    Alrighty, Im a nub for a bass player, only a touch over a year under my belt, so Im not down with the undergroudn world yet :p

    What exactly IS NAMM? Is there a website, could a 16 year old get in? :)

    Also, any info on the Darryl Jones Sig Lakland. Ive been drooling over those for a while now.

    It was a war in the 1970s.

    Its actually a music industry tradeshow. Companies show off all their nice new shiney products. I'm not sure of the convention's website. Try googling it.

    $175 for lunch! You stole that food! I paid $175 for water bottles!!! (not to mention walking all the way outside to get them):rolleyes: :D

    Most of us don't pay that $175 to go, most (me) mooch off a friend or relative in the industry and go as a visitor through their company. I went through Mackie.

    BTW, Mackie had a GREAT display this year, too bad they got bought out for so little. I hope some of you guys got to check it out.

    Hmm, time to find a friend in the business then :D
  12. I went home for lunch...

    And it only cost me 40 bucks to get a pass from a local music shop.
    And last year I photocopied a pass and got in. I wouldn't have been able to do it this year, becuase it seemed like they actually cared to check these things this time around.
