So the good folks at NAMM gave me (that's me, Dren, your humble newsletter editor) a press pass to this year's show, allowing me to cover some of the NAMM goings on for our fine GANG members.

Oddly enough, a lot of those folks were still there, and haven't aged too gracefully (I should've taken pictures.).
