I will be there. I. In all likelihood outside the doors. Tickets are hard to come by. Hoping to pick up my Compass Rose from Rick Turner. There is a jam on a grassy knoll with dinner following. I was planning on making that. It is right outside the convention. I live right down the street from the NAMM show.

Hey R..as usual i am in the dark..what city is the Convention and when??
thanks.. have you seen all the orders Rick has?.. i am pretty sure Mds 725 going to love his..

Pardon my ignorance but I was looking into going to NAMM. Is it not open to the general public? Is that what the badges are about?

I don't have the connections to get into the show, so I live it through the videos of Aldrine and Music Guy Mike. Hopefully they will be videoing. I watch every one. They both do a great job of it. Looking forward to those videos

I try and take a ton of pictures for my coverage and talk about new and exciting stuff. I figure UU and others have the people to do awesome videos.

I didn't take that way. I appreciate all the info that the UU family offers. It helps me know what is available. And what is coming. Add to that all of the opinions and personal experience. I love it. Thanks to all that contribute.

New booth number for Compass Rose, Turner, and Renaissance instruments: 2895 in the thick of it all in Hall D. Sharing with Henman Guitars. I won't have many ukes, but the ones I'll have will be spectacular, and they'll have pickups...

Argh! I'm looking for a CR Mini Jumbo (tenor scale) to complement the CR jumbo baritone I've ordered, but I won't be able to get to NAMM this year. If anyone going gets their hands on a mini jumbo, please buy it and sell it to me. :)

Ha ha! As you know, I've got a CR baritone jumbo in the order queue, and I swear I'll get myself a CR mini jumbo, even if I have to get in line and order a new one from you .... :)

Have a great time at NAMM!

I'm not sure you'll be able to put down your new Moore Bettah long enough to break in another ukulele!
