The NAMM Show!
I spent the past weekend at the 2008 NAMM Show at the Anaheim Convention Center, nearly an hour’s drive south of here. People come from around the world to attend this huge music products show, but I’m just a NAMM commuter. Never mind that in the days leading to the show I was suffering from a nasty ear infection which made me temporarily deaf in one ear for a few days. Not the best thing to have when you’re going to the NAMM show. Anyway, after going Thursday and not going in due to a mix-up regarding my name badge, I finally got to go in on Friday and Sunday, armed with my video camera, running into friends, meeting celebrities and playing with all that gear.
The only product that really floored me was the Korg Kaossilator, which lists at only $199 and is a real cool toy for making all sorts of noises, and takes up way less space than another keyboard.Watch the video above to see my NAMM adventures.
