coming performer, ALexa Vetere, who's representing Manarik guitars. Gonna be on the celebrity stage at the Marriott 8 or 8:30 pm. I'm stoked. Never been to NAMM before, no idea what to expect. It would be great to hook up with you guys. Not sure what my shcedule is going to be like because we're going to be rehearsing the days we're there, but in my free time I'll probably be hanging around The Ernie Ball Booth, Vigier Guitars (got some friends there), and if the guys from BP magazine have a booth I'd like to go bother them some. :)

    My dictionary is in the other room, and my vocabulary has suffered since I discontinued my subscription to Readers Digest and stopped enriching my wordpower. What's libation?

    We definitely need to plan SOMETHING...


    ...I'll be easy to find, I'm the big 4-eyed goober that will be wandering aimlessly between the Bartolini, Aguilar, and Demeter booths - as these three companies have been kind enough to allow us to each display a bass in their booth (possibly two in the Bartolini booth). I will probably be more in evidence at the Demeter booth, (which will have two on display as well, if Adam F. decides to bring his personal LG 3000) as my personal bass will be on display there! :eek:

    I'll be there. And I'll be at the BassQuake, which will probably be Thursday evening, if they keep the tradition that's developed.
