I know what you mean, but satin finishes really work well on stage under lights.I wish Yamaha would offer more than a handful of colors on all their drums, except PHX. I would LOVE to see an end to all satin finishes, just boring boring boring to me. Rant over.
It will definitely be cool your first time (and it was cool back in the day). I started going to NAMM around '98 and have gone somewhat regularly -- I've skipped a few years here and there. If you like to see more than just drums, it can be a neat place (though there's plenty to see in the drums section). It just seems to have gotten louder and louder (or I'm just getting older and older -- this one is a fact, ain't it?).Never did NAMM, have always been on the fence if it was something I wanted to do or not. Is it cool? Think I would rather do Chicago drum show where it feels like there's more to buy.
NAMM is still a trade show, so almost all the buying is done in the form of orders by dealers that will be delivered to them later. I believe some of the exhibitors at NAMM will sell some of their display items, but it's not a "shopping" show like Chicago is.Never did NAMM, have always been on the fence if it was something I wanted to do or not.
