Yesterday I bumped into Bobby Owsinksi at NAMM Show.  If you haven’t subscribed to his blog yet, you must.  Bobby is a talent in so many areas.

If you are a newbie to NAMM, here are some things that will help you enjoy the show, thanks to the Bobby O.

Whether this is your first time at Winter NAMM or you’ve been going for some time, here are a few things keep in mind while you’re there.

Zero In On What You Need To See And Go There First – If you’ve seen a product announcement in a magazine that you’d like to check out, go to that booth first before you look at anything else. NAMM is large enough and spread out enough that it’s very easy to get sidetracked and never see that item or not be able to spend enough time checking it out when you do find it.

Look For Trends – Sometimes it’s best to breeze through a particular hall without stopping at any of the booths, just to get a feel for a trend that might be happening. Maybe you’ll notice that a lot of manufacturers are offering guitars that spew white foam this year. After you notice the trend, it’s good to circle back and get the story from each manufacturer as to how that model came about. That way, you can find out who has the best foam, who came up with the idea and who’s a copycat, the technical differences between manufacturers, and get a better idea about retail pricing.
