Summer NAMM Begins

| June 18, 2010

Hi all...

Art Thompson and I are in Nashville attending the Summer NAMM show. Well, we haven't actually gotten to the show yet, as it doesn't open for an hour, but we're ready to walk the aisles and report on all the gear goodies for you. We'll try to routinely post photos and news items both here and on Facebook and Twitter, so log on every once in a while between today and Sunday if you want the info. You can also ask us to check out your fave products by posting a wish list on our Facebook wall or e-mailing me at We'll try to report back as soon as possible. Wish us luck!
