Summer NAMM is once again upon us. It's the show that people love to hate. Or hate to love. On one hand, there seem to be as many people here as in the Marriot bar on a Saturday night at Winter NAMM, on the other hand, the small size gives attendees a chance to hang out way more than they would in L.A.

I'll be Tweeting as much as the overtaxed Twitter server lets me. Anyway, SNAMM!
