NAMM 2013 IN REVIEW
NAMM 2013
For those not in the know - NAMM (the National Association of Music Merchants, is a not-for-profit association that consolidates MANY organizations through the music products industry world-wide.

BassBooks.com has been a member for almost 10 years now — and their largest event (Winter NAMM) was in Anaheim, California, this past January 24-27.

We made our annual pilgrimage and just able to geek out on all things music for 3 days. It's always a blast, getting to see musicians, the instruments, new technology, and best of all - old friends).

Here's a link to video we caught of 2 guys jamming - there is this stuff all over the place. We also made a photo album on all we saw, posted on Facebook. Kind of a virtual tour. Click here to check it out, and enjoy.
