    I'm going on Saturday. Who are the must see clinicians that day?
  8. I'll be there. I sure hope they get the HWY 5 fixed before then or it will add a 2 hour delay for anyone driving down from north of LA. They said last night that it looks like it will take a week to fix.
  9. It's on the 20th or something, right?

    How do you guys get in anyways, I thought it was not open to public. Can we ride the coat tails of our favorite shops and builders that reside around here? Do they have extra passes they give out?

    I'd love to go to Indy this summer since it's not far from me :)

    To those going, be nice to my Schroeder cab they're showing off (3101212). Once the shows done, it's shipped to my doorstep :)

    Take pictures with it, and send them to me, it will be fun.

  15. So am i.... :hyper:
  16. I'm wondering the same thing, I'd like to go to the indy show if it were open to the public. I don't know much about these events.

    You need to be a member of NAMM to get in. Of course, to be a member of NAMM, you need to be a music retailer, distributor, manufacturer, etc... In other words, a music related business.

    Depending on your business type and membership type, you get a certain number of passes. You can distribute those how you wish, presumably to employees. They cannot be sold, however. Bad Karma there.

    So to get in: Be a member of NAMM, be employed by a member of NAMM or be a friend, endorser, drinking buddy, whatever of a member of NAMM. I actually had three different companies offer me passes this year.

    Are there any music businesses that you have a good relationship with? Ask if they're going.
  18. I also belive that if you are on a major record label or are an endorsed player, you can get in. I think that's how JT and Fhodshon get in.

    I don't remember how Spanky gets in, though. How do you do it?
