I'm finally beginning to decompress from the NAMM show, although the incessant rain in the Bay Area is preventing me from spending some much needed time outside (you spend about 3% of your NAMM day outside, and you begin to miss oxygen after awhile).

If I had to neatly package this year's NAMM in one overly simplistic word, it'd be "optimism." Whereas last year's show was a bit bleak, both in spirit and attendance, this year's was buzzing with a reinvigorated sense of glee and nuttiness; a good indication of the industry's renewed growth after an unusually tough year.

Honestly, I don't think I saw a bass product that completely blew my mind from a technological perspective (as has happened in year's past, e.g. the first time I saw the Line 6 Variax Bass), but there was much cleverness, beauty, and craftsmanship on display. Be sure to check out the bassplayer.com Community page for our Flickr gallery and the BP Twitter feed @bassplayermag for pix, vids, and more.
