I made the annual trip to Anaheim CA, for NAMM 2009. It was crazier than ever. With all of the talk of the economy, it was a nice feeling for once to be over-run with people at a trade show. As usual, we shared a booth with the kind ladies at George L’s, and Pedaltrain. Visual Sound introduced 2 new pedals, the Open Road Overdrive, and the True Tone Clean Boost. I did not get the chance to take many pictures, but here is one of my boss, Bob, and the Steves.
Here is one of me in demo mode:
Here is one of the entire booth:
Recently, I have become a believer in TonePros locking tail piece studs, and decided to stop by their booth and pick up a AVRII locking bridge to put on my Les Paul. They were kind enough to sell me one, and yes, it made a noticeable improvement in the stability of the guitar. I must also add that the Tonepros guys are a funny, and rowdy bunch. Hats off to Mac for his great stories. I still don’t know if he was telling the truth or not. Special thanks go out to James Pennebaker with Fender for letting us borrow an amp for the show, and to J. Hayes with PRS who showed me the elusive “James Bond” chord.
