Another wild and wacky NAMM show has come and gone. Here are a couple of picture and videos.
So, once again, I got to hang out at the EASTWOOD booth at this year’s NAMM 2010 show. I wrote a report for these pages on my first trip, but haven’t done one since mostly because the show is pretty much the same every year.
Well folks, if you have not made plans to attend NAMM 2009 this year, it’s not too late. Eastwood Guitars will be exibiting at booth #1155 again this year. BUT! For the first time, Joey Leone and Wendell Ferguson with be at the booth, at the same time, Friday Jan 16th. No promises, but maybe we can talk them into one of these jams.
Like a tornado ripping through town, the 2007 NAMM show came and went. For Eastwood Guitars, it was our first – and what an eye-opening experience it was. Although exhibiting in the 4-day event cost as much as buying a first home in Winnipeg, in hindsight, it was worth every penny. What a trip! Here are some observations from the helm of Eastwood.
The NAMM show is incredibly HUGE. It’s fitting that it’s across the street from Disneyland, as you end up walking just as much as you would at the self-proclaimed happiest place on earth (not when there’s a million guitars across the street, Walt). On a further plus, there’s a lot less puke and fewer children at the NAMM show.
For the first time since we started Eastwood Guitars in 2002, we will be exhibiting at the NAMM show in Anaheim California. For those who don’t know, NAMM is the National Assc. of Music Makers. This trade show is a once a year event where music industry people meet to share their knowledge and check out “what’s new” in the world of music.
