    So, I go to NAMM and come back with an order placed for a BSX Allegro 5 EUB!!!!
    It should be here in about 6 weeks.
    Also working on a deal with Eden!! We'll see on this one, kinda like a regional endorsement of sorts.

    Met John Turner as well. Nice guy and to see him move around on that crazy ass 7 string Ritter of his is nuts!!
    And speaking of Ritter.........Oh my FREAKING GOD are they sweet.
    I didn't want to like them, thought they were too outside of my box looks wise, and to me ones like that usually don't deliver the goods as much as their price tag says.
    But these things are silly nice. The slightest right hand position change and you have different sounds. In passive they are super flexible and when you kick on the pre-amp, no change in volume.
    I didn't want to like them, I really didn't ;)
    John can jump in on the details about the inner workings of the bass.
    I didn't take any pix of basses, figured everyone else would, but I did get pix of chicks!! And Bernard Purdy, Bootsy and Victor Wooten with Steve Bailey.
    BTW, did anyone else catch the stunning woman from Coffin Case?? Not the porn star chick there on Sat, but the rep from them with her hair up and in the brownish print dress??
    I'm in love! :D (and I did get my picture with her too!)
     
  2. PICS??!!! :D

    Yup! I think the rule is that you didn't meet her if we don't see the pics! :p

    Those EUB's are amazing, I got to try one for a while. real Comfy.

    ...that coffin case girl was pretty smoking... there was a tatooed chick at the Core One booth that was pretty crazy looking.

    I didn't even know that Bootsy was there... I only knew that Bernard was there cause Jauqo had mentioned it. The Ritter, LowEnd and Adler booths were really close to mine, so I was entertained in the slow periods.

    This Summer's NAMM didn't have the turn out many hoped for, but then again a bunch of manufacturers didn't even show... heck, a bunch of my dealers weren't even there...
