How would YOU sneak into the NAMM show?

I've always wanted to go to NAMM, but have never had a legitimate opportunity. I'm sure many of you out there have thought about going, but didn't have the music industry hooks to get in. If you were going to try to crash the party, how would YOU do it???

(BTW, this is meant as a HUMOR thread only...)

This one's easy! Just slip on a Vai costume and you'll not only get in, but have the red carpet rolled out for ya

I'd ship myself in a large crate via overnite air freight. I'd address the crate to be delivered drectly to the Ibanez booth.

Hamster costume.... The old shock and awe method. They'll be far too confused by a giant hamster... Ok... Maybe not...

Re: How would YOU sneak into the NAMM show?

Any facimile of a current or previous years badge will get you in the door. Security is a joke and always has been. It's not like they're taking a ticket or scanning anything, they glance at the badge and usher you through. Mid day they're more concerned with talking to each other than anything else. I always pin mine on a belt loop and my t-shirt always mostly covers it and a couple times security would say "badge?" and I'd flip up just the end of my shirt to barely expose it, and that's good enough for them. If you look like you have a badge, you're in, simple as that, and if that doesn't work at one entrance, there's about 20 more to try.

Empty a 4X12 cab, print out a speaker layout and put it in the front so I wouldnt be seen. Hide in a 24X20 bass drum. Stand up bass case.

I think i would do what Pee-Wee herman did when he tried to get into the Warner Brother's studio in "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure" and just follow a group of " "big-shots"all going in at the same time and laugh with them when one of them told a joke.
Or just dress up like buckethead and wear stilts.
