Who's Going to NAMM 2017 in January?

Just curious who all is going this year, and if you'll be posting updates while you're there.

I screwed up. For the first time in my life, I actually had a company offer me a pass. However, I got busy and forgot to contact them in time (they made the offer about 8 months ago, and asked me to contact them by October... which I missed).

*sigh*

Perhaps next year.

Since I now have a guitar blog that's gaining a following, I looked into getting a Media Pass. But, after reading NAMM's requirements it would appear I still don't qualify as "media."

Not going but hoping Rich goes for the sake of the annual Ibanezrules NAMM report. I'm expecting alot this year for the whole 30th anniversary thing, definitely wanna see the specs of the PGM mikro that I'm pretty sure is releasing, and of course the 777's. Hoping for more lo-pro equipped MIJ 7-strings as well...

Pfff.... I thought being an Ibanez dealer comes with 3 keys of free coke per year.

Someday...maybe I will go to a NAMM. I almost got a pass through my friend that's a bassist that's endorsed by a few companies. He's probably my only hope to get a pass but it's not out of the question...life goals.

Re: Who's Going to NAMM 2017 in January?

I wish!! I went last year been invented by a company and it was the most mind-blowing experience of my life!! Within the first hour, Stevie Wonder walked by me and I met Victor Wooten and heard his conversation for tweaking his new bowed bass with Vinnie Fodera…. not to mention the other people I met and players I heard. :-O

Nope. Never really wanted to, oddly enough.

That's crazy talk!

No, seriously, I can definitely see how it may not be for everyone.

Re: Who's Going to NAMM 2017 in January?

It's definitely worth going to at least once and definitely an essential if you're in the industry.

Throughout the whole year people/brands/reps are always like "yeah we should do xyz" but NAMM is the time when you can force them to do XYZ

Also for anyone there this year, stop by the MXR booth and check my pedal out, it's the Precision Drive!
