Hey yeah, sorry should have gotten on here earlier - last 2 weeks have been very hectic trying to catch up on everything.
Got some pics to share that I put on FB. Plus got get some more of the wife's phone. Firstly, NAMM is amazing and mind blowing, don't which way to look there is that much going on around you and some very amazing bass players showcasing all the great gear on show.
Here's a couple of Jim Bergantino at his booth and got to check out the new HG410 up close. This is a very nice compact, sealed 410 in a 212 box. Jim and his wife Holly are fantastic people and Jim has a great sense of humour besides building some of the best cabs in the business.



Here we are at the Sadowsky booth with Roger Sadowsky and Lisa Hahn his shop manager and senior builder. Both amazing people and some of those Sadowskys ....well :partydance:
Let me say that the MetroExpress should be a hit because they are every bit as good as the standard Metros but cheaper without any sacrifice apart from a limited range of colours and models.



I'll post some photos - just need to do something now and I'll get some more up here.

Here's some more pics from NAMM 2018 - Got to meet Jeff Genzler which was great and got to check out the new BA410-3. This is a HUGE sounding cab. Looking forward to getting in some of these.



Got to check in with Sheldon Dingwall which was really exciting, and he is one cool fella with some very nice new things happening to his line of basses. Got to check up close the new Combustions, NGs 6 string and 3x pup configuration as well as the Standard D-Birds. Also got to check out the new Limited Edition DarkGlass 10th Anniversary NG3 which btw, we have on order and are being snapped very quickly.



Brian Barrett from the Low End who is a top bloke and makes a great drinking buddy :drinkingbuddies: with some very awesome LEJs which a couple of them are heading over and will be here very soon, keep an eye out for these.




Here's Helge Glockenklang who was sharing the Glockenklang booth with Marleaux Basses which were really nice to check out.


Here we have the CEO of Sire Global, David Yu who wanted to show us the new Sire Marcus Miller basses M2 & V3 at even lower prices, being released in 2018, keep an eye out for these.


Had a great chat to Rob Elrick about his Elrick basses, who is an unbelievable craftsman as well as a gentleman.



Managed to catch up with Roger Baer, his Tube Di Preamp is really going to be great when it is released later in the year, and Roger is working on some new cabs which he hopes to have released later in the year as well.
