Here’s more video from NAMM 2012. I like to call this “Four Handed Bass”. Oliver McEwan was showing us his new Mike Lull bass and demonstrating some pedals and amp gear from TC electronics when Uriah Duffy wanted in on the action. Watch this hilarious video to see what happened!
I just got back from the electrical atmosphere that is NAMM! Words just cannot explain how incredible the experience really is! A whole convention center full of the world’s brightest and best musicians and manufacturers all there to hang! I already plan to go back next year! New friends were made, a couple of musicians lost respect (more on that in a later post), and I learned about a side of this music business that I really didn’t pay much attention to – the merchant side of it all. At NAMM everyone displays the best that they have to offer in hopes to woo new customers and raise the bar on instrument manufacturing. All of the craftsmen present their take on age old instruments and the attendees have the opportunity to try everything out! Great Experience!!
It’s nothing to walk down any isle and hear incredible musicianship. Here’s a video of my bro’s Jermaine Hall and Oliver McEwan in an impromptu jam session at the TC Electronics booth. They’re jamming to MJ’s Human Nature. Enjoy!
Guys I’m headed to NAMM in Anaheim, CA!!! This is my first year and I am so very excited to be attending. For those of you that may have never heard of it (from namm.org):
NAMM, the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM), commonly called NAMM in reference to the organization’s popular NAMM trade shows, is the not-for-profit association that unifies, leads and strengthens the $17 billion global music products industry. Our association—and our trade shows—serve as a hub for people wanting to seek out the newest innovations in musical products, recording technology, sound and lighting. NAMM’s activities and programs are designed to promote music making to people of all ages.
So guys, the infamous Carvin Card came in the mail over the holidays! I was excited to know that the process of building my bass had begun. The postcard is pretty much cut and dry. You can hardly read it, but the card lists the buyers info (Name, address, etc.), your salesperson’s name, and says the following:
