How to Train for NAMM (Video) – A Gear Gods Guide

War is hell.

– William Tecumseh Sherman

NAMM is hell-ier.

– Trey Xavier (who has been there once)

I kid, of course. NAMM is everything I love and most of the people I admire in one great big hall. The main problem arises from the neglect of our own physical needs to enjoy this Disneyland-esque heaven on earth for just a little bit longer and squeeze every last drop of fun out of it. And it is a bit of an assault on the senses.

Good luck, and godspeed.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013.
