Winter NAMM 2010 Is Over...What did we learn?

| January 19, 2010

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.
